    Your submission is valid. Thank you very much for contributing to the Global Open Data Index. The Companies Office hosts the register of companies however data can only be viewed by entering the name of the company on the website. From there a Company number, name, director, address and other details can be viewed. One can conduct a Company Search on the Companies Office of Jamaica website where data are available for free in .HTML format, but through a search mask so one needs to know an entity's name or registration number in order to find it. Data include registration number, entity name, director/ proprietor/ shareholder/ company secretary, status, entity type. and when registered/ incorporated. Data cannot be downloaded at once and update frequency is not specified. https://www.orcjamaica.com/CompanySearch.aspx?cId1=1bb41e18-5b35-4265-96b1-f93acd97f644
