Corporate records worldwide

Investigative Dashboard’s Worldwide Company Data is probably the most comprehensive listing of  websites and databases where information on companies in more than 150 jurisdictions  can be found. The Dashboard is a project of  the  nonprofit Overseas Crime and Corruption Reporting Project based in Sarajevo, the International Center for Journalists in the U.S. and the Forum for African Investigative Reporters..

Open Corporates calls itself “The Open Database of the Corporate World.” It contains information scraped from online corporate registers in more than 50 jurisdictions, including offshore havens like Panama and Bermuda. The site allows searches by company name, country, director name and other keywords. So far it has records of more than 400 million companies worldwide.

The Corporate Intelligence Project  has links to corporate registries in 50 states of the U.S. and 65 countries around the world. It also enables searches for U.S. government watch lists and regulatory agencies.

The UK Companies house has a useful Links Page. At the bottom of that page is a list of links to selected worldwide registers.

Rhodes-Blake Associates’ Official Company Registers has a list of corporate registers worldwide. The site provides links and explanations on what the registers contain, but is not as comprehensive as the Investigative Dashboard’s list. RBA is a private company that provides training on the use of technology to manage information.

The website of Commercial Register Office of the  Canton of St. Gallen in Switzerland has a page called Company Registration around the World that links to corporate registers around the world. The list is not comprehensive but is particularly good on Europe.
