Business Credit Report: How to Review It?

Business Credit Report: Introduction

  • It is important to have an understanding of your business credit report
  • When you review your business credit report, it gives you an insight into your repayment history and financial behaviour with respect to your business.
  • It is available in the form of a document that outlines all financial credit related transactions and displays how you have dealt with debt

Information Included in Your Business Credit Report

  • You can access your business credit report from any of the 6 major credit bureaus in India. 3 of the most important ones are:
  1. TransUnion Credit Information Bureau (India) Limited or CIBIL
  2. Experian
  3. CRIF Highmark
  • Every credit bureau has its own method of creating a business credit report 
  • Common information that is captured in the business credit report are:
  1. Your personal information
  2. Your list of open and closed debt accounts
  3. Any credit enquiries that you have made
  4. Public records of defaults, bankruptcies, repossessions, foreclosures, judgements on civil suits, liens, etc.

Importance of Your Business Credit Report
