Earlier this quarter, Bureau van Dijk announced that it integrated aRMadillo’s original document ordering system into their Orbis platform. Documents are available from over 1,000 registries spanning 200 countries.
Original document research is important for compliance, legal, and anti-corruption research. Sourcing original images from official registries helps safeguard against forgeries.
Registered filings include
- Registry extracts
- Incorporation documents
- Articles of association
- Annual returns
- Directors’ appointments
- Registered agents
“All of our documents are sourced directly from official sources – where they physically scan the original documents – so you can be sure of their provenance,” said aRMadillo CEO Manny Cohen.
While filing is centralized in the UK (Companies House), it is split across fifty states in the US, 32 jurisdictions in Mexico, and 28 in Brazil. “People assume that because it’s so simple here [in the UK], it must be as easy elsewhere,” said Medina. “It isn’t.”
