    tips/information on/for

    Hi,

    I think that "Tips/information on business customs in different countries were/was very useful." is idiomatic.

    How about "Tips/information for business customs in different countries were/was very useful."?

    Thanks in advance.

    'On' sounds much more natural to me.
