The Register for Industrial Companies only accounts for a minority of companies in Uruguay, but is freely downloadable in bulk and available as open data. It is updated monthly.

Previously, it was also possible to download data on Small and Medium Enterprises (which account for the other 80-90% of companies), but the URL currently seems to be down.

However, the data on small and medium enterprises is available in the following Fusion Tables:

This data corresponds to the year 2014.

Reviewer comments

As the data on small and medium enterprises still cannot be accessed, I have filled out the criteria for the industrial companies register, and included information on SME register (plus fusion table links) in the details box.
