Saudi Arabia: Unified E-code Service Launched

Saudi Gazette, 14 January 2024: The Saudi Business Centre has announced it has launched the first phase of a Unified Electronic Code service.

The data of commercial registrations will be linked with municipal licences, tax certificates and civil defence permits at the Unified Electronic Code.

The service has been launched to provide the latest and most reliable electronic data of establishments and address the issue of clutter caused by establishments having to display their primary data certificates at their premises and branches.

It also aims to reduce the time spent in control and inspection operations.

It has been launched together with the Commerce Ministry, the Municipal and Rural Affairs Ministry and the Housing Ministry, the Zakat, Tax and Customs Authority and the General Directorate of Civil Defence.

Subsequent phases will cover all operational data and licences.

Business owners will be able to access the Unified Electronic Code service via the platform of the Saudi Business Centre easily.
