Why use a Business Credit Report?
Whether you are reviewing the credit status of your own company, or that of a potential supplier or customer, our business credit report will provide you with all available data.
All information in one place
Whilst a company's Accounts and other official documents filed at the registry are useful in compiling an opinion on a company's status, our Business Credit Reports give you all of the information you need in one easy to read report. Not only do we include information filed by the company at the registry, we also include CCJ information sourced from the Registry Trust (via Creditsafe Business Solutions Limited) and winding up petitions published in the Gazettes.
Know your risks
Our business credit reports provide you with an easy to use Credit Risk Score. The score ranges from 0 (high risk) to 100 (least risk) and predicts the likelihood of the company becoming insolvent within the next 12 months. Our scores are based on thorough analysis of the company accounts and all of the data sources available to us.
Current financial status
All companies are required to file accounts annually. These accounts however, provide an overdue of a company's financial status for the period they were filed. This is usually 12 months or more. Our analysts work round the clock to ensure our algorithms use the widest range of available data to provide an overdue of a company's financial status today, not 12 months ago.
Keep up to date
All credit reports come with free company monitoring by default. This means that if there is a change to the company's credit status, you are alerted straight away. Equally if new accounts are filed or directors appointed, you will be notified.
