Business founders and entrepreneurs in North Rhine-Westphalia can now submit their business registrations to the regulatory authorities seamlessly via electronic means through the websites of the Chambers of Commerce and Industry and the “Gewerbe-Service-Portal.NRW”.
There are plans to develop the Gewerbe-Service-Portal.NRW into a comprehensive business service platform to enable businesses to complete more and more administrative processes from home.
The portal allows procedures to be completed through menu-based input screens with completion wizards to assist applicants. Additional support in filling out forms is provided by “Guido,” a self-learning chatbot who accumulates knowledge and passes this on to users of the portal.
As part of the Gewerbe-Service-Portal.NRW, the single point of contact offers support with regard to cross-border services and the recognition of professional qualifications.
www.make-it-in-germany.com is the German government’s portal for qualified professionals from around the world. The portal, which can be browsed in a variety of different languages, offers information for those interested in moving to Germany – starting with preparations in the home country, to the actual move, to the first steps to be taken in Germany.
