Inspect the commercial register


The joint register portal of the federal states is available on the Internet for inspection of the commercial register. There you can search for registered companies by entering keywords. If you register, the contents of the register can also be accessed online as a PDF document (subject to a fee).

In addition, you can still view the commercial register during business hours at the registry court (free of charge) and have a printout or copy made there (subject to a fee).
