Serbia Enhances Digitalization with New Application for Entrepreneurs’ Data Amendment and Deletion
The Serbian Business Registers Agency (APR) has introduced a new application on its electronic services portal for submitting all applications related to changes in entrepreneurs’ data and their deletions.
This digital option coexists with the traditional method, allowing entrepreneurs to continue submitting physical applications in person or by mail if they prefer.
For the e-Registration process, entrepreneurs need:
- A qualified electronic certificate (e-signature) from a Serbian certification authority.
- An installed electronic card reader and the updated NEXU application for e-signing, available for free on the APR website.
- A Visa, MasterCard, or DinaCard for fee payments.
Documents initially in paper form, such as consents or certificates (for example, tax compliance proofs), need to be digitized for e-submission. Lawyers submitting the application or notaries can undertake this conversion, guaranteeing the document’s authenticity with their electronic signature or a qualified electronic seal.
Entrepreneurs can create documents like proxy authorizations in original electronic format using their qualified electronic signature.
This initiative is part of the Agency’s ongoing efforts to fully digitalize various registration processes for entrepreneurs, building on the previously introduced online business foundation registrations.
