Bus/Financial - Business/Commerce (general) / Economic Chamber member data
German term or phrase: FG / BG
These abbreviations appear on a form of data for a member of an Economic Chamber. For context, the section of the list appears as follows:

Rechtsform: Nicht protokollierter Einzelunternehmber
Berechtigungsart: Freies Gewerbe
Fachgruppe(n): FG: 142 BG: 2 Beginn: (Datum)
Registerzahl: ###
Ausstellungsdatum: (Datum)

I think that "FG" stands for "Fachgruppe," and "BG" for "Betriebsgruppe," which I'd translate as "professional group" and "business group," respectively. Is this correct?

Explanation:
Fachgruppen are trades. Sparten are lines of business. FG would be Fachgruppe. I'm not sure about BG: 2 Beginn.
