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. Answer to whether the dataset is downloadable at once was changed as only individual entity details can be downloaded at a time. The website does not provide information as to how often the data are updated. The type of license or terms of use are also mentioned nowhere. What format the data are in cannot be known as one needs to sign up and pay in order to download them. The website only provides a .PDF sample file showing how the data look like which appears to be .HTML format ( From this, it appears that the data contain all required characteristics such as company name, address, and registration number, however they are available through a search mask and it is necessary to know the name of the company or the registration number in order to download them.
