Following the request to access a full copy of the national Company Register database in 32 European countries, Access Info Europe shows in this infographics the cost for accessing each individual company record and the entire database.

Out of the 29 countries considered, 9 countries give access to individual company records for free: Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Hungary, Montenegro, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland, and Ukraine.

The remaining 21 countries ask a charge that can be different from country to country: Serbia asks 0,5 Euro for the access to a single record while Russia asks the prohibitive amount of 757,86 Euro for each single record.

This initiative is part of the campaign Accessing Company Registers   , promoted by Access Info Europe in cooperation with the Organised Crime and Corruption Reporting Project.
