The Kbis extract: how exactly do I get it?

Kbis extract

The Kbis extract is one of the most important documents when creating a company in France. Indeed, it essentially functions as the ID card of your company, being proof of the registration of your business.

Why do I need it?

There are a lot of situations in which you will be asked to present your Kbis. For example, it’s needed to finish creating a business bank account, or asking for government subsidies to create your company.

How do I obtain the Kbis extract of my company?

Until the creator of the company has asked for the Kbis, no one else can obtain it.

However, once that’s done, anyone can get the Kbis extract of the company. Indeed, the pieces of information on it aren’t private, so it doesn’t matter if a third party gets access to it.
This also means that getting it is very simple; all you need to do is ask for it on the infogreffe website. Just type in the name or SIRET number of the company, and you’ll get it!

Asking for the Kbis does have a cost, though. But since it’s less than 5 euros, it’s a pretty negligible fee.
