Apply for simple or extended business register information Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.
The business register contains the displayed data of all commercial enterprises in the respective municipality. Public and non-public authorities and private individuals may obtain information from the trade register. The simple business register information includes the name of the establishment, the activity carried out and the business address. These basic data of traders are generally available. It is not necessary for traders to consent to the disclosure of this data. The extended trade information is only issued if a legal interest is proven. For example, there is a legal interest when the applicant wishes to assert legal claims, e.B. to enforce claims.
In the case of extended business register information, you must also attach documents to prove the legal interest (debt securities, contract copies, invoices).
The business register is not a public register (such as .B. the register of trade, cooperatives or associations). Third parties therefore have no legal right to the data being notified. It is at the discretion of the authority to provide the information.
