What is a Business Information Report?

The BIR is a detailed report to help mitigate potential business risks by accessing a company’s operations, financial performance, and public filing records. It’s an industry standard for evaluating both new and existing credit relationships. Plus, the report supports general company research and decision-making in a range of other functions, such as marketing, underwriting, legal services and purchasing.

Business Information Reports help you determine a company's profitability, financial stability, and payment performance. Help avoid late payment defaults and assess a company’s business risk with straightforward risk information.

Latin American businesses have the option of the Commercial BIR or the Comprehensive BIR

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industrys standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
