Even in a low-risk credit situation, company research must be conducted. In these
low-risk cases, the company research typically needs to be quick and concise. With
Experian, you'll get reports on your suppliers or customers from our database of more
than 22 million businesses.
Our business verification report gives you a high-level view of a company's credit
profile. It allows you to research key company information, such as contact information,
sales figures, size, products/operations, credit summary, Uniform Commercial Code
filings, fictitious business names, and payment and collections history.
Go Beyond Business Tradelines to Make Informed Decisions
While tradelines will tell you the number of credit items reported to Experian,
they are only one factor in predicting a company's ability to pay its bills on time.
As a small business owner, you also will need to know the date that a company was
formally incorporated and established. This is where Experian's company research and
reports can help. Basic information such as this is needed to see if a company
is a legal enterprise. Credit, payment and collections data is important information
to examine in order to avoid taking on a bad credit risk.

creditworthy customers through company research while protecting your small business.
