Thirdly, it is a live system. It is growing, developing and is being improved constantly.
Data on which regions are available in The Globas-i®?Answer:
The Globas-i® System contains information on companies registered in Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan.
What are your information sources? Whether the information is true?Answer:
We use official registers and sources authorized by authorities to maintain registers or databases - i.e. we use only reliable information. The main data sources (registration data and accounts) are the following: the Unified State Register of Legal Entities and the Statistical register. Contact data (addresses, phone numbers etc) sources include the Credinform call-center, business directories and catalogs.

The database is updated regularly. Financial indicators of issuers are updated quarterly, annual balances – yearly, registration data - quarterly (monthly). Work of the call-center allows to update daily contact information on the largest enterprises and companies, data on which are more often requested: totally - on more than 300.000 companies.

Update allows to check and update the data on a company for a specific date. Does it mean that the companies without actualization contain outdated information?Answer:
The worked out plan to update all company data provides an step by step update at the optimum time, depending on the frequency of updating of official registers and public sources. When the client requests the update, information is checked and updated extraordinary. The companies on which no order on update is placed are updated according to the plan.
I do know that the financial statements are submitted in the Federal State Statistics Service but I can’t find these updated data in The Globas-i® System. What shall I do?Answer:
The companies provide the Federal State Statistics Service with balances for an expired year up to the beginning of the second quarter of the next year. Within several months the Federal State Statistics Service processes data and by the end of the third quarter balances become available. For the largest 100 000 companies financial statements are available in July already.
The field "Founder" contains the common expression "Natural persons". Why can't I get information about these persons?Answer:
Our data sources about founders (EGRUL and Statistical register) don’t always contain detailed information on founders. Sometimes this information appears after related registration changes took place. In this case we recommend to order an update. Often EGRUL records contain mistakes in the information about founders. In this case we offer to use 2 ways: EGRUL and the verified information of Credinform.

According to the Federal law N 152-FZ of 27.07.2006 "About private data" data on individuals are confidential and can't be published without consent of the personal information subject.

What is the difference between Credinform report and the Extract from the Unified State Register EGRUL?Answer:
The most important information from the Extract EGRUL is included into our report: registration data, founders and owners, executives, OKVED (Economic activity number), licenses, branches.
The Credinform report contains also the following information:
- contact information checked by our call-center (location, phone and fax numbers, website)
- activity fields
- management including data from open sources (Deputy Director, Heads of departments, Board members etc.)
- affiliated companies, clients and suppliers
- bank details
- financial data (comparison for three periods)
- arbitration proceedings
- solvency index Globas-i (forecast of index dynamics, conclusion about expediency of cooperation, credit risk evaluation, maximum credit amount)
Our report is more informative because of using several sources including EGRUL. Furthermore the report includes an analytical aspect – solvency index.
I’ve looked through the information about my company. The number of employees is not true. Why?Answer:
Official sources don’t provide information about the number of employees therefore for considerable number of companies the number of employees is an indicator that is calculated by an expert way. Taking into account the main characteristics of the company - financial indicators, activity fields, region etc we created the formula that models the most probable indicator. The simulated indicator allows to get an idea of the company size and shows whether the company can be attributed to small, medium or large business, not to guess the exact number. The only exception are companies publishing numbers of employees in their quarterly reports, on their websites or business directories. In this case Globas-i data and published data are equal.
Do you guarantee the confidentiality?Answer:
Yes, of course, we guarantee the confidentiality of cooperation to our clients. Our standard agreement also contains clause about confidentiality. It should be noted that we also demand from our clients to obey the rule of confidentiality.
Does your Agency guarantee the reliability of provided information?Answer:
Yes, we guarantee that information collected from the official sources is not distorted and delivered to the client in an accurate, complete and convenient form.
Tell us about prices on your services.Answer:
All information about prices is contained in our Pricelist that we send to our potential clients on request. It should be noted that prices change once each two years in average. We are glad to inform you that the prices of reports on foreign companies (normal delivery speed) became lower in 2014.
It was possible thanks to optimization of our international relations.
May we use your information as the evidence of "due diligence" by checking contracting party to submit to the tax office?Answer:
Yes, our reports, sealed and signed, can be submitted to the tax office as the evidence of "due diligence".
What does the Solvency index Globas-i mean?Answer:
The index is the concise, reliable and updated conclusion about the financial situation and solvency of the requested company. The short summary corresponding to the index assessment of the company gives the chance to save time to analyse a large number of companies and determine their position on the market.
The index value ranges from 100 points - the highest level of solvency up to 600 points - the highest credit risk or insolvency. Based on the assigned index the companies share on the following five groups that reflect the solvency degree of a legal entity and the expediency of cooperation with this company.
The index is an evaluation of solvency on a specific date - the date of the assignment of the index. The index is assigned for a period of up to 6 months. The index is revised each 6 months on the basis of new information having impact on solvency of the company.
Why are the latest balances only for 2013 available?Answer:
