Developing a transaction portal for businesses

Information on the administration's activity as well as on electronic government services at all levels should be easily accessible for companies operating in Switzerland. With the development of a transaction portal which provides the online services of the Confederation, the cantons and the communes, it should be easier for businesses to carry out official business and their administrative burden should be reduced.

Target state of the strategic project

The ten most frequently requested electronic government services for businesses should be easy to access electronically and seamlessly without any knowledge of governmental responsibilities via a national e-government portal by the end of 2019. This aim will be implemented with the one-stop-shop project. This comprehensive transaction portal should enable companies to seamlessly carry out all electronically available bureaucratic steps at all federal levels in a virtual location online.
