Kruispunt: The Crossroads Bank for Enterprises (CBE) is a Belgian federal institution (in French: Banque-Carrefour des Entreprises) within the federal public service FPS Economy. The Crossroads Bank manages the official database of the Belgian government of all natural persons who carry out an economic activity, and of legal persons that are active or not economically active in Belgium (companies, non-profit associations (non-profit organisations), associations of co-owners (VMEs) and so forth). The term enterprise must therefore be interpreted here in a very broad sense.
