Registration of one-man businesses
When an EU-citizen applies for an EU-residence document as a worker, and when the applicant is employed at a one-man business, SIRI will registrate information about the employer of the one-man business.
When SIRI receives an application for an EU-residence document as a worker, and when the applicant is an employee at a one-man business, we will process information about the employer. When SIRI receives an employement contract or a Declaration by the employer, we use this information about the one-man business as documentation for the worker’s employment.
We will make a registration of this information in our system, where we process our cases. This particular information is registrated in order to see how many employees work at the one-man business.
