  • What does it contain? The main sources of the data include the deposit of accounts with the Register of Companies.
  • How to do a search in SABI. You can search directly for a specific company by its name, tax code or identification number (BvD ID) or obtain data for several companies in the form of a list. You can combine about 20 search filters, such as the company's location, operating income, number of workers, etc. The list of filters will appear at the bottom of the home page as you select the criteria, in the Estrategia de búsqueda [Search strategy] field.

For example, you can try to search for companies that work in a particular area by clicking on the Actividad [Activity] option, followed by Clasificaciones actividades [Activity categories] and select one (the National Classification of Economic Activities 2009 is shown by default).

  • How to search for companies and customize the list. You will be shown a series of default fields and, in the side menu, you can click on Formato de lista / Nuevo formato [List format / New format] to add extra fields (contact information, website, executive management, etc.).
  • How to export the data. The university as a whole is subject to a weekly download limit on the platform, and we recommend you only download the data you need for this reason. Downloads can be in Excel, Word, Adobe Acrobat PDF or Rich Text Format.
