Data Services

The German company register (Handelsregister), insolvency register, and Federal Gazette (Bundesanzeiger) offer a treasure trove of company information, but they do not offer API access, and the information is only provided in free text form.

Our Data Services make fully processed company information available for either automatic further processing or for integration into your software, including the complete company register as well as other public sources.

Our Data Services provide structured company information either as data via the Data API, visualizations via the Widget API, as well as via the Quarterly Export Subscription.

An affordable Start-Up Package is available.
