We utilise a large number of subscriber databases to complete our work, which will include the following: Electoral Roll (1990-current), CCJs, Insolvency data, Directorships (Business Involvement) and Property Ownership information (including ownership details and purchase price where available).

We provide a variety of reports to suit your budget, but all include a credit recommendation, CCJs and any Director's details.

Our Limited Company reports are comprehensive with a score and credit limit but non limited businesses do not file financial data. However, we will provide where available, the trading address, Principal(s), number of employees, CCJs and as much information that is available to recommend a monthly credit limit.
