Company Full Report GwG
The Company Full Report GwG is our premium product and is aimed at companies that are subject to the provisions of the German Anti-Money Laundering Act (Geldwäschegesetz or GwG). The focus is on identifying the beneficial owner(s) according to the AMLA. This makes it the first full information product of its kind on the German information brokerage market that supports the fulfilment of one of the core obligations under the AMLA and at the same time allows for a well-founded creditworthiness rating.
Company Full Report
The Company Full Report provides detailed background information on your German business partners to make your business more secure and predictable. In addition to the information most valued by our clients, the creditworthiness index and the maximum credit recommendation, the full report exclusively contains the balance sheet grade. The areas of application of the full report are manifold. Thanks to the detailed presentation of balance sheet information in a two-year comparison showing changes, the full report also forms a reliable basis for an in-depth balance sheet analysis of a company. Key balance sheet ratios for analysis are the equity ratio, the return on assets and a liquidity ratio. This information is presented clearly and comprehensibly with the help of graphics.
Compared to the more detailed Company Full Report, the Credit Report concentrates on basic data and facts about a company for the assessment of credit decisions for medium to high risks.
For medium business risk, we support your credit decision with condensed information about your business partners. You receive key information on the requested company, for example on negative events, as well as an overview of the financial position and business figures.
For smaller risks, the FinanceCheck keeps you well informed about the creditworthiness of your customers. We provide you with decision-relevant information such as payment history and any negative events at a glance. The FinanceCheck also includes a maximum credit recommendation.
The GwG Report (Anti-Money Laundering Report) enables companies to identify the beneficial owner(s) of their national contractual partners. Determining the natural person(s) behind a business relationship (in technical jargon the ultimate beneficial owner(s)) is a key factor in the fight against money laundering. Together with the legal form and the data contained in the commercial and transparency registers, this makes up the content of the GwG Report.
CRIF’s optional Monitoring service automatically notifies you for a period of 12 months of changes relating to your business partners for already retrieved credit enquiries (excluding GwG Report).
CRIF’s Monitoring Plus service lets you keep track permanently of detailed changes at element level for already retrieved credit enquiries (excluding GwG Report).
