The Corporate Information System-SIREM Report publishes information reported by companies that are subject to monitoring, control and inspection by the Superintendency of Corporations of the State.
To download datasets, navigate to "Estados financieros" and then "Todas las sociedades". Datasets can be downloaded on a year by year basis, from 2004 to 2013. No datasets more recent than 2013 are available.
The default format of data files is TXT, but instructions for opening the files in Excel are outlined in this document (language: Spanish): http://sirem.supersociedades.gov.co/Sirem2/Datos/GuiaExcel.pdf
It is also possible to obtain limited company data by inputting a search term here: http://www.rues.org.co/RUES_Web/Consultas but not to browse or access data by any other means. Address details of companies are also not held.
I am happy to let this replace the former submission, even though it is not timely. Instructions for finding the datasets have been added in English.
