Company Register 45% open

Algeria

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 Yes
Downloadable No Each company entry can be downloaded separately
Publicly available Yes
Openly licenced No No licence terms found
Up-to-date Yes The website indicates the date of updating. Some entries have been updated in April 2018, others in 2017.) Caveat: I see a date of updating but no registration date of companies. So it is not possible to verify if the register actually holds latest company entries.

characteristics Name of company, Physical company location, Unique identifier per company El Mouchir is manually updated and includes even national agencies and others. Data is not very accurate but El Mouchir is the only data source available. Unique identifiers are provided for some companies, see herehttp://elmouchir.caci.dz/seaal-socit-des-eaux-et-de-lassainissement-dalger-1146.html register collects contact names, but not in a standardised way, and not requiring to identify owners. Ownership is not always available below examples where you can find the owner (company legal form is Ets or SARL) It seems that the total amount of companies (including all legal forms, not only SARLs (limit liability companies) amounts to roughly 170k. SARLs newly created in 2016 amounted to 7k.If we assume that El Mouchir reflects 10% of all companies, I would argue the register is not available for the country.
