Company Register 0% open

Botswana

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

There supposedly is an online database of company names under the responsibility of the Ministry of Trade and Industry, Republic of Botswana, that can be accessed to prevent duplicates, subject to verification by the Registrar of Companies and Intellectual Property (http://www.mtinamesearch.gov.bw/search/). Data are supposedly available through a search mask so it is necessary to know the name of an entity in order to find it. However, the website does not return any results.
