Search for information on European companies through the EU portal
Since June 9, 2017, almost all commercial and companies registers in the EU have been linked via the e-Justice portal. Now, you can search for registered information about companies from other EU countries here.
The portal contains official business information on over 20 million European companies in a standardized format. Additional information such as articles of association, annual accounts, annual returns, balances, and income statements are also available from different countries.
