in reports will differ according to the legal status of
the business - more information tends to be filed about
companies which are Limited companies, that is to say, they have the
status of limited liability. Similarly larger companies tend to disclose more information,
so a large Limited company or a PLC, a Public Limited Company,
will probably have the most information on public record. However there are business credit reports
on non-Limited businesses too.

on limited and non-limited businesses

A credit report on a
person, otherwise called an individual or
consumer, requires the searcher to have a license
to conduct such a search and to access the
financially sensitive information which is
contained within a consumer credit file. It is not
too hard to apply for permission to run these
types of searches, and once you complete the form
and make the necessary payment you will be given a
number that identifies you as being registered to
conduct such enquiries, and when you open an
account with a credit reference agency this
registration will enable them to give you access
to consumer data.
