Frequently asked questions

Checking a company’s credit score is easy with Capitalise for Business. Simply head to the Monitor Risks tab of your account, tell us which company you want to check and we’ll do the rest. Company checks like this are anonymous and leave no trace.

If you have a free Capitalise for Business plan, you can check the credit risks of 20 customers without paying a penny. By upgrading to a Pro plan, you’ll unlock the full Experian credit profiles of 100 customers –as well as a wide range of extra features and benefits – for a monthly subscription of just £29 (excl VAT).

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.
