ACRA has made available real-time business information via API services on our API Mall for businesses and software developers to create innovative digital solutions that suit their business needs.
Access to a Wealth of Business Information
As the national corporate registry, ACRA collects vast amounts of business data from close to half a million corporate entities that are registered with ACRA and file key corporate information with ACRA as required by law.
These Application Programming Interface (APIs) services are part of ACRA’s on-going efforts to better meet the needs of the business community.
Possible business applications include populating information on business entities for online application forms; or integrating business information to their systems to enable a seamless process flow.
