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?
It's not openly licenced
It's not in an open and machine-readable format
It's not downloadable at once
It's not up-to-date
It's not publicly available
It's not available free of charge
The original submission has been rejected on the basis that not all four required characteristics are published online.
According to the original submitter, the Indonesian company register is the most closed online available company register they've ever seen.
Though full company profiles are available on the Directorate General of Legal Administration (Direktorat Jenderal Administrasi Hukum Umum) website, they are not for free and not openly licensed. More specifically, the names and addresses of companies are available for free in .HTML format, but not their unique identifiers. Names and addresses are available through a search mask so it is necessary to already know the name of an entity in order to find it. In order to access a company's full profile (which one can only assume whether it includes the unique identifier), one needs to select the company of interest, fill in an online form, and buy the information through a pre-paid voucher. Information is then sent via e-mail in .PDF format. The update frequency is not known and the dataset cannot be downloaded at once:
On the Ministry of Commerce - Company Directory Data Center Collection website there is a free list in .HTML format of Company Names, Addresses, and Products, but no Identification numbers are available:
On the Ministry of Industry - Business Directories website there is also a free list in .HTML format of Company Names, Addresses, and Commodity, but no Identification numbers are available:
