The Austrian Business Service Portal 'Unternehmensserviceportal' (USP) recently won silver in the category of 'Successful cooperation projects' of the 2015 German eGovernment Contest (eGovernment-Wettbewerb).
The portal is jointly coordinated by the Federal Ministry of Finance and the Federal Chancellery. It was launched in 2010 and aims to serve as a single entry point through which businesses can fulfil their legal obligations and reduce their administrative burdens. Registered businesses can conduct a wide range of transactions with the government, organised according to business events. They can, for example, use applications like FinanzOnline (a "virtual tax office""), the electronic data exchange with the Austrian Social Security Institutions (ELDA), and the Data Processing Register (DVR).
