This might be a stupid thought, but: all the data listed above seems to be rather basic data that's actually published* by the Estonian business registry and the Tax and Customs Board.

* published:

  • the business registry has the company data, and it can be manually looked up on the website, but there's no (public) API. (I think?) machine-readable data can be purchased from them. Company annual reports (PDF files) can be purchased by anyone at €2 per report.

  • The tax board publishes quarterly (and monthly?) Excel files with (for example) employee count & revenue numbers.

I don't really understand why access to this de facto public data is restricted like this. (@andreskytt maybe you have some interesting insight here?)

The data will be given as actualised at the moment or will it be a set of several years, with a history of changes?

The business registry indeed does not have a public API. They do have x-road APIs and do data extracts but that is, unfortunately, a paid service. Most of the data requested can be found here Please comment, what exactly is missing from this dataset as it contains all organisations employing people and paying taxes.
