Sunday, August 28, 2022 is the fifth Sunday this year without a trade ban. This means that larger stores will open, and full operation will also include shopping malls.
In 2022 – as in 2021 – there are seven business Sundays. So far, the ban has not been applied during the last Sunday in January, April and June and the Sunday before Easter. There will be three more trading days until the end of this year. Exceptions will be: the last Sunday in August and the following Sunday before Christmas.
This means that stores will open on Sunday, August 28. Next Sunday will be December 11th.
Sunday trading ban
The law on the gradual ban on Sunday trading came into effect on March 1, 2018. The regulations provide for a list of 32 exemptions. The ban does not apply, among other things, to post offices, pastry shops, ice cream parlors, liquid gas stations, flower shops, newsagents or cafes.
According to the provisions, the ban also does not apply to commercial establishments where trade is carried out in person by a businessman who is a natural person, working for his own account and for his own account.
Since the beginning of February, changes have been made to the Sunday trading ban, the purpose of which is to tighten the regulations that have been in effect until now. After the amendment enters into force, stores can be opened on non-commercial Sundays, which also provide postal services, if the revenue from this activity exceeds 40 percent of the revenue of a particular branch. According to the law of the Ministry of Finance, sales records must be kept separately for each commercial outlet, even if the entrepreneur has several such outlets.
