A company search is a process of completing a check on another company to get company information – such as company accounts. Company searches are a valuable and common way to get background information that company directors may not want you to know. But did you know that as well as being able to search company information, you can also complete a director search?Here’s why director searches should become a key part of your business strategy
By completing a director search (these can normally be facilitated by company credit report companies) you can view and analyse the following information:
- Director name
- Date of birth
On top of this relatively basic information, you should be able to see all the companies that the director is, or has been involved with. Now this can be extremely useful.
If you’re looking to…
- Employ a new member of staff
- Go into partnership with a company
- Make a large order with a company
- Accept a large order with a company
By completing a company search and then a director search you are able to see the full picture; the company and what it has (or hasn’t) achieved so far, and the people behind the company – what other companies they have been involved with and how those companies are performing.
i Simply put, all of this helps you make better business decisions.
