International Business Credit Reports

Grow Internationally with Confidence

International Business Credit Reports

Even under the best of circumstances, working with international companies is risky, especially when it’s time to get paid as laws, contracts and norms often do not work in your favor. While we can’t make doing business internationally abroad risk-free, we have built up the world’s largest business credit database so that you can mitigate at least some of the risk and grow your business with confidence.

Creditsafe offers a cost effective global risk management solution using our business data and analytics from around the world. We’ve built the world’s largest owned database of more than 320 million business credit reports across 100+ countries.

Answer key questions like:

International credit scoring – a language everyone understands

To make things easier for you when trading internationally, we have created an international score.

International Rating

This allows you to compare business 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 easy for you to compare reports.

Although we may not hold information on every company in the world, 99.9% of all business credit reports requested by our customers are delivered instantly online. We don’t store historic reports and will immediately investigate any business we don’t hold information on to deliver fresh commercial insight you can trust.

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. 

  • A - Very Low Risk
  • B - Low Risk
  • C - Moderate Risk
  • D - High Risk
  • E - Not Rated

Frequently asked questions

What’s included in an international business credit report?

Our international business credit reports include most of the information you would expect to find in a local report. We sometimes need to gather information from other local sources so the information may vary country by country.

Where do you get your data?

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

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 international business credit report within as little as 2–10 working days.

Why is the credit scoring banded A to E, rather than 1 – 100?

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 long will it take to receive my report?

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

How often are the reports updated?

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