Establishing a business in Albania has been made easier through the establishment of the National Business Center, as a single one-stop shop for providing business registration and licensing services. These administrative services are done through simple electronic procedures, in a short time and with symbolic tariffs.

Additionally, NBC accepts and processes applications for licenses, as might be required for specific activities, and issues the same accordingly.
