International Company Profile

The International Company Profile (ICP) is a useful due diligence tool for American companies seeking to enter international business relationships. The ICP provides you with an in-depth background check on UK limited liability firms. Reports on partnerships and sole traders may also be possible depending on information availability.

The ICP is compiled using published information from a variety of sources, as well as feedback from telephone interviews with the potential partner and its suppliers and customers. The ICP delivers a report that will enable you to make a sound judgment as to the relative strength of the firm in its market and its reliability. In particular, the report details: company size and sales, background and product information, references taken up, financial data, company officers, market information and outlook, company reputation, and our evaluation of the company. If needed, we will ask the company questions specific to your request. If you wish us to visit your prospective partner, we can do so for an additional fee to cover travel costs.

Delivery Time: To be determined in consultation with Post.
