Bosnia and Herzegovina.Doing Business 2012

Doing Business sheds light on how easy or difficult it is for a local entrepreneur to open and run a small to medium-size business when complying with relevant regulations. It measures and tracks changes in regulations affecting 10 areas in the life cycle of a business: starting a business, dealing with construction permits, getting electricity, registering property, getting credit, protecting investors, paying taxes, trading across borders, enforcing contracts and resolving insolvency. In a series of annual reports Doing Business presents quantitative indicators on business regulations and the protection  of property rights that can be compared across 183 economies, from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, over time.
This economy profile presents the Doing Business indicators for Bosnia and Herzegovina. To allow useful comparison, it also provides data for other selected  economies (comparator economies) for each indicator. The data in this report are current as of June 1, 2011 (except for the paying taxes indicators, which  cover the period January- December 2010). The data not only highlight the extent of obstacles to doing business; they also help identify the source of those  obstacles, supporting policy makers in designing regulatory reform.
