Global Business Register Announce Partnership with Bureau van Dijk
Global Business Register, trading as GBRDirect the premier provider of official company information sourced in real-time from business registers around the world, is today delighted to announce the launch of a new partnership with global information provider, Bureau van Dijk. Under the new arrangement, GBRDirect will provide an official gateway via the GBR API to Bureau van Dijk’s Orbis platform, in order to deliver real-time official company information and source documents from official business registers located in 26 European countries and 48 US states to Orbis users.
The Bureau Van Dijk Orbis platform contains comprehensive information on companies worldwide which allows easy investigation and analysis of company information quickly. Combining information from many sources, Orbis is the culmination of a huge amount of expertise in information management and aggregation. It contains high quality and consistent data, all combined with proprietary software for searching and analysis.
Commenting on the new partnership, Ben Cronin, C.E.O. of Global Business Register said “The new agreement with Bureau Van Dijk now gives their global users access to an additional range of original source documents that have legal standing and are sourced in real-time from the business registers. Over the last few years we have seen rapid growth in the number of users accessing the GBRDirect platform as the need for primary source documentation continues to grow. This is a direct consequence of stricter anti-money laundering (AML) and know your client (KYC) regulations which strongly recommend that companies use official business register information when identifying companies and their owners.”
Global Business Register has been identified globally as a suitable resource for KYC checks, AML checks, EDD checks and client on-boarding in regulated industries. Global Business Register has also been identified as a suitable resource that meets the impending FATCA rules emanating from the US tax authorities (IRS).
