The Corporate Affairs and Intellectual Property office allows the public to perform a "Company Inquiry" for a fee of $5, though there is no information given about what data the inquiry would return or its format.

The office makes available a very limited free internet search facility, which allows the user to search for or browse through the names of registered companies and view registration numbers and dates. However, the database is not regularly updated and is not meant to be used as a substitute for a paid search of the official records.

Reviewer comments

The link given in the original submission didn't work, so I performed a search of what was available on the website and filled in the criteria accordingly.
