The Ministry of Economy, Development and Tourism has a facility for checking whether company names are registered, which doubles as a search engine of sorts for registered companies and their ID numbers: http://www.empresaen1dia.cl/res.verificamarcasmp.aspx However, there is no evidence of more detailed company data being available.
There is also an unofficial online directory of Chilean companies current to 2012, provided by the non-profit SOFOFA, which can be freely browsed. http://www.sofofa.cl/Net/DirectorioIndustrial/Consulta/WebForms/Buscar.aspx
I've added details of an official government company name search tool by the Ministry of Economy, Development and Tourism, which would tend to indicate that the Ministry holds other more detailed information, but there is no direct evidence of it.
