What data is expected?

List of registered (limited liability) companies. The submissions in this data category does not need to include detailed financial data such as balance sheet etc. To satisfy this category, the following minimum criteria must be met:

  • Name of company
  • Unique identifier of the company
  • Company address
  • Updated at least once a month

What data is available

  •   Openly licensed? No (No URL given)
  •   Is the data available for free? No
  •   Is the data machine readable? Yes (XML, WSDL)
  •   Available in bulk? Yes
  •   Is the data provided on a timely and up to date basis? Yes
  •   Publicly available? No published by Агенция по вписванията (Registration Agency, under the auspices of the Ministry of Justice))
  •   Is data in digital form? Yes
  •   Is the data available online? Yes (Here)
  •   Does the data exist? Yes


The company database can be searched online, but queries are restricted to single entities and captcha. Obtaining the full database costs about 50 EUR. There are still some legal aspects of the bulk download (mostly relating to personal data protection) that are still unclear. Therefore the bulk download and subscription for new users is in effect blocked by the personal data protection agency.

Reviewer comments

I have marked the dataset as not publicly available based on the restrictions to obtaining it.
