60% of UK directors were once the director of a company that is no longer trading.

Creditsafe company credit reports include trade payment data

As companies file their accounts with official bodies annually, the payment behaviour of a company is a strong indicator of their current financial situation. For example, if a medium sized businesses pays on average 50% of their bills late, they are statistically proven to be 4 times more likely to become insolvent.

It is for this reason that we created the Creditsafe Trade Payment Programme. To date, we have over 85 million tradelines feeding us trade payment information worldwide and now over 63% of all our viewed credit reports contain trade payment data

Frequently asked questions

What is my business credit score?

A Creditsafe business credit score, sometimes referred to as a company credit rating calculates the probability of a company becoming insolvent within the next 12 months. We highlight creditworthiness through our ‘traffic light’ system of credit scoring – red advises you to be cautious and request a cash payment; amber suggests that you negotiate short payment terms; and green gives you a positive credit decision. Our credit scoring provides a score of 1-100.
