Businesses, trades and more

For more than 150 years Compass-Verlag has  provided national and international businesses and institutions with up-to-date and correct business data. Valid data from the Business Register and other sources give you a 360° perspective of businesses and persons: balance sheet data, beneficial owners, documents from the Business Register and much more.


The Wirtschafts-Compass provides insights into businesses and persons and their backgrounds as a valuable basis for your compliance checks. Compliance screening and information about politically exposed persons or sanction lists offer a swift decision guidance for current and future business relationships.

Real estate

The Compass land register in Wirtschafts-Compass takes you straight to the Land Register Database of the Republic of Austria. You can quickly and easily get a Land Register excerpt of a property or plot of land. Other documents from the Land Register, such as purchase agreements, are also available online. Property valuations are available as an additional service.


The online service will inform you about the most recent changes pursuant to commercial law in the Business Register, the Land Register and about entries in the Database of Official Publications by email or in the form of a data import. Changes may also be retrieved from the Wirtschafts-Compass archive at any time. You can easily keep track of all new developments.


The Wirtschafts-Compass API ("Business-Compass API") allows fully automated searches for information about Austrian businesses, traders, professionals, associations and data on insolvencies or foundations of new businesses. By means of the API, data from Wirtschafts-Compass will be integrated directly into your internal ERP and CRM systems as well as your KYC checks.
