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.

La Cámara de Comercio y Producción de Santo Domingo no tiene esa información accesible en su página web. Solo dicen ofrecer la oportunidad de buscar en su web las empresas registradas, por nombre. Pero el servicio no está disponible http://www.camarasantodomingo.do/red-empresarial/busqueda/.
According to the submitter, the Chamber of Commerce and Production of Santo Domingo does not have that information accessible on its website. They only claim to offer the opportunity to search registered companies by name. But the service is not available: http://www.camarasantodomingo.do/red-empresarial/busqueda/ However, I was able to find information online for free on the National Office of Industrial Property (ONAPI) website: http://onapi.gob.do/busqueda-consulta.html Data are available through a search mask and it is necessary to know the name of an entity in order to find it. They include Company Number, State, Expedition, Holder, Manager, Address, Expiration date, and Activity. I also found access to data for free through a search mask on the Generate Directorate of Internal Revenue (DGII) website: http://www.dgii.gov.do/servicios/consultas/Paginas/RNC.aspx But these only include National Taxpayer Registry (RNC) number, Business Name, Category, Payment Regime, and Status. In both cases data are available in .HTML format and cannot be downloaded at once. How often or when they were last updated is also unknown.
