German Company Data Overview
The German Company Data API lets you obtain detailed data about German companies currently or previously listed in the German Handelsregister. You can use this information to enrich your Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system or other B2B systems you have in use. A matching with your own data is possible through the powerful lookup mechanism. The API provides you with address and contact data, social media links, legal information (such as the identifiers in other systems, legal form, the founding date and the capital), and industry and size information (approximate revenue and number of employees). If you want to search and filter on the index of all German companies, check out our German Company Search API.

More Details


The German Company Data API provides detailed information about all companies listed in the German Handelsregister. With that data you can greatly enhance the value proposition of your CRM / MAS / ERP systems. Data quality and maintenance issues will be reduced to a minimum and new entries can be enriched automatically. This API provides the following information:

  • Basic company information, such as address, phone number, email, and website
  • Purpose, industry, and size of the company
  • Legal information, such as Handelsregister information, legal form, founding date, and share capital
  • Links to various social media profiles
    Below you see the output this API produces for our company Implisense:

There are two endpoints to obtain this information. The first one is the GET /companies/{id}/data-endpoint. If you know the Implisense ID of the company you are interested in, this is the preferred method. E. g., for Implisense you can make a request GET /companies/DEVFCLQFW054/data and produce the above result. Actually, you can also perform the request GET /companies/implisense/data or even GET /companies/[email protected]/data, but there is a risk associated with it for non-unique company names.
If you don't know the ID the second method is to use the POST /companies/data-endpoint and provide a lookup request with it. That request is the same as for our free German Company Lookup and Activity Check API. You can specify any number of the listed attributes and we will try our best to return the correct company.

 "name": "Implisense GmbH",
 "street": "Spiekermannstraße 31a",
 "zip": "13189",
 "city": "Berlin",
 "email": "[email protected]",
 "url": "implisense.com",
 "hrCourt": "Berlin (Charlottenburg)",
 "hrType": "HRB",
 "hrNumber": "153069",
 "ebid": "2501100133998",
 "lei": "7LTWFZYICNSX8D621K86",
 "query": "Implisense Berlin",
 "active": true

The query field is special in that you can provide all known attribute values in it, and we will make our best guess. If you want a full-blown search engine (e. g., search for product names, technologies, certifications) with filtering for locations, industries, and company size, you can ideally combine this API with our freemium German Company Search API.

implisen.se Permalink & Lookup

With the help of our public lookup you can permanently qualify your incoming requests free of charge. It doesn't matter whether you are requesting a company name or an email address; our algorithms match the best company we can find for your request.
This service works without any prerequisites. You don't need an account and don't have to register anywhere! All you need to do is enter the following URL in your web browser (e.g. Chrome, Firefox, Safari or Edge):
Replace QUERY with your query. This can be a company name or an email address you want to qualify. If we are unable to resolve your request, you will be redirected to our Companies and Markets research platform. In general, we do not resolve private e-mail addresses (e.g., from gmail.com or web.de). Try it out with one of our examples:
https://implisen.se/[email protected]
At the same time implisen.se acts as a permalink, because it can also be called with the Implisense-ID of a company. This gives you an unchangeable short link that is ideal for sharing with others. Like this one, for example:
The same service works also on the command line with the curl-command and gives you the top hit free of charge in JSON format. For example:
curl -s -X GET 'https://implisen.se/BMW'
If you have the jq-tool installed, you can also get a pretty printed version of the above or process the result further:
curl -s -X GET 'https://implisen.se/BMW' | jq '.'
curl -s -X GET 'https://implisen.se/BMW' | jq -r '.companies[0].name'
