The constant publishing of large volumes of financial information by various business sector organizations through its financial statements is a fact that must be exploited by using semantic technologies. This paper describes the use of Linked Data to generate a financial dataset that is part of the ongoing work of the FLORA (Financial Linked Open Data Reasoning and Management for Web Science) project. Furthermore, the authors describe a process to discover other relevant links within the LOD cloud which can be related to FLORA dataset in order to provide a financial knowledgebase, which might be useful for: data analysis to support decision making, generating predictions or performing own financial discoveries to mention a few.
