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 as not all four required characteristics can be found online. There is a Business Name Search feature on the Department of Trade and Industry - Philippine Business Registry website where one can search for an entity free of charge as long as they know the company's name, however the results include only Business Name and Status in .HTML format. No unique identifiers are given and although there is a column for Business Location, the address is not provided for all entities. Data cannot be downloaded in bulk and their update frequency is not known.
