Credit rating in Russia, Poland and Romania

Trust is good, knowledge is better!

Whoever wants to cooperate successfully must be able to trust the other party. You must know therefore who you are dealing with: Do you know your business partners in Russia?

Do you really know who you have become involved with?

Be careful of flying blind, especially when cooperating across borders. We take a close look for you at who your business partners in Russia are, and what they have done previously.

We create transparency, so that you know who you can trust. Our credit rating is an absolute must for all those who want to invest in Russia.

Hardly understandable for outsiders

Eastern European structures and business practices are frequently difficult for outsiders to understand. Basic cultural differences characterize business life on both sides, and the problem is compounded by barriers of language and understanding. The value systems are completely different: In the new Eastern markets as in the Anglo-Saxon economic regions, it is often only a matter of making a quick profit, by whatever means and irrespective of what follows. In Germany, greater value is placed on long-term success and consistent growth.

Credulity usually results in failure

A quick profit or long-term success: This divide makes credulity dangerous, people simply do not understand each other. What are quite normal practices for Eastern European business partners may be considered quite impossible on the German side. This is not a matter of deceit. The business processes from the contract to delivery and on to payment are difficult to understand. Some take place in risky grey areas. This is where the Western partner quickly develops a false sense of security.

Knowledge and foresight

This is what we aim to protect you against with our consultation. Our credit rating serves to throw light on the matter, to reveal the hidden structures to you and enable a realistic assessment. Much can be found out in advance. Anyone wanting to secure an order must, as in Germany, be able to assess the solvency of the other party. Our research can tell you how trustworthy your partner is, what shareholdings he has and how he has conducted himself in the past.

Our credit rating can do this for you. Take advantage of this service for the security of you and your company. Foresight is better than hindsight, protects you against unpleasant surprises and costs only a fraction. And you will then also sleep better as well.

We look forward to your call. We will be happy to present what we can do for you at a personal meeting.

Credulity usually results in failure

The Eastern partner wants a quick profit, the Western partner long-term success: This divide makes credulity dangerous - for the Westerner. He becomes an easy victim. What are quite normal practices for Eastern European business partners may be considered quite impossible on the German side. This is not necessarily a matter of deceit, but of gaining a partisan advantage wherever possible, from the contract to delivery and on to payment. These grey areas are particularly risky. This is where the Western partner quickly develops a false sense of security.

Taken to the cleaners

We have experienced the strangest cases, and do not want to go into them in detail here, although some general examples may serve for explanation: Entangled in an elaborate sequence of mailbox companies, ownership circumstances are concealed and payments become mired in red tape. Billing takes place through front companies who have their letterbox somewhere offshore, and are immune from prosecution. Or: The general manager “bins” the company, a common method: With outstanding payments or delivery obligations, companies are quickly disposed of, and sold on paper to a homeless person, who cannot be prosecuted further. The end of the story is the same: You have been taken to the cleaners. The money is gone, and the financial loss great.
