Jurisdiction Overview

475 *LO Online: Are companies' legal owners available on a public online record (up to 10 €/US$/GBP)? No, information on legal owners is not always available online (up to 10 EUR/GBP/USD).
 Data Date: 2019


Access to the online register is free of charge. While legal ownership is available for limited liability companies, there is no ownership information for some joint stock companies. After many random searches, most joint stock companies offer only the identity of management and supervisory board, but not of shareholders (except for simplified joint stock companies). Only public joint stock companies may be listed (GF 2014: 24), but it is not possible to search in the online register by distinguishing between public and private joint stock companies. Therefore, we assume that joint stock companies that do not have shareholder information include both private and public joint stock companies.
