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 Corporate Affairs and Intellectual Property Office offers a Limited Internet Search Facility as a free service to the public as a quick reference for the purpose of enabling persons to ascertain whether or not a particular company, business name, charity or society could possibly be registered in our various statutory registers. However, the results, viewed separately for each individual entity and given in .HTML format, only consist of Company Name, ID number, and Date Registered / Incorporated. No Company Address is provided. Furthermore, the database is updated only periodically by a private contractor and accordingly, search results will not give a real-time reflection of all the entries made in the various registers held in the Office. The database will therefore never be a substitute for the official records held in the various statutory registers and the Office does not and cannot guarantee the accuracy or integrity of any of the search results which are obtained from this site and no representations or warranties are made by the Office with respect thereto. Company inquiries can be purchased for a fee of $5.00. It is worth noting that I had to review this entry more than once as the CAIPO website took down their Search feature at some point during the past month, but have now restored it once more. Still, as not all four required characteristics can be found online, the dataset is marked as non-existent.
