NRD companies delivered the Business Registration System for the electronic One Stop Centre for investors in Uganda

In December 2016 NRD companies (Norway Registers Development AS, “NRD” UAB) launched a modern, reliable and secure digital Business Registration System (BRS) for Uganda Registration Services bureau (URSB). BRS is a part of One Stop Centre (OSC) project that is currently being implemented in Uganda by NRD companies.

During this half year project, 13 “NRD” UAB team members have been involved and provided services for the BRS system development. They performed system analysis, design and documentation, system development and deployment, data migration from the legacy system as well as training of power users and staff. They will also provide system support and maintenance for the next 12 months. Now the system is in daily use by approximately 50 URSB staff members in various offices around Uganda and processes well over 1000 transactions daily.

BRS was designed and implemented to be an internal system at URSB that automates the current business processes for business name reservation, business name and business registration. The system was equipped with interfaces to the system of National Identification and Registration Authority for
verification of Ugandan national identification documents (ID and passport) and e-Tax system of Uganda Revenue Authority for payment assessment and verification functionality. BRS is also equipped with a secure API for future expansion and external connectivity in mind. This API is used to interface with One Stop Centre of Uganda Investment Authority so that URSB services can be accessible online through it. The same API can be utilised by any other external system requiring access to the data in the business registry.

URSB with the Business Registration System is one of the 7 agencies that register and license business in Uganda that will integrate their systems with the One Stop Centre solution. The Integrated One-Stop-Centre solution will automate the current UIA’s One-Stop-Centre processes and include a dynamic and transactional web portal. The web portal will serve as a central source of information regarding business operations and it will enable investors and entrepreneurs (local and international) to apply for business registration, business licenses, tax registration, and all the necessary permits required for doing business in Uganda. The web portal will also serve as a central place for the information on investment, incentives, taxation, business registration, and other guidelines to local and international Investors and entrepreneurs.
