By Valérie Aston on 9 January 2010 · Viewed 3817 times · Questions

Ten days ago, I talked to you about the Guichet Unique, a one stop shop to declare any type of business in France. This new online tool was supposed to be launched on 1st January. Well, surprise, surprise, the Guichet Unique is not working and it is likely to take a few more month before it does.

The launch of the Guichet Unique has been postponed until 1st February 2010. Members of staff at Centre de Formalites des Entreprises (CFE) have not been trained either to use this new tool… So just go the good old fashion way for now Chambre de Commerce, Chambre de Metiers and Urssaf.
