Comments

Access to the corporate registry is only possible through several private actors who obtained a license from the government to sell access to the A) company register (http://www.justiz.gv.at/web2013/html/default/2c9484852308c2a601240b693e1c0860.de.html) and B) trade register (http://www.bmwfw.gv.at/Unternehmen/Gewerbe/Seiten/ZentralesGewerberegister.aspx). Among these service providers is now also the fully state-owned Wiener Zeitung, the Republic's official gazette, which provides free access on http://firmenmonitor.at. There are several private operators that, like the Wiener Zeitung, offer free access to corporate ownership data, applying an add-supported business model or charge for access to financial corporate data. But none of the free offers provides an official extract of the data, and there appear to be some discrepancies in terms of how current the datasets of various providers are.
