Opening of business

When you start doing a business, the most important is to register the activity in the appropriate Register and to have a Tax
Identification Number, which is necessary in the payment operations and which will represent a unique identifier for your
data and the tax procedures performing in the Public Revenue Office.

Do the first step, register your activity!

In case you want to open a company, depending on the activity, it is necessary to register it in the basic Register of legal
entities that is kept by the Central Registry
The registration procedure is performed through the One-Stop-Shop system, which means that all necessary activities for
registration of your business and allocation of a Tax Identification Number (TIN) will be done at the Central Registry desk
within 4 hours, without coming to the Public Revenue Office.
Provided for realizing of the activity it is necessary previously getting a license, permission, concession, approval or other
specific document, the way and the place of its receiving is regulated by special law for the activity.
The persons, like holders of family agricultural economy, craftsmen, lawyers, notaries, executors etc, who are not registered in the Trade Register, depending on the activity they wish to perform, have to be registered in the competent Associations:
✓ Professional Association (e.g. Notary Chamber, Lawyers Chamber, Executors Chamber, Craftsmen Chamber etc), or
✓ Bodies of the appropriate Ministries (e.g. The Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water supply, where the Register of holders of family agricultural economy of first, second and third category according the Law on Agriculture and Rural Development is kept, etc.).
The appropriate data for registration, the Associations or the Bodies submit to the Central Registry, after which the TIN,
activity code and a legal form will be issued.
