International Business Registers Survey 2014

We invite you to participate in the International Business Registers Survey 2014.

The survey, which began in 2002, is the only one of its kind in the world and last year encompassed over seventy registries from six continents. This year we are proud to tell you that the survey and the work with the 2015 report will be conducted as a collaboration between the Association of Latin American and the Caribbean Registrars, (ASORLAC), the Corporate Registers Forum, (CRF), the European Commerce Registers’ Forum, (ECRF), and the International Association of Commercial Administrators, (IACA).

This year, the World Bank has, in part, contributed to the construction of the survey. This reflects the growth of the survey, its importance in giving business registers an international voice and gives a recognition to the role registries play for the ease of doing business.

Your participation and contribution is really important and will help ensure that the 2014 survey will be the most in-depth survey of registries ever carried out, providing us all with high quality reliable information on registries right across the world. The survey of 2014 will be distributed during the first week of December in 2014 and will be closed in the beginning of February 2015.

Thank you for your cooperation and we look forward to the results.

/Annika Bränström, President of ECRF and General director of the Swedish Companies Registration Office (Bolagsverket)
