There is no register of bankrupt companies, however it can be checked if the company is bankrupt through the company register of Luxemburg, furthermore a list of companies declared bankruptcy is published on a monthly basis.
Regarding individuals - Bankruptcy is available to traders (ie, commercial companies governed by the Companies Act) as well as other persons, including natural persons, qualifying as traders due to the fact that they conduct a commercial activity within the meaning of the Commercial Code.
There is a registry of beneficial owners which has the date and place of birth of the beneficial owner of the company, country of residence, nationality and nature of interest (e.g. direct owner or owns the company through another company). However, when I used it, not all companies have declared beneficial owners.
If we know what property is owned by the subject, we can request an extract from the land registry of Luxembourg which includes an ownership certificate, however the ownership certificate has only the name of the owner (company/person) and postcode, not the complete address.
For unregistered users only one request can be made per day and the extract is not send automatically, most likely a person will contact us before providing the info.
No director search is available in the company registry of Luxembourg; therefore, the corporate engagements for the past 3 years must be checked from other sources. If we identify the LinkedIn profile of the Subject or have his CV, we should be able to verify if the information listed in the profile is correct through the Luxembourg company register. I am not entirely sure what information is provided when you buy the company profile, possibly past directors/shareholders are included.
Regarding company credit checks, CreditReform and Experian provide them, but the fee and TAT are not available, we need to contact them first.
For individuals, I did not find a credit check provider/service.
There is no official database of court cases, however some cases are listed here http://www.worldlii.org/catalog/2230.html .
A negative certificate can be requested from the Luxembourg company register. The document provides information if a court ruling was recorded for the company.
