THE MINISTRY of Economy has unveiled a new online database of business and non-business entities, www.hospodarskyregister.sk, which Economy Minister Juraj Miškov said will help people avoid doing business with unreliable companies, the Hospodárske Noviny daily reported.
The site, composed of data from all other state administration registries, will provide various kinds of economic information about business entities, providers of services, producers, exporters and importers, associations and other types of organisations.
Moreover, the daily wrote that the database will have its own evaluation rating of the credibility and reliability of the listed companies.
The database will include a list of those firms who have debts to either the state-run social insurer, Sociálna Poisťovňa, or any of the country’s health insurers.
“We want to help businessmen not to start business with unreliable companies,” Miškov said, as quoted by Hospodárske Noviny.
Róbert Kičina of the Business Alliance of Slovakia (PAS) praised the system and said that now businesses can finally find all the information they need in one place.
