The user who wants to use eServices on behalf of and for the account of a business entity may register with eServices with a qualified certificate issued by a certification authority to the user as an authorised person of the business entity. It is not possible to use private qualified certificates for business purposes.
In the case referred to in the preceding paragraph, the ESS shall notify the user of the completed registration via e-mail. 
The user who wants to use eServices on behalf of and for the account of a business entity may register to use eServices even without a qualified certificate by completing an online application for the use of eServices.
