How is the credit risk calculated?

Here you will find a further explanation of the most frequently asked questions that companies ask us about how we calculate credit risks for companies and directors.

How is the credit score in a company credit report calculated?

The company credit score is calculated by analysing companies over a 12-month period. 

Using a differentiation analysis, we have identified key data variables that are essential in predicting the probability of a company becoming insolvent within the next 12 months. 

These variables are then compared to our entire company database and an appropriate risk weighting is assigned to each variable through statistical analysis. 

By calculating these key variables, combined with the prevailing variables, we generate a credit score in every credit report for each individual company. 

How often is the credit score and credit limit calculated?

The scores are calculated daily and are fully automated, no manual calculation is needed to manipulate or adjust the credit scores/ratings. Daily feeds are pulled from our databases to update the scores in real time. 

An example - When a company files its latest financial statements with a National Bank, the documents are analysed and updated in the database within 48 hours. Once they are available to the public, the company's credit risk score is recorded/adjusted based on the latest filed accounts.

How is the credit limit of a company calculated?

We calculate a company's credit limits by examining its financial position in more detail. By analysing critical credit information fields in combination with the company's credit score, we can more accurately determine a credit limit decision.

These fields include:

- Net worth
- Working capital
- Net cash flow operations
- Accounts receivable & liquidity
- Turnover (if available)

When a company has a positive score and the above financial fields are all of high value, you can usually expect this company to have a good credit limit.

If these values are low (or negative), then the credit limit decision will reflect this.

The above financial items are standard for credit assessment conditions.

How do I understand the credit score in a credit report?

The credit score in a credit report for Belgium ranges from 0 to 100 and predicts the probability of a company becoming insolvent in the next 12 months. There are five categories:

- A very good credit rating
- Good creditworthiness
- Creditworthy
- Credit Against Collateral
- Credit At Your Discretion

There are also cases where the company is not rated, namely:
No Rating - The financial statements are too old / Liquidated / Dissolved / dissolved / etc.+§

The international and uniform credit score from A to E makes it easier to compare companies from different countries. Companies with an A-score represent the lowest risk, D is the highest risk and where an E-score cannot be assessed.
