What you as an entrepreneur need a credit report for

You would like to know whether a potential customer is as creditworthy as this customer alleges?

Will this customer be able to pay your bills tomorrow, too? For 85% of all insolvencies, the KSV1870 rating indicates an increased risk as early as 12 months in advance. However, poor credit standing does not mean you have to forego the business. In this case, there are measures you can take to protect yourself, such as advance payment or retention of title.

A long-standing business partner has recently been slow to make payments?

Would you be able to confirm a larger shipment at the usual terms and conditions? In a case like this, a KSV1870 credit report also provides clarity. After all, 80% of all uncollectable accounts receivable are related to regular customers!

 

Your company is participating in a tender?

Often, this requires voluntary disclosure of information. In any case, it makes a good impression on your potential customer, if you can supply evidence of your financial stability based on a credit report provided by KSV1870. Contact our information experts directly to ensure that all relevant information is taken into account. Please complete the KSV1870 Business Datasheet as well and provide us with all the relevant data.

You are awarding a contract and want to know whether the supplier has good credit standing?

Will the supplier be able to handle deliveries completely and accurately? A KSV1870 credit report supplies the necessary clarity and allows you to avoid difficulties as a result of supply bottlenecks.

You would like more information about your competitors?

You are interested in your competitor's key indicators, e.g. revenue, number of employees or export? A KSV1870 credit report supplies you with all the important facts. Ideally position your company on the market by identifying strengths and weaknesses, but also opportunities and risks.

You would like to thoroughly vet a new business partner to ensure you are exercising proper due care?

And you would like to comply with the legal requirements for money laundering checks at the same time? Then make use of the Beneficial OwnerReport. In combination with a KSV1870 credit report, the information it supplies provides the perfect protection against payment default.

Some of the data originates from public sources (e.g. company register, land register, business licence, balance sheets, insolvency information, central register of residents) or are collected during research (e.g. payment behaviour, subject access request, bank information, etc.).

The assessment always takes all the information available into account. The KSV1870 rating is calculated from this data. If negative information is available, it will also influence the KSV1870 rating.

If you have more recent documents or would like to inform us about changes, please provide us with the following documents for a new assessment:

  • Lists of balances (also intrayear)
  • Tax clearance certificates or
  • "Account statement" from Area Health Fund (GKK) and the Tax Office
  • Reference e.g. suppliers, landlords, IT service providers
  • Asset statements
  • OILs (outstanding receivables for which recovery efforts are currently ongoing by a debt collection agency or lawyers)
  • Current balance sheets incl. profit & loss accounts
  • Letter of comfort

The more current and comprehensive the present documents are, the more accurate a new assessment of your rating can be.

There can be several reasons for this, e.g. the company is still in the process of being established or a different name was provided. Try to look for the company using the company address, perhaps the VAT number or the company register number. You are also welcome to engage our services to carry out company research for you.

This is one of our services. Within one month of your online query or delivery of the newly researched information, we will let you know automatically of any change to rating, company status, payment method or assessment or whether the company has reported insolvency. It incurs no costs for you.

For a period of up to 6 months following an online query or delivery of newly researched information, the Rating Alarm will keep you automatically informed if the rating changes. If you are interested, you can then query additional information at a charge.

We do not have the VAT numbers of all the companies and, additionally, not all companies have a VAT number. In such cases, please search for the company using the name or another means of identification (e.g. company register number).

In a few isolated cases, due to special circumstances, a company may not be assigned a specific rating number at the time of research. Even if these companies have a rating of "0", the delivery of the documents still remains payable.

Yes, that is possible, but the company register and the land register data for Austrian companies is always provided in German.

No, enquiries can also be made using Business Search. However, KSV1870 membership comes with a series of advantages and services, such as vouchers for free credit reports, a price advantage of up to 40% for queries, online access to the databases of our international partners and much more.
