With the onset of the Internet and various high speed Web connections, it's no longer necessary that you endure long queues to register for German business types. The same is applicable for applying for digital certificates too. Germany's DVLA or even the German Ministry of Economic Affairs provides standard Internet access for everybody, but in the event that you still need more, you can avail of many different alternatives which can be found on the internet. Whether you would like to keep a database of your contacts or need to get in touch with a customer from abroad, you will find a suitable option online.

Digital certificates can be found in a variety of formats that fit your needs. If you would like to secure your German national identity card, the most common format is your DIE-EKU-format. Additionally, this is the most common for applications like tax registration, death and birth records and other official records. The DIE-EKU-format is a bonded data format and comes packed on most internet browsers.

Another frequent option is the EHR-format, which is the typical format in Germany for electronic registration. EHR is supported by the majority of systems. Most companies prefer this procedure due to its ease, however, it can also be time consuming as a result of the a variety of paper prerequisites, computer demands and software installation required. This alternative is recommended only for big businesses and associations with loads of work to do.

The EHR-format is best suited for small businesses with only a few workers. It's cost-effective and contributes to faster processing. For companies that have to get their own servers, the software setup is frequently a issue as well as the paper requirement. But most companies prefer the paper-free process because it takes less documentation.
