Theoretical and empirical studies in Kosovo and the region show that there are favorable conditions for the existence and growth of corruption and informality. In our country believed that international institutions as EULEX even though they are called upon to help prevent corruption and informal economy, they as well as the local institutions have disappointed the citizens in a very high percentage. Based on data come up to conclusions that the corrosion and informal economy are rising, and that as a result of long transition in all spheres like the social life, the future of perspective, the impact of economic crisis, then the impact of factors as the external support from international institutions factor as integration and captivity. Thus, the motivation to get into the business of informality and corruption are different, but many officials or businessmen on of the key factor considered the legislation, slow action of justice, competition, administrative burdens on business ethics, and professionalism of human resources.
