Full risk visibility on your business customers

When you’re working with other businesses, you may not always know whether they’re going to pay you on-time. Leaving your business cashflow open to risks.

Do you know whether your customers have legal notices/CCJs registered to their business? Are they financially stable? Do they have a good credit score and history? 

Wouldn’t you want to know this before you start working together?

Protect your whole supply chain

Other people’s poor credit poses risks to how you do business. Offering credit to a business with a poor credit score, may impact the likelihood that you’ll get paid on time, impacting operations up and down your chain. 

If a company you work with has an unpaid CCJ, it’s likely that they owe money elsewhere. This could impact their  ability to meet the terms you agreed. Imagine knowing that before sending your first invoice.

  • Check the credit score of businesses, before you work with them

You can find information about the financial health of the companies you work with to understand whether it’s a risk to work with them. For example, if there’s a chance that they won’t be able to settle invoices. The financial health factors you’ll have access to include:

  • Your customer’s credit score and how it compares to similar businesses
  • The maximum credit limit they’re eligible for
  • Whether there are any legal notices against the business
  • Their payment performance, for example if it’s consistent
  • Any risks you should know about such as a recent drop in credit score

With Capitalise for Business Pro, you can check your exact business credit score any time you like just by logging into your account (as part of your detailed credit profile). You’ll also get a notification any time your credit score changes. If you have a free Capitalise for Business account, you’ll always know what range your credit score is in. We’ll also tell you whether lenders consider your score low, average or high risk and how that compares to other businesses in your industry.

When you check and monitor a company through Capitalise for Business, you’ll see:

  • Their credit score and how it compares to similar businesses
  • The maximum credit limit they’re eligible for
  • Whether there are any legal notices against the business
  • Their payment performance, for example if it’s consistent
  • Any risks you should know about such as a recent drop in credit score

It’s useful to know the credit scores of companies you work with because it tells you a lot about their financial health. If a customer has a high credit score, for example, their finances are in good shape. You’ll know how much credit you can comfortably offer them and feel more confident in their ability to settle invoices.

No, you don’t need permission to credit check a company. We partner with Experian to access credit data on your behalf. Credit checks through Capitalise for Business are anonymous and leave no trace. This means that their rating won’t be affected and your business won’t be linked to the credit check.
