Fourteenth in a series of annual reports comparing business regulation in 190 economies, Doing Business 2017 measures aspects of regulation affecting 10 areas of everyday business activity: â¢ Starting a business â¢ Dealing with construction permits â¢ Getting electricity â¢ Registering property â¢ Getting credit â¢ Protecting minority investors â¢ Paying taxes â¢ Trading across borders â¢ Enforcing contracts â¢ Resolving insolvency These areas are included in the distance to frontier score and ease of doing business ranking. Doing Business also measures features of labor market regulation, which is not included in these two measures. This yearâs report introduces major improvements by expanding the paying taxes indicators to cover postfiling processesâtax audits, tax refunds and tax appealsâand presents analysis of pilot data on selling to the government which measures public procurement regulations. Also for the first time this year Doing Business collects data on Somalia, bringing the total number of economies covered to 190. Using the data originally developed by Women, Business and the Law, this year for the first time Doing Business adds a gender component to three indicatorsâstarting a business, registering property, and enforcing contractsâand finds that those economies which limit womenâs access in these areas have fewer women working in the private sector both as employers and employees. The report updates all indicators as of June 1, 2016, ranks economies on their overall 'ease of doing business', and analyzes reforms to business regulation â â identifying which economies are strengthening their business environment the most. Doing Business illustrates how reforms in business regulations are being used to analyze economic outcomes for domestic entrepreneurs and for the wider economy. It is a flagship product produced in partnership by the World Bank Group that garners worldwide attention on regulatory barriers to entrepreneurship. More than 137 economies have used the Doing Business indicators to shape reform agendas and monitor improvements on the ground. In addition, the Doing Business data has generated over 2,182 articles in peer-reviewed academic journals since its inception.
