Procedures to set up a company

Emilia-Romagna Region promotes simplification, transparency and legality to ensure effective and reliable governance, together with easy and fast procedures for businesses and citizens.

All procedures required to register a company are now processed electronically in a ‘Single Communication procedure’ that allows applicants to start their business activities on the same day. The procedure is valid for tax, social security and insurance purposes and should be submitted, after digital signature, to the Business Registry Office of the relevant Chamber of Commerce.
