9The Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) has once again expanded EasyGov.swiss, its online service desk for companies: the digital platform also now provides support with preparing submissions to debt enforcement offices. In the future, companies and private individuals will be able to input information for requests for debt enforcement proceedings and extracts from the debt enforcement register. The portal now offers assistance with SME financing too.
Bern, 20.11.2018 – SME Portal and EasyGov.swiss together generate annual benefits of around CHF 47 million for Swiss companies. According to a SECO study published on 20 November 2018, both of these platforms are highly appreciated by users in the economy. SME Portal alone has over 37,000 users per month.
Federal Councillor Johann Schneider-Ammann, together with representatives from cantons and the economy, launched EasyGov.swiss – the new online desk for companies, on 6 November 2017. The new platform, which was realised in the scope of eGovernment Strategy Switzerland, makes interacting with the authorities even more digitised and user-friendly. The electronic transactional platform facilitates the exchange of information between the economy and the authorities, and reduces companies’ administrative burden.
