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 Zambian Ministry of Commerce, Trade and Industry website doesn't seem to offer any company data online: Visiting the Zambia Revenue Authority website and choosing "Other e-Services" from the left column, and then "Taxpayer Search", one can search entities by "Tax Payer Name" (i.e. Company Name). The results are given in .HTML however they can be exported to .XLS. They include Old TPIN No, Tax Payer Name, TPIN, Registration Date, Effective Cancellation Date, Status, and Tax Payer Type but no Company Address is given. Therefore, as not all required characteristics can be found online, the dataset is marked as non-existent:
