Search business information in CVR.
There is only one search box in CVR. You can search on CVR number, name of business, city, street name, person, P-number, etc.
How to do a search
You can search for a specific business by typing the following in the search box in CVR:
- the name of the business
- the CVR number
- the P number
- names of individuals
How to do an advanced search
The search engine will not automatically search for AA and Å as the same letter. It will therefore make a difference whether you search e.g. for 'Århus apotek' or 'Aarhus apotek'. We recommend that you try both combinations when searching for names that can be spelled with either AA or Å.
An example: Aarhus apotek or Århus apotek
Expand your search
If you are not familiar with the correct or full name of the business, you can insert an asterisk (*) at the beginning, middle or end of your search words. This will then expand your search. An example: Dansk super*, Søren *ristensen, Søren Krist*sen
Limit your search
If you want to limit your search you can put quotation marks (” ”) around your search words. This will limit your search. An example: ”Asger Aamund”.
By using the minus sign (-) in front of a word, you can exclude the word from your search. An example: Københavns kommune –idrætsanlæg
Avoid natural language
The search engine does not understand natural language (such as questions), so you should search for specific businesses, CVR numbers or P-numbers.
Limit your search with filters
To the right, under the search box on the front page of CVR, you can click on 'Filter'. This offers you a number of options:
Options for limiting your search
You can limit your search by business type, business status, number of employees, advertising protection, business markers, municipality, region and role/function (when searching for an individual).
You can choose to further limit your search with multiple simultaneous filters.
You can also choose not to search for anything in specific and just filter by for example 'business type' and 'number of employees'. This will allow you to see a list of all companies og a specific type with a specific number of employees.
Active and inactive fields
If you have performed a search and the title on the scrollbar is grey, it is because your search has yielded no results. When the titles are black, they are active.
