Commercial register: Extract

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

An extract from the commercial register shows the current legal status of a company. In particular, the extract indicates who can legally represent the company. Various authorities and institutions (trade office, banks, etc.) therefore require an extract from the register. In addition, any interested party can inspect the commercial register or obtain an extract. A distinction must be made between an excerpt and a certified excerpt.

You also have the option of simply inspecting the commercial register.


Who should I contact?

To the competent local court in whose district the company's registered office is located (both when inspecting the commercial register and if you require an extract from the commercial register).

The federal states have set up a register portal for the purpose of providing public information, through which you can retrieve the required information online. Certificates and documents about the company in question that are relevant for the entries in the commercial register can also be retrieved there.
