Company Register 15% open


What data is expected?

List of registered (limited liability) companies. The submissions in this data category do not need to include detailed financial data such as balance sheet, etc. Open data from company registers may be used for many ends: e.g. enabling customers and businesses to see with whom they deal, or to see where a company has registered offices. This definition draws on the work of OpenCorporates.

  • Name of company
  • Company address
  • Unique identifier of the company
  • Register available for entire country

How open is the data?

The link provided by the submitter for the Statistical Business Register by "INSTAT Republika e Shqiperise Instituti i Statistikave" ( does not contain any Government Business Registry Data. The .XLS files available contain only basic statistical information that are of no interest. No data containing company names, their unique identifiers, and addresses could be found. Hence, the name of the organisation that collects the data, the link where the data can be found, and the description were replaced with those of the National Business Center where data are available for free through a search mask, so it is necessary to know the name, address, or identification number of an entity in order to find it. The data cannot be downloaded all at once, it is necessary to download a Historical Extract or Simple Extract in .PDF form for a specific entity. How often or when the data were last updated updated is unknown, as is whether the data are openly licensed/in public domain since the links to the Transparency Program's Legislation do not work.
