Foreign Buyers

Having created a short list of countries that interest you – and having identified the industry codes of interest – use these to create your company shortlists.


Use the following to create your company shortlists:

  1. The Kompass Free Web Search - for single company information.
  2. Kompass EasyList - use the same interface as for the Free service, but with the option to create your own tailored target list for downloading.
  3. Kompass EasyBusiness (for more extensive searching and integration with your ERP system) - full download including access to the Kompass database of 33 million companies in over 65 countries.
  4. Graydon Credit References.
  5. For EU based buyers, you should also check their VAT and EORI numbers.

Kompass EasyList

Using the same online interface as the free services, use the search criteria to create your own tailored target list for downloading. *The price for the file containing your target list is shown before you buy.


*N.B. If you just need a list of a few hundred companies, this is an economic alternative to EasyBusiness. However, if you need heavier access to the Kompass database, then you should consider subscribing to EasyBusiness.

Graydon Credit Rating

At the heart of Graydon Credit Reports is the Graydon Credit Rating, which provides you with an overview of the level of financial risk involved in working with the subject company. Easy to understand and taking into consideration more data attributes, the Graydon Rating is used to determine the creditworthiness of an organisation. Supported by the Augur Scoring models, it takes into account key financial and non-financial indicators of the health of a business including:

  • Assets
  • Liquidity
  • Profitability
  • Demographics
  • Negative events; e.g. County Court Judgements

The score is presented in a range from AAA (the highest) to D (the lowest).

When opening new or reviewing existing accounts, it’s important you assess the level of risk for your organisation.

The Graydon Credit Rating is recognised by all leading credit insurers and can be used to support a claim.
