SERVICES FOR BUSINESS BH DIASPORA
1. SUPPORTING SERVICES IN THE INVESTMENT PROCESS
In the process of considering the location clients would like to invest in, we offer market research services by applying different methods of market analyses and market opportunities, such as SWOT or PEST analyses, trend analysis, conditions (social, economic, ecological and technological). This service also includes an analysis of the political and legal environment (regulations and laws related to permits, patents, environmental regulations, different legislation relevant for business doing), economic and technological environment and competition and how they influence business doing and growth of investment. In this way, our clients get the necessary support for getting insight into the position and opportunities on the market based on which, along with the feasibility study, they will be able to decide whether they will invest or not.
This service is offered to help clients make a rational, profitable and politically correct decision. A good feasibility study implies a systematic overview of all key parameters and their presentation in an acceptable form. The document is prepared prior to drafting a project, for it covers the key question: Why should (not) the project be implemented? The contents of the study depend on the situation and the project but some elements are common to all studies – general analyses, technical, economic, ecological, legal, financial, etc. Good feasibility study elaborates the risks from failure and enables the client to compare different potential project investments in order to make his/her decision based on arguments presented.
Support in Finding an Adequate Location
One of the key questions for investors is the investment’s location. Finding an adequate location is time consuming for investors, since it requires their physical presence in BiH. The Center offers the following services: 1) finding adequate piece of land, 2) finding adequate office premises, 3) finding adequate virtual office (Virtual office includes the acquisition of an address for company’s headquarters and mail management – receipt and forwarding of mail, with additional options such as renting a desk and meeting room(s), on as needed basis).

Visits, especially the first one, are crucial for potential implementation of investments. Having this in mind, the Center invests much in good and timely planning since this is the key to a successful visit( good impressions may lead to more interest in investing).

In order to accelerate the registration process which is one of the main bottle necks in the process of investing in BiH, the Center provides services related to the registration and acquisition of other relevant permits.
