A corporation, usually for profit. Does not distinguish between private and public companies, and can also be used to model more specific constructs like trusts and funds. Companies are assets, so they can be owned by other legal entities.

Abstract schemata are used for inheritance only and shouldn’t be used directly.



Entities using a generated schema shouldn’t be created directly by users.



Entities using a matchable schema can be used for matching and cross-referencing.



Entities using a hidden schema shouldn’t be displayed in user interfaces or created by users.


FollowTheMoney has well-defined semantics for different representations of entities, for example in a network graph or in a timeline.

  • In a network graph, entities should be represented as a vertex.
  • In a timeline, incorporationDate should be used as the temporal start. dissolutionDate should be used as the temporal end.
  • Company entities have no temporal extent, i.e. they are not suitable for representation in a timeline.
