What benefits are there to using the Creditsafe Business Index?

At a basic level, the Business Index allows you to benchmark your business, customers, and suppliers quickly and easily against others in their industries. This is useful in several ways:

  • Get an indication of how your business is performing
  • Ensure your customers are solvent and that trading with them is financially viable
  • Ensure that your suppliers are reliable
  • Obtain useful contact information for any company, including those related to your search
  • Find out how long a customer/supplier has been trading
  • Conduct market research with the ‘related companies’ feature – find companies to buy from or sell to

This is achieved by providing information on several factors that include:

  • Business Verification – verify a company is genuine, confirm its registered details, address, and legal status
  • Credit Score and Limit – See a company’s credit score and maximum recommended credit limit compared to others in the same industry
  • Financial performance – Understand if a company is growing and financially stable
  • Company Ownership – Understand the true ownership of any company and its ultimate beneficial owner
  • Key Risk Indicators – Confirm if your customer or supplier has any CCJ’s, late or missed payments

The Business Index is powered by the Creditsafe database, which is updated in real-time from over 9,000 sources around the world.
