it possible to get higher credit ratings?
The essence of developing a good credit rating is to repay all your regular borrowings on
time. Pay bills and monthly accounts by Direct Debit, and don't overlook credit and store
card payments too. If you have hire purchase credit make sure this is paid promptly too.
Late payments are something that quickly has an adverse impact on your credit rating. Do
make sure that you are listed on the Voters Roll at your present residential address. If
possible, try not to move address too frequently as lenders prefer to see some stability
in this respect. If you know you can afford to repay credit, then you may consider opening
accounts for modest amounts of credit that are within your means, and pay the amounts off
promptly. This will show future lenders that you have had credit and were able to repay
it. Always keep the amount of credit you borrow well under control, as if you allow your
credit to get too high then this will also negatively impact on your credit rating.
What information appears in a
A consumer credit rating report confirms your name and address, and whether or not you are
recorded on the Voters Roll. Any previous addresses that have been recorded for you will
also appear. Your credit record and payment history for certain credit facilities will be
revealed and any detrimental credit information recorded about you. If you get a credit
report on a business it will normally confirm general facts about the business and how
long it has been trading, and its credit status. If the business is a limited company the
latest filed accounts are usually summarised and assessed and details of directors and
shareholders are shown. Any holding company or controlling parent company is also
identified. Mortgages, charges and debentures can be shown. Companies House notices such
as Striking Off Notices, and details of Winding Up or Liquidation or Receivership are
displayed. Corporate credit reports also include a credit status assessment and credit
ratings based on the latest information available.
