Trade and Companies Register
Know us better
Infogreffe provides distribution of legal and economic information on business companies on behalf of all of the Registries of all French commercial courts.
As an extension of the public services provided by court registrars, Infogreffe's mission is to facilitate access to its services and to dematerialise all the principal procedures and dealings with registrars. The information provided has legal validity.
Since its establishment in 1986, Infogreffe G.I.E has made available to the public data collected by each of the 134 clerks of the Commercial Courts. Its role is to simplify things for company directors by means of Internet access to Registry information.
Through the infogreffe.fr website, French Commercial Court clerks distribute the Register to more than 3.2 million French companies.
The data can be accessed on various types of media:
the Infogreffe automatic vocal server (0 891 01 11 11) (free of charge from a landline subject to your operator's charges).
The registry contains all the information concerning traders and companies: whether by moral or physical persons, exercising a commercial type activity legally requires registration with the Trade and Companies Register (RCS). The Register is maintained locally by the Commercial Court Registries.
The RCS Registry information is public; it can be accessed by means of copies, Kbis (company registration certificates) extracts, and certificates, but also via the Web through the Infogreffe services.
Various documents relating to companies, including annual reports and official proceedings (Kbis documents, statutes, inscriptions of privileges etc) are offered to the public; pricing is set by law. The service is provided in French and in English.
