Company Results by Geographical Location

The ability to locate results by geographical location can be troublesome when having to consult multiple copies of a company’s Annual Report & Accounts.


Using a business database can make this task quicker and easier.

To get the best out of this database, it is useful to know that it is designed to work with the Internet Explorer browser.

In addition, it is advisable to select ‘Compatibility View Settings’ from the tools menu (represented by the ‘cog’ icon, then ‘Add’ and ‘Close’) to ensure all options display correctly.
