Statistical Register of Business
Statistical Register of Business (SRB) functions within the Statistics Agency of Kosovo and shall include all businesses that operate within the economic territory of Kosovo.
SRB is based on the Law No. 04/L-036 on Official Statistics of the Republic of Kosovo and the European Commission Regulation (EC) No. 177/2008 on the Establishment of the Business Register for statistical purposes, which establishes a common framework for the creation of harmonized registries for statistical purposes, serving as a tool for the preparation and coordination of surveys, as a source of information for statistical analysis of population and business demographics, use of administrative data, for identifying and establishing statistical units.
SRB so far it does not include: Public Administration, Non-profit organizations and international organizations and bodies. But under the Regulation on the registers as mentioned above we hope that by the end of this year these categories of enterprises will be included in the SRB.
This register is based on the data received from the Business Registration Agency in Kosovo (BRAK), Tax Administration of Kosovo (TAK) and statistical surveys performed by SAK that are associated with businesses.
