The Bulgarian state administration is finally about to adopt an electronic one-stop-shop approach to local businesses after taking six years to fully develop the project that will reduce the time needed to obtain various permits and licences.
The IT product will offer users instructions and downloadable forms that will be standardised across the local municipalities, said the Bulgarian Industrial Association. The updated version of the product was unveiled Thu by the Bulgarian Small and Medium Enterprises Agency (BSMEA), BIA and officials from the national association of Bulgarian municipalities. OECD entrepreneurs can register a start-up company in 15 days while the time needed in Bulgaria is 32 days. BSMEA will provide the IT product to the municipalities free of charge. In addition to detailed information on regulated licensing procedures, the platform will also provide information on EU funding options (Dnevnik)
