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 not all four required characteristics could be found online. According to the original submitter, Nouman Nazim, a list of registered companies that however did not include the companies' unique identifiers was available free of charge without the need to register or request access to the data in .HTML format on the Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan website. Yet, the link provided directs to a page that does not contain any information: I was able to find a search feature provided by the Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan but not only does one have to know the name of an entity in order to find it, the results also do not include companies' addresses, only Company Name, Status, CRO, Registration number, Registration Date, and Form A/B Made Upto Date:
