Prior to commencing business relations with a new foreign partner, it is important to check their reliability, their financial solvency as well as the seriousness of their intentions. Unfortunately, foreign exporters still occasionally fall for imposters with fictitious companies due to lack of proper background checks. Official information and extracts from the commercial register come at a small cost, however they significantly reduce the risks of foreign business relations.
Schmidt & Schmidt offers extracts on legal entities, partnerships and individual entrepreneurs. Additionally, we provide annual financial statements and balance sheets for a number of legal entities. We will send you an extract from the commercial register on your business partner as a PDF-file via e-mail, together with a translation, should you request one. This allows you to confirm your partner's solvency before making any deals. We can also have the files authenticated with an apostille and sent to you by mail.
