It's a troubling fact. Even companies that appear stable and dependable can go
bankrupt, putting your small business at risk. Today's economy has led to some necessary

Experian's CreditScoreSM business information reports give you a wide
range of credit data on your potential customers, partners and suppliers. They allow
you to research key business information, such as contact details, sales figures,
size, products/operations, credit summary, Uniform Commercial Code filings, fictitious
business names, and payment and collections history. In addition, you will obtain
information on judgments, tax liens and bankruptcies. Experian® also includes
credit scoring in these business information reports to aid in your decision making.
Actual payment and collections history is more detailed than in Experian's BizVerifySM
report. Commercial banking, insurance and leasing details include any information
we have available about financial relationships the company may have with a bank,
insurance company or lessor. Generally, this may include the name of the company's
primary bank, insurance companies that have issued policies to it and the details
of leases that have been reported.

business's current trade experiences and the presence or absence of collection data
and derogatory public record filings. We then classify the business into one of five
