EU Business Register
Warning against the activities of the EU Business Register (or similar companies)
We want to draw attention to the behavior and practices of EU Business Register ( or another company with a different name ) to avoid conduct business with this company and so avoid unnecessary future problems.
The company operates on the principle of signing the form, according to which a company will be registered in its database. The overall view of the form is so designed as to create the impression that the registration is free. In the header of the form is stated that changes of the data in the registry are free of charge, while at the bottom of the form there is small print notice of the annual fee for registration of a company in the register. This, however, not everyone reads and thinking that the service is free of charge signes the form and send it for the registration. Subsequently the entrepreneur receives an invoice for significant amount. After the enterpreneur is in delay with the payment of the invoice, other companies dealing with debt collection starts to contact him. The receivable is growing for the interest and costs associated with collecting debts.
Therefore, we would like to warn the entrepreneurs to properly study these forms and do not sign them, especially if they are presented as free of charge.
