Excessive regulatory burdens may hamper business performance and growth.

The indicators on this page measure the potential regulatory and tax burdens in 155 countries. The results are based on surveys of more than 200,000 firms. A database query tool is available to help you better understand the regulatory and tax requirements facing firms across various firm subgroups. You can also generate graphs to compare countries.
