Data Location


Submitters comments: There is a names register online - but this does not provide additional information such as address etc.

Reviewers comments: It appears that Botswana does not use company registration numbers, but only register businesses by their name ( - there is also a search form: However they clearly register companies and must have an internal database or organized register. This register is seemingly not available anywhere online, so I'm amending the submission accordingly and marking this in existence, but not available to the public.

Reviewer comments
