The company information provided on the European e-Justice Portal through the Business Register Interconnection System (BRIS) is gathered in real time from the business registers of the Member States, without any fees for companies. If you receive a suspicious letter coming from BRIS, the European e-Justice Portal or the Commission, please contact us immediately on Never pay any money to the sender.

How it works

To search for a company:

  • Search by company number and/or registration number.
  • You’ll see a list of results matching your search with basic company information.
  • You can then ask to see more details about a company.
  • The system will show you a list of available information filed by the company with the national business register.
    For example:
    • articles of association
    • annual accounts
    • capital subscribed
    • the company’s legal representatives.
  • Select the document(s) you want and add them to your basket.
  • Check out when you’ve selected the documents you need.

Please note: At the moment you can only request information that the national registers provide free of charge. For documents against payment, the prices displayed on our portal are provided by the national registers and are only indicative and subject to change. To request any of those documents, please go to the national register’s website, where the final price will be specified.
