GBRDirect is a web portal that provides you with a single, direct, electronic access point to the official company registration offices in countries around the world. GBR does not store any information that it provides: everything comes from the national companies register “live”. GBRDirect began with coverage of the European countries through its relationship with the European Business Register (www.ebr.org) and has since expanded to additionally cover over 45 US state registers and other countries across the globe. GBRDirect is used by 5 of the top 15 banks in the world, many legal and accounting firms and government agencies to perform compliance, due diligence and know-your-customer checks.
With GBRDirect you can check the legal and financial status of potential customers, suppliers and partners as recorded in the official government registers. This information is delivered, time and date stamped, in real-time to your desktop. Documents available include Incorporation Documents, Annual Accounts, Company Profiles, Company Appointments and Annual Returns. Additionally we provide a simple online VAT number check to verify that a VAT number in any EU State is valid. A recent addition to GBRDirect has been the addition of a credit reporting service where the credit worthiness on any company can be checked
