Reading Annual Financial Reports from Bovespa's DFP, FRE and FCA System

Reads annual financial reports including assets, liabilities, dividends history, stockholder composition and much more from Bovespa's DFP, FRE and FCA systems <>. These are web based interfaces for all financial reports of companies traded at Bovespa. The package is specially designed for large scale data importation, keeping a tabular (long) structure for easier processing.

Package GetDFPData provides a R interface to all financial statements and companies information available in B3's website. It not only downloads the data but also organizes it in a tabular format and allows the use of inflation indexes. Users can select companies and a time period to download all available data. Several information about current companies, such as sector and available quarters are also at reach. The main purpose of the package is to make it easy to access financial statements in large scale research, facilitating the reproducibility of corporate finance studies.


The package is (NOT YET) available in CRAN (release version) and in Github (development version). You can install any of those with the following code:
