What data is expected?

A list of registered companies and key data about each company. 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
  • Physical company location
  • Unique identifier per company
  • Company owner
  • Date of registration (and dissolution)
  • Financial statements per company, per year
  • Register available for entire country
  • None of the above

How open is the data?

Question Answer Comment
Available free of charge No
Publicly available No
Openly licenced No
Up-to-date No
In an open and machine-readable format
Digital data No
Print data No According to the original researcher paper-based records are available. But we were unable to verify if it is possible for the public to see these records. Unfortunately a verbal statement from a government official does not suffice to verify if it is possible to get paper-based information.
Collected by government Yes
findable_steps I talked to someone who has worked with the Guichet unique, in charge of creating companies
characteristics None of the above
Controlled access No
Collector name National Agency for the Promotion of Investments The National Agency for the Promotion of Investments takes care of the formation of businesses. The Guichet Unique de Création d’entreprise seems to be the official body to register companies. It provides a portal for applicants to track the status of their company registration: http://e-guce.guichetunique.cd/e-guce/ It also announces successful registrations: “Dans le souci de rapprocher les usagers des services du Guichet Unique de Création d’Entreprise, la Direction Générale informe le public de l’ouverture dès le lundi 29 mai 2017 de son antenne de Matete située au bâtiment du Tribunal de Commerce de matete (1ère rue Limete industriel, en face de Saint-Raphaël). Yet it is not possible to see more information about an individual registration. The original researcher referred his assessment to the DGRAD which seems to be the tax agency where applicants require a tax number, but not where they register the formation of a company.
Printed copies of the data are available at the offices of DGRAD at both provincial and national level.

The original researcher referred his assessment to DGRAD: http://dgrad.afrikblog.com/. DGRAD seems to be the tax agency where applicants request a tax number, but not where they register the formation of a company. It could not be verified whether printed copies of the data are available at the offices of DGRAD and whether everyone gets access to these copies and request these copies.
