One of the most trusted sources of business information, the Business Information Report (BIR) helps determine a company's profitability, financial stability, and payment performance. It's an industry standard for evaluating both new and existing credit relationships, especially medium-to-high risk accounts. Also, it supports the company's other divisions, like marketing and procurement.
The Business Information Report provides an overall profile of a company, including financial information, payment history, trends, history of business, ownership details, operational data, and details on related firms and special events (such as business moves, fires, and other disasters, and Quarterly Performance). It is available in millions of establishments worldwide.
