Trade Register to shorten processing time
Our new system for processing Trade Register notifications was launched on 12 May 2014. Since the launch, we have had a backlog of notifications. Currently, the processing time is about 24 working days. We will start to clear the backlog during the summer so that the processing time will be back to normal – 8 working days – in the autumn.
