Registering a business

Guichet-entreprises.fr enables you to complete your business creation application online. The application will be forwarded to the relevant authority for processing.

They act as an interface between French administrations and businesses.

Modifying the information about your business

At any moment, you can complete the procedure to modify the information about your business on guichet-entreprises.fr. The update will be taken into account by all the relevant authorities (tax services, URSSAF, INSEE, public registers, etc.). Be careful though, you must declare these modifications one month after they occurred at the latest.

At the moment, only natural persons who chose the micro-entrepreneur status can complete the procedure to modify the information about a business. If this is not your case, you must directly contact your centre for business formalities (CFE).

  • Your personal situation (your identity, the identity of your husband/wife if he or she works in the business, your home address, information regarding a declaration of non-seizability, a declaration of allocation of assets (EIRL) or a contract of support),
  • Your establishment(s) (modification, temporary or definitive business closure, modification of an establishment's address, opening/closure of an establishment, modification of the trade name or commercial sign of an establishment, information regarding the identity or place of residence of a person entitled to take decisions on behalf of the establishment).
