Report on the first digital International Business Registers Survey is ONLINE

EBRA, in collaboration with CRF, IACA and ASORLAC, have launched their Report from the first digital International Business Register Report (IBRR) survey, which took place in October 2021.

The survey looked at Business Register Legal Settings and Business Dynamics and is the result of a pilot project that involved Business Registry Associations from around the world. The Project will continue in 2022, with a second survey on the Use of eServices (to be launched in September 2022).

The report analyses the results from 85 participants that took part in the online survey and offers an insight into the practice and performance of different business registries.

It highlights how different registries manage:

  • Shareholder Details
  • Beneficial Ownership
  • Incorporations and Terminations

The survey data allows business registries from around the world to learn valuable lessons, as well as sparking ideas for improving systems and overcoming obstacles within their own registries. A wide range of knowledge is covered in the survey data, including the fees in different jurisdictions and how business registers combat corporate identity theft.

The digital survey and report are the efforts of a dedicated Working Group supported by EBRA, involving highly skilled individuals representing jurisdictions and international associations from around the world.
