Let’s start off by explaining what it is that CreditorWatch actually does for businesses in Australia: we provide affordable credit information in the form of a business credit report about any legal entity. Sounds simple, right? Why haven’t you thought of seeking out these kinds of services before? Might something like this have helped you to prepare for previous cash flow slumps and avoid bad business debt in the past?
The answer to that question is probably because you didn’t know that you could, or that you were worried that the process wouldn’t be financially viable. CreditorWatch was created to solve both of those problems. Small businesses, in particular, have tight enough margins without going to the expense of purchasing a full business credit report for every company on their debtor list. Well, that is, until now. Regular credit reporting has been, traditionally, the privilege of big business and not considered accessible to smaller businesses. The kinds of information small businesses could afford from a commercial credit bureau may not have been as exhaustive as they needed to be or may only have included information from the last 12 months or so.
But, just like any time that you personally apply for credit and must submit to a credit history check, you can now demand the same from your commercial customers and access a business credit profile compiled by CreditorWatch and gathered from an extensive list of sources, not to mention our own thorough databases. You can access a credit rating immediately on potential or current debtors and ensure that you better understand the credit risk posed by a particular company. A commercial credit bureau operates by continually gathering credit rating dating from as many sources as possible in order to provide an accurate risk assessment of a business seeking credit in any form, and that’s exactly what we do.
Information that we gather as part our business credit report is taken from reputable Australian financial sources which include company history from the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC), the Australian Business Register (ABR), Australian Financial Security Authority (AFSA) which reports bankruptcy data, as well the Australian Courts and debt collection agencies. We also collect data from our own users who as they can register credit defaults against companies they are chasing for outstanding accounts. Our services also include the ongoing monitoring of your customer database so that you receive notifications for important changes that could affect their credit score, credit report and ability to pay their bills.
