About the information made available
The application FILING archive the references of the annual accounts and consolidated annual accounts filed during the last five calendar years and the current calendar year.
The identification data of the legal person, such as name, address, legal form and legal status are made available by the National Bank as additional information and are taken from the Crossroads Bank for Enterprises (CBE), managed by the Federal Public Service Economy. The National Bank simply copies these data, which it considers to be authentic and recommends you to check the data in general and the legal status in particular at an independant source before making a decision based on these data. Furthermore, the data contained in the CBE can be referred to and controlled directly through the 'Public Search'-function available on the on the website of the CBE.
If inaccurate data have been entered in the CBE, the very legal person concerned in principle has to inform the CBE thereof, insofar as all legal obligations as to the publication of identification data have been complied with. The procedure is set forth on the above mentioned website of the CBE.
The relevant legal persons are responsible for the contents of the documents they have lodged with the National Bank. These documents are indeed being made available by the NBB without any change, on the understanding that the NBB mentions some data in the reserved area at the top of the first page of each document and that annual accounts submitted as structured data files are turned into a PDF file by the NBB.
When annual accounts which have to be compiled according to one of the models provided by the NBB, have been filed electronically in the form of a structured data file, the redundant sections of the model are not included in the copy made available by the NBB. Moreover, the amounts which have been expressed in euro in two decimals pursuant to the applicable regulations, are rounded off by the NBB in euro without any decimals.
Should a legal person notice that what he has filed does not correspond to what should have been filed, he can carry out a 'Correction', which consequently will be made available as such by the NBB.
A register of all corporate acts published as of 1983 in the Annexes to the Moniteur belge can be consulted on the website of the FPS Justice. In addition, recent corporate acts can be visualised on-line.
