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

    Reviewer comments

    The submitter provided a link for the Companies Registration Office (Bolagsverket) website which offers a search feature to find company information by company name or registration number. However, the results provide only the company name and identification number, and no address. One needs to pay a fee in order to download filings which may contain further information. Needless to say, the data are not openly licensed: http://www.bolagsverket.se/en/us/about/e-services/foretagsfakta I have been able to find company data free of charge on the Financial Supervisory Authority website through their Company register search feature. Again, one needs to know the name or number of an entity in order to find it. Results include Name, Corporate identification number and once selected the company name, Address, Telephone, Category, and FI identification number are also given in .HTML format. While data cannot be downloaded in bulk, according to the website they are regularly updated, and may be used free of charge (though you are asked to state the source, Financial Supervisory Authority and date). Financial Supervisory Authority's data is available at no charge and may be freely processed and re-used without special permission or agreements. http://www.fi.se/en/our-registers/company-register/
