We will be happy to assist you, just give us a call or send us an email.
Once we receive your membership request, we will send you your login data for My KSV by email within one working day. You can then conduct credit enquiries instantly and access insolvency information and your orders.
If you want to access information without being a member only once, you have the option of doing so using Business Search.
However, a membership offers you much more attractive prices, online access to the KSV1870 business database as well as to international databases and new research on any company worldwide. The vouchers for free credit reports are particularly attractive.
For details on the differences between Membership and Business Search, please click here: Request Information
As a member, you can avail of both services, each of which comes at a more favourable rate than when charged separately using Business Search. With MemberLine for example, your price advantage for credit reports amounts to approx. 25%. If you have a greater need for information, BusinessLine may be the best option for you. In this case, the BusinessLine fee guarantees you a price advantage for queries of up to 40% compared to Business Search. For information about what option is best for you, just give us a call. We will be happy to advise you!
We aim to send your access data to the email address you indicated within one working day. In most cases, we succeed. If, in exceptional cases, it takes longer, your kind understanding will be much appreciated.
Kindly request a new initial password by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once received, please copy it from the email – without spaces – and paste it into the login screen. For security reasons, we ask you to change it to a personal password immediately following initial login.
We will happy to take care of this for you at no charge, providing any number of additional users you require. Once you have provided us with first and family name, email address and telephone number of the new users, they will receive their access data from us by email.
In this context, we would like to point out that login data is personal and may not be disclosed to third parties for security reasons. Likewise, we ask you to kindly notify us of any changes or employee departures.
Membership is valid for one calendar year at a time. If you no longer require membership, please just send us a written notification by October 31st. Your membership will then cease at the end of December of the same year. If you only became a member on September 1 of that year or later, your membership will cease at the end of December of the following year.
