Questions about the RiskChecker

The creditworthiness of a company refers to its ability to obtain credit, indicating whether the company is capable of making payments. If the company can settle its invoices promptly and in full, its creditworthiness is generally good.

With poor creditworthiness, there's a risk of the company becoming insolvent. Consequently, it might be unable to deliver the services you've ordered, or only do so in a limited capacity.

Any advance payments made can be claimed through the insolvency process. You might only receive a small portion (the quota) back. The process often takes a long time

The KSV1870 Rating indicates the creditworthiness. Specifically, it indicates the likelihood of insolvency, also referred to as the 'probability of default.'

The KSV1870 Rating is divided into 7 levels. The higher the value, the greater the risk of insolvency. Values below 400 suggest an average to low risk. As the values reach 400 and above, the risk increases. At 700, the company is already insolvent.

Please note: The KSV1870 Rating can change daily. It's a snapshot based on the available data at that moment.

The KSV1870 Rating is determined by approximately 20 factors, such as balance sheets, collection cases, insolvency information, and more. All factors are weighted according to scientific-statistical models, resulting in the value of the KSV1870 Rating.
