Business Licensing

QKL Logo

Based on law no. 10081, dated February 23, 2009, which reforms the business licensing process in Albania, the National Licensing Center (NLC) has started its activity as a central public institution, which is subordinate to the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Energy since June 2009. With its one-stop-shop services and shortened, transparent and quick procedures, the NLC reduces the administrative barriers to free enterprise, reduces the costs of business related to the licensing process and minimizes the level of informality, thus improving considerably the business climate in Albania. NLC offeres these services:

Handles licensing and permitting procedures, compliant with law no. 10081;

Keeps and administers the National Registry of Licenses and Permits;

Provides free public access, as per provisions of the law;

Informs and advises applicants and the public at large on licensing and permitting criteria. more…
