Company Search

The public access to the CRO's 'LIVE' databases provided by this site is a means by which the public can search for and view data held by the CRO on companies registered in the State.
Customers can also request documents and reports to be returned to them by email.

Receipt for your Request

When your request has been successfully processed, a confirmation receipt will be returned. This confirmation includes a receipt number which can be used in any queries to the CRO about such requests.

Paying for Documents / Reports

Before the CRO will process requests for documents it is firstly necessary to choose the means by which these documents will be returned and secondly the method of payment. Payment can be made from a customer account by entering an account ID and PIN or by credit/laser card. A customer reference is taken also to allow the customer to track his/her requests. Entering all this information will ensure that requests are processed. To facilitate the implementation of PSD2, a European law came into force to make it more secure for consumers to make electronic payments online. As a result, CRO had to make changes to our payment page, by adding 6 new fields. We are aware that some Core users have been having difficulties with these new fields and are encountering errors when trying to pay online. Please ensure that you fill in details in all 6 fields (Address 1, Address 2, City, Postcode, Country and Phone Number) to avoid errors and proceed with payment. The inputting of some special characters into the fields will cause errors and prevent the credit card entry screen from loading, for instance the phone number field does not accept brackets “(“ “)”. Any non-alphabetic/non-numeric characters apart from quotes and hyphens for the addresses should be avoided.
