The National Registration Center

All business entities must register with the National Registration Center. The National Registration Center is the public institution responsible for registering and maintaining the registration information of all businesses in Albania. The national registration center functions as a single window for business registration in Albania; the new business is automatically registered with the tax administration, social and health insurance institute, and the labor office.

A business is considered officially registered after the registration with National Registration Center has been completed and the registration certificate has been issued. The registration certificate contains the Unique Business Identification Number which is needed for dealing with most institutions and business partners. The registration procedure is very fast, it takes about 24 hours to register a new business and receive the registration certificate.

One of the functions of the National Registration Center is to maintain the Albanian Commercial Register and guarantee free access to the public. The NRC portal provides full public access to the current and historical registration information of all business entities. After you register a company in Albania you can use the NRC portal to check the registration status of your business.
