Company Register 15% open

Trinidad and Tobago

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?

Additional information found on the RGD site "All documents filed at the Companies Registry may be searched by members of the public. Registration number of business name or company must be produced when making request. Identification Card, Driver's Permit or Passport must be produced. Search fee: $20.00 per company file/document." This suggest that the data carries a fee for access and requires in person application

The submitter was under the impression that data were not available online free of charge and without providing a type of identification. Indeed, the cost of downloading a copy of a file is $20.00 TTD (files are in PDF format). However, data are available via the Companies Registry Online Search Facility where one needs to know the name of an entity in order to find it. Results include company name, number, address, date of incorporation, name suffix, and status in .HTML format. Results cannot be downloaded in bulk, and update frequency of the data is unknown.
