When deciding on cooperation with a company or individual entrepreneur, the question of the reliability and honesty of the Counterparty constantly arises. This applies to a situation when an Individual orders a product or service or when a legal entity begins cooperation with a new Supplier / Partner / Client. It is important to check the Counterparty and choose reliable companies in order to eliminate possible risks.When making a payment (prepayment) for goods or services, you should know for sure that the Supplier will fulfill all  obligations, deliver goods or provide the service on time.

For Legal Entities, verification of the Counterparty is the main action to prevent financial and tax risks. The Federal Tax Service strongly recommends to check Counterparties using all available public and legal sources of information. The easiest way to verify a Counterparty is to obtain information from the Unified State Register of Legal Entities on the official website. To obtain more complete information, it is recommended to use the service for checking counterparties.
