If a person works in a business with many establishments, you need to indicate the activity of the establishment or workplace, and not the main activity of the business.
Example: a person works in a shoe store (a salesperson) that belongs to a business whose main activity is the production of that product, you must indicate specialty dealer and not shoe factory.
If the person is self-employed, you must indicate the type of activity that the person does.
Example: accounting, furniture retailer, mechanic auto-repair shop, etc.

Example: merchandise shipping business, auto body painting garage, hotel, restaurant, textile mill, secondary school, Municipal City Hall, etc.
