Comments

Enterprise register's data is published in a structured form and updated daily. Benefits from timely updates: organisations requiring Enterprise register statistics can just grab the file instead of filing official requests, thus saving time and effort.

Files include basic information about enterprises but lack more detailed information. Enterprise register sells access to detailed information to commercial companies for a considerable fee (in tens of thousands EUR) which can resell this information to everyone else.

This is one of the best open data examples in Latvia, but it is difficult to find - you have to know the URL of the open data server or the path to take through register's website in order to find a link to the open data server.

Update 2015: situation has not changed since 2014 and the answers are the same (URL valid, dataset updated regularly).
