E-government refers to the delivery of government information and services online through the Internet or other digital means (West, 2004), and well-implemented e-government platforms can help to improve the business environment and the creation of new businesses. The present article has as its main goal to measure the impact of change of the index of e-readiness of e-Government (and its sub-indices) on ease of doing business, in the new business rate and the perception of corruption in countries of high, medium and low income, in order to test whether the effects depend on the income level. The study used a panel data (repeated measures), with four points (years 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2014), with three periods of change (2008/2010, 2010/2012 and 2012/2014), with data the following databases: Doing Business Report of the World Bank, the United Nations Survey on e-Government, Corruption Perception Index of Transparency International and World Bank’s Survey on Entrepreneurship. Data were analyzed using Mixed Linear Models procedures with fixed and random effects. The findings indicate that different models should be employed to understand e-government impact depending on the income level of the countries, since they have a very diverse technological and service delivery capacity and different population profiles when compared on digital and Internet use, and even cultural traits. Thus, the findings support the hypothesis that the effects are diverse and depend on the income level. Indications for future research are discussed.
