Starting a sole proprietorship

Natural persons who wish to operate in the commercial sector based in Greece can digitally start their own business, without having to pre-register with the General Commercial Register (GEMI) and the National Social Security Agency (eEFKA).

The initiation can also be carried out by a third party on your behalf, provided that you authorize them through this application and after they have first been registered in the National Register of Communications (EMEP), so that they can confirm their mobile phone number.
