2015 International Business Registers Report – Now available online

The 2015 report is available here 2015 International Business Registers Report

The International Business Registers Report is the most comprehensive benchmarking tool for business registers internationally.

A record number of jurisdictions from across the globe contributed to this years survey.

The report brings together jurisdictions who are members of the Corporate Registers Forum, the European Commerce Registers Forum, the International Association of Commercial Administrators and members of ASORLAC (the Association of Registers from Latin America and the Caribbean).

The Corporate Registers Forum are grateful to the report team, lead by personnel from the Swedish Companies Registration Office (Bolagsverket) and an international team of experts.

The main purpose for conducting annual surveys over past years was not to rank the business registration authorities and/or jurisdictions based on their performances, but to analyze different business registration systems and procedures, facilitating the business registration authorities to compare their own practices and performances with those of other organisations.

The surveys and reports have been structured around six major topics:

  • legal and institutional settings of organisations responsible for business registration;
  • registration process;
  • use of e-services by business registries;
  • funding and fees; and
  • business dynamics/trends resulting from registration; and
  • the Information in the Business registers.

Participation in the survey is open to all business registration authorities in the world.
