Your report is like a financial CV

They act like an explanation of your borrowing, showing a personal history of the credit you've had and the repayments you've made. Banks and other lenders use it when they are deciding whether to accept or refuse an application you’ve made to them for credit.

Things that appear on a report include:

  •   Credit accounts
  •   Credit applications
  •   Financial associations
  •   Bankruptcies
  •   Electoral Roll information
  •   County Court Judgments (CCJs)
  •   Individual Voluntary Arrangements (IVAs)

What your credit report will do for you

  •   If you are looking to borrow money – lenders will look at what it says about you. Are you good with your credit? Do you pay bills on time? Your report will show you all of this and tell you how to improve if you need to.
  •   Thinking about a new job or even moving house – other parties like potential employers or landlords can see the information on your credit report, so checking it regularly can help you make the right choices at the right time.
  •   Keeping your details safe and secure – identity theft and fraud are serious issues, so reviewing the information on your report to make sure it is all correct can be key to spotting if you are being targeted.
  •   Taking action for better choices – if you’ve run into financial trouble in the past, your credit report can give you expert guidance on where you went wrong and what to do now. You’ll have the knowledge and confidence to make decisions that are right for you.
