Identifiers must be:

  • Unique to a single company and not shared in different regions of the same country
  • Recognised as an approved identifier within that country

Identifiers can be acquired from a country's business registrar, a 3rd party data provider or by using our Get Company Ids in combination with Search Company by Name.

Below is an example list of approved countries with country code and identifier types you can search by.
