Why use a credit check service?
Checking a potential client’s credit rating is a useful tool to judge the financial status and trustworthiness of a company before signing a contract and entering a working relationship with them.
Another use for credit checking is with existing clients. If a client that has always paid promptly suddenly asks for work to be completed on credit, then alarm bells may start ringing. You can use the credit checking service to sound out whether another month’s payment on credit terms is a good idea.

What will I get for my money?
The following information is intended as a general guide – information available on each company will depend on what has been filed at Companies House.
Full Company Reports
Full Company Reports are available on over 4 million UK Limited companies, partnerships, and sole traders, online, 24 hours a day at only £9.95 plus VAT.
As long as the information has been filed at Companies House, the Full Report will include the following:

- Credit Guide
- Official Company Information
- County Court Judgments (CCJs)

Full Reports on partnerships and sole traders show less comprehensive information since reporting requirements for these businesses are less stringent. Recently formed companies will also have limited details. All reports are displayed immediately on purchase and emailed to the purchaser in attached html format.
Snapshot Company Reports
A Snapshot Report costs £5.95 plus VAT and is ideal for those decision makers looking to supplement the knowledge that they already have of a company with a credit score and suggested credit guide.
