Extracts from the European Business Register

For those who would like to minimise risks when setting up foreign trade contracts or investing in companies in Europe, extracts from a commercial register are a first step towards obtaining reliable and comprehensive information about a business partner or client.

An extract from the European Business Register (EBR), as well as accounting data, gives you a unique opportunity to get important information about financial solvency and condition of your business partners. With the help of Schmidt & Schmidt, you can significantly reduce the risks associated with the possible insolvency of your customers and business partners and quickly recognize possible fraudsters trying to take advantage of you.

Schmidt & Schmidt offer extracts from commercial registers of the European Union countries, balance sheets and accounting statements, information on bankruptcy procedures, statutory books, lists of shareholders and other information that should minimise your risks.

An extract from the European Business Register can be used in order to:

  • Obtain information about trade partners in Europe
  • Negotiate foreign trade agreements
  • File legal claims
  • Register legal entities with foreign participation
  • Check potential employers
  • Apply for work visas to EU countries
