Can Austrade assist in conducting due diligence on a potential importer overseas?

Most Australian exporters rely on agents and distributors in international markets and it is important to check the credibility and track record of potential partners. Austrade’s website contains advice on choosing agents and distributors. Due to the confidentiality of the information on turnover, credit worthiness and sales track record of businesses, Austrade is not able to provide due diligence assessments on Australian or overseas organisations.

Specialist organisations in Australia, such as few listed below, are able to provide assistance with credit and risk assessments.

Austrade may be able to refer you to specialist service providers in overseas markets. Your business must be registered with Austrade as an Australian exporter for us to generate a list.
