 Data Date: 2019


Very basic company information is available online. The tax authority allows a free search of company name, but it only offers the company name, registration number, commercial name, and status. The Commercial Register, related to the Chamber of Commerce and Production of Santo Domingo requires, in addition to choosing the region, to include the company registry number and a validation number (example of validation number: E3535116-3B3D-453A-B690-1B4B4D82151E). This means it is not possible to search for companies, unless the user already has all the relevant company information.
