What does Business Index show you?

Business Index is useful for looking up and verifying some official company data. In addition, the summary information report shows you how a company scores against some industry averages.

Credit score

The credit score indicates how likely a company is to run into financial trouble within a 12-month period. This probability is expressed as a percentage called Probability of Default (PoD). The PoD is translated by GraydonCreditsafe into a number from 1 to 100, and also categorised into risk classes (A to E).

Credit limit

The credit limit is the maximum amount advised to deliver on account to a business. The credit limit is calculated using a financial accounting formula. The liquidity position of the company is very important here.

Days Beyond Terms (DBT)

DBT stands for 'Days Beyond Terms'. It is a weighted average that determines how well a company pays its bills. Companies with higher DBT pay slower or more days past due than those with lower DBT.

Business Index also offers this benchmark information across different sectors and on a geographical level. This allows you to see which specific sectors in a country are doing well or less well.
