Digital signature: ID Austria

Once you identify yourself on the system using your digital signature, we will automatically match you to the companies for which you can register a "Mein USP" account. If you can represent your company yourself, with no need for additional authorisation, we recommend you use this method. You can usually represent your company if:

  • you are recorded as a representative in the Register of Companies [Firmenbuch];
  • you are an individual entrepreneur;
  • you are a partner [Gesellschafter/Gesellschafterin] in an Austrian general partnership;
  • you are a general partner [Komplementär/Komplementärin] in an Austrian limited partnership;
  • your company has granted you representative authority; or
  • you are registered in the Register of Associations [Vereinsregister] as your association’s chairperson [Obfrau/Obmann].

Just register with your digital signature, and the system will guide you through the rest of the process.
