Company Register 45% open


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

Comment of researcher: The EDBM has changed the content ( and even the format ) of their data. The format of their website (and values per company) you see now was only since January 2018 available. I spent my time scrapping their website the whole year 2017, and at that time, they gave company location for some company created in 2016 ( not for 2015) ( I still have those data in my computer), now they only make it available at their discretion.
