Q: How can you tell if a risk score is so poor that credit should not be provided?

The scores are banded by the analysis and the report will clearly indicate to clients which band the score falls into.

Q: What is Payment Performance information & how does it affect Experian scores

Experian manage a substantial payment data sharing programme where provider’s sales ledgers are matched against Experian’s commercial databases. Credit scores will be negatively impacted by businesses that pay beyond due dates, have outstanding unpaid accounts or have had their accounts placed for collection. Prompt payment behaviour can have positive effects on scores. Where the influence of the payment data has been significant, text will appear in the credit opinion section of the report making reference to this.

Q: Why can't I see accounts for Non-limited businesses?

Non-limited businesses are not required to file any documentation, financial or otherwise at the CRO, therefore you will not see a Balance Sheet and Profit & Loss information included in Non-limited reports.

Q: When I search for a business name, different companies come up in the search results?

When a search is carried out is also searches trading names of that company, so the results you might be seeing is the limited company for that trading name.

Q: How are the credit ratings and risk scores calculated?

The credit ratings and risk scores are created by applying statistically proven scoring models to the data held about a business. The credit rating is the average monthly exposure that is recommended. The risk score predicts the likelihood of a company failing in the next 12 months (the lower the score out of 100, the higher the risk).

Q: How are companies that are yet to file any financial information at CRO scored?

Director information can be highly predictive in this type of scoring environment along with Payment Performance data, Court Judgments and delays in publishing the first set of accounts. There are other influential factors such as the age of a company and whether a company is a subsidiary of an established parent..

Q: Can I view a report on screen without saving it and return to view it later on that day?

Your report will be also sent to your email address supplied during purchase so you will always have it stored in your email inbox.
