What is Credit Reporting?
A credit report shows a person’s financial history as a bill payer, buyer and borrower. It can include information including history of loan applications, employment history and history of any defaults as well as any unpaid bills. The process is really about collecting the information to provide it to creditors as long as it is done in accordance with the various national privacy, finance and credit reporting laws.
Knowing a potential customer’s or client’s creditworthiness can help in better decision making when it comes to the risk of doing financial business with this individual. This type of service can save you a great deal of money and trouble in future because you are able to tell right away if the individual or individuals can pay for the goods or services you provide.
Businesses in any industry can benefit from credit reporting. No matter what product or service you provide that doesn’t require upfront payment you must ensure you find the information about someone’s credit history.
How We Can Conduct Credit Reporting on Your Behalf
Australian licensing regulations and privacy laws allow only certain agencies to conduct credit checks and only when particular information has been provided by a prospective client. We can advise you on this process and give you a comprehensive report on your potential client, customer or business partner. We charge our fees based on how much information we need and are always happy to create a solution that is tailored to your needs.

Common Credit Reporting Questions
How can your business or organisation benefit from obtaining a credit report?
Wherever payment comes after delivery of goods or services, there is always the risk that the customer will fail to pay – leaving your organisation out of pocket. In some cases this credit risk is greater than others. By obtaining a credit report you can better assess this risk.
Credit reports are especially useful when you take on new customers, when any disagreement begins over the goods or services delivered, or when you are considering extending a credit line with an existing customer. These circumstances occur all the time in day to day business and a credit report can give you valuable information on a customer’s track record on reliably meeting their financial obligations.
Who can conduct a credit report in Australia?
Only designated credit bureaus (e.g. Experian and Equifax) can carry out credit checks – and only when particular information has been provided by the party to whom the credit check relates. Through our partnerships with a number of major international credit agencies, we can advise you on this process and give you a comprehensive report on your potential client, customer or business partner.
