Technical disturbances

When retrieving register information, please note that you must add DK documents individually to the shopping basket and download them. It is currently not technically possible to retrieve a complete DK tree.

When retrieving register information, the display of the document trees (DK) may be disturbed in individual cases. If necessary, please reload the page or carry out the search again.

New type of register

Since 1 January 2024, the Corporation register (GsR), in which information on registered civil law partnerships (eGbR) is recorded, is also accessible via the Company register. You can retrieve the corresponding entries and register documents as soon as and insofar as entries have been made there using the familiar search procedures in the Company register.

Beware of unfair providers

The Federal Gazette publishing house warns of offers and notifications regarding register entries for companies in the Company Register and in association with publications in the Federal Gazette.

If you receive payment requests for retrievals of company data via the Business Register Interconnection System (BRIS), the sender of which is (supposedly) the European Commission or the European Justice Portal, this is a case of fraud.

Further information and a current list of providers of these ‘services’ that are known to us at this time can be found in the Federal Gazette (Bundesanzeiger) under „How it works – Data and statistics“.
