Company Register 0% 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 original submission was rejected because company addresses were not consistently provided. As stated by the original submitter, Riyadh Al-Balushi, the Ministry of Commerce and Industry provides a search engine on the InvestEasy - Government One Stop Shop Website for Investment to find the details of all registered companies. The search engine can be used in Arabic and English. Commercial Registration number, Name (in Arabic and English), Legal form, and CR Status are available at a glance, and once the "view" option is chosen, the Places of Activities (Business Area, Place of Activity code, PoA activities, Postal Code, PO Box, Building number, Area Number, Street, e-mail and phone numbers [where applicable]) should be available. However, the actual address, mainly the street names and numbers, are not consistently provided. Hence, not all four required characteristics could be found online. The data available are in .HTML format, free of charge, but cannot be downloaded in bulk and are behind a search mask.
