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 company addresses were not available online. The Portal da Justiça website offers a Publication Search feature where one can search entities for free by entering their name or registration identification number and a captcha code. Results provide Date, NIF/NIPC number, Entity name, Municipality, and Activity in .HTML format, but not full company address. Selecting the "Content" option provides no results. Data cannot be downloaded at once, and as the original submitter, Tiago Vieira, pointed out, since you can only search one company at the time, there is no evidence that the data is being updated. Also, there are no indications for it being openly licensed or in public domain on the website.
