eBusiness EA-SH is a service offered in the Service Portal of the state of Schleswig-Holstein for business registrations, changes and deregistrations (business notifications) all across Schleswig-Holstein.


  • You save the trip to the authority and, of course, the trip back!
  • You have more time for yourself or for your business activities!
  • You can save even more time if you would have made the trip by car and would have had to look for a parking space. In addition, you don't have to take a number online, but you are always the first in the queue!
  • You save transport costs and parking fees.

Yes, because the online procedure assists you in gathering the required data for your business notification, as you are guided through the application by an assistant, step by step.


The service itself is free of charge. However, this does not apply for the fees charged for business registration that are based on the Tariff item 11.1 of the state regulations for administrative fees (General fee schedule).
