Company Register 100% 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?

Your submission is valid. Thank you very much for contributing to the Global Open Data Index. The dataset is openly available online and free of charge via the Federal Tax Service website under the Open Data section - Unified Register of small and medium-sized businesses in Zipped .XML format (2.8GB) and downloadable at once. The data are openly licensed and regularly updated. It may be worth noting that the Federal Tax Service also offers a search feature to look for "information on the state registration of legal entities and individual entrepreneurs, peasant (farmer) households" were results include Name of the legal entity, Address (location) of legal entity, BIN, INN, PPC, Date of assignment BIN, winding-up date, and invalidation date in .HTML and .PDF format, however one needs to know the VAT/BIN number of an entity in order to find it and results are behind a captcha:
