Company Register 0% open

Kenya

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

Your submission is valid. Thank you very much for contributing to the Global Open Data Index. The Kenya State Law Office - Registrar General website does not offer any data on Companies http://www.statelaw.go.ke/registrar-general-division/ According to the submitter, one has to be a citizen or resident to request access to data, but I was unable to find any indication that one can actually request access. The Registration of Business Names and Companies page that, although unlikely, might offer some more information on companies, appears to be down: http://www.attorney-general.go.ke/index.php/company-forms Hence, after going through the website responsible for collecting the data, I conclude that the dataset is not available online.
