Doing Business, registering property

number of procedures, 2005–2017

Info Edit

    A procedure is defined as any interaction of the company’s employees or managers, or any party acting on behalf of the company, with external parties, including government agencies, notaries, the land registry, the cadastre, utility companies and public inspectors—and the hiring of private inspectors and technical experts apart from in-house architects and engineers. Procedures that must be completed in the same building but in different offices are counted as separate procedures. Interactions between company employees, such as development of the warehouse plans and inspections conducted by employees, are not counted as procedures. However, interactions with external parties that are required for the architect to prepare the plans and drawings (such as obtaining topographic or geological surveys), or to have such documents approved or stamped by external parties, are counted as procedures.
