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. In addition to data from registers, information about foreign branches and mergers between companies across national borders can also be exchanged.

According to Directive 2012/17/EU, the e-Justice portal's register should cover all EU countries, Iceland, Lichtenstein, and Norway. However, it is not yet possible to find all EU countries on the e-Justice portal, but more and more are being added.
