International score

To make things easier for you when trading internationally, we have created an international score. This allows you to compare company credit scores across the globe; having peace of mind throughout every country you trade in. By using the same scoring range and risk descriptions for all countries, we make it even easier for you to compare reports.

Our score is designed with simplicity, ranging from A-E; A being the lowest risk, D being the highest risk and E being unrated. It measures the likelihood of a company becoming insolvent within the next 12 months.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s included in an international report?

Our international business reports include most of the information you would expect to find in a local report, however not all countries have an equivalent to Companies House in the UK. We sometimes need to gather information from other local sources so the information may vary country by country.

How long will it take to receive my report?

99.9% of all reports requested by our customers are typically delivered instantly online. Where a company is not available, a fresh investigation will take between 2-10 working days depending on the country.

How does a fresh investigation work?

When a company report is not available to view online you have the opportunity to freshly investigate a business. Once this request is received, we will attempt to contact the company directly using our network of local partners and official registries to provide a detailed report within as little as 2–10 working days.

Where do you get your data from?

Our data is collected from over 200 sources; where possible we will collect information from official registries similar to Companies House. Our network of 16 offices and trusted local partners allow us to collect information locally; ensuring we always deliver quality, fresh information.

Why is the credit scoring banded A to E?

Because not all countries use a 1-100 score; using an A-E score makes it easier for you to compare the credit risk of companies from across different countries. A is the lowest risk, D the highest risk and E is unrated.

How often are the reports updated?

Creditsafe international database reports are updated in real-time, over 1 million times a day.
