Registering for the Business Service Portal (USP)

The  USP offers access to over 50 e-government services German text in one place. Registration for the USP is designed with your security in mind and can be carried out free of charge at any time.

What is the benefit of registering?

Most services on the  USP can only be accessed when it is known which business is currently active.  As part of the registration, a person is designated as the USP-administrator. This person can then allocate further roles and rights to employees or to themselves of their own accord, and thus access the various  USP-services erhalten.

How does the registration process work?

You can either register as a person using your mobile signature or personal FinanzOnline login and then link a business, or register as a business using your FinanzOnline login and then link a natural person.

It is only possible to register as a person for pre-existing businesses if you are authorised to represent the business independently. This is generally the case if:

  • it is set down in the companies register (‘... represents independently’);
  • you are a sole proprietor;
  • you are a partner in an open partnership;
  • you are a general partner in a limited partnership; or
  • you are registered as the chairperson in the register of associations.
