Rime’s Business (Credit) Information Reports (BIR) are high quality commercial profiles on enterprises within our region. Our rigorous quality control procedures ensure that the intelligence contained in the BIR is accurate and up-to-date. Additionally, the report is structured in a way to maximise clarity.

How do we capture the requisite data?

  • Locally employed correspondents in Rime offices throughout the region. Wherever possible our correspondents will visit the offices of the subject company and obtain relevant information from appropriate senior company personnel.
  • A network of regional contacts, sources and business associates built up over the past 13 years. We continue to establish further data sources, in order to maximise the depth of our information.
  • Public records and published accounts.
  • Local and international media/internet search.
  • Affiliations with local government authorities
