Check the credit worthiness of companies

  • Unsure whether a business has the means to pay for goods or services you've been requested to supply? 
  • Interested in verifying the financial viability of your existing / potential suppliers? 
  • Looking to investigate possible business partners before signing a contract? 

Take advantage of our free credit checking service. The reports we’re able to provide from Experian, are both comprehensive and of high quality, providing the information from which well-informed decisions can be made.

Reports will ultimately highlight any companies with a poor credit worthiness rating and those in a poor financial situation before you enter into business with them, thereby greatly reducing the risks associated with financial investments.

Information provided includes a credit score and credit limit value, financial and risk information, ownership and director’s details as well as performance breakdowns highlighting credit score and credit limit changes on a monthly basis together with payment performance information for many companies.

Reports are available for any limited company within the UK, briefer reports are also available for many sole traders. Should you be working with businesses trading outside of the UK reports are also available for foreign companies, however a fee would be applicable to obtain this information. The fee would largely depend on where the business is based. No charge would be incurred until you confirm whether you’d like to obtain the report after a quote has been provided.

Please complete our online enquiry form to request a credit report, providing the name of the company / business and if possible their registered office / trading address and website.
