Investment Registration for Rwanda Now Online
Ranked by the World Bank as the third easiest place to do business in Africa, recent developments in Rwanda may see it move a notch up the ranks following the launch of a new online platform for investment registration and issuance of environmental impact assessment certificates.
Launched in October, the platform will enable investors to track and process tax exemption requests as well as request site assessments and allow for the submission of applications for the issuance of various business and compliance related certificates.
The platform is run by the Rwandan Development Board (RDB) who is responsible for the issuance of certificates of operation to first time Investors into Rwanda.This service is performed by the Office of the Registrar General (ORG) who is also responsible for the registration of intelletual property in Rwanda.
At the launch of the online platform, RDB announced that the new online platform will a be a one stop shop for investors in Rwanda and significantly reduce the processing time of certificates and investment registration by half. At Rouse Africa we hope to see the RDB expand the platform to include the registration of IP.
