What goes into a business credit report?

Scores & Limits

Invoices and Payments

Data analysis is at the core of what we do at Creditsafe. Our industry leading scoring system includes key statistical metrics and the most advanced statistical techniques to help determine the financial stability of a company.

With our scoring model, we can predict 70% of company insolvencies 12 months in advance—saving you the financial worry that bad debt brings. In fact, our credit scores and limits are so predictive that all leading credit insurers endorse them.

Scores & Limits

While we make every effort to simplify the credit lending decision for you through our ratings and limits, we understand that our business credit reports are also used for other purposes. For example, our credit reports provide you with the crucial data needed when you’re looking at a potential merger or takeover and tendering process, or if you want a more in depth view of a company you’re about to do business with. This is why we include up to 5 years’ of full financials as standard.

In a Creditsafe business credit report you will always find (where available) the following:

  • Profit & Loss
  • Balance Sheets
  • Capital & Reserves
  • Key Ratios
  • Cashflow

In addition to this data, we also include access to information such as UCC filings, new corporations, director changes, changes of registered addresses, and much more.

Financial Data

To gain a better insight into a how a company operates, you need to know more about the people running the business.

By reviewing information on the people leading a company, you can get a better understanding of where the business is going. All our business credit reports include officer data, and using our reports you can expect to find the following information:

  • Full Name and Address
  • Month and Year of Birth
  • Nationality
  • Appointment & Resignation Dates
  • Current & Previous Appointments

Also included in our reports is the business credit score of the company at the time an Officer has resigned. 

Officer Information

The payment behavior of a business is a strong indicator of their current financial situation. If a company falls behind on its invoices it’s statistically proven to be more likely to become insolvent. 

We created the Creditsafe Trade Payment Program for this reason. To date we have over 7,000 suppliers of trade payment data worldwide and over 63% of all our viewed credit reports contain trade payment data.
