Overall Credit

The key feature is a highly accurate Credit Score (Scorecard) using a number of algorithms and credit rating variables to create a credible, and reliable, Score on which to make your assessment. You will also see a percentage prediction on the likelihood of a negative outcome.


The detailed information in CheckMate reports covers information about Vendor Defaults, Judgments, CreditWorks Enquiries, Public & Debtor Notices, and vendor payment data. The report also uses data relating to Directors Personal Credit Score.

Highly predictive
risk assessment

A Company’s Scorecard is a highly predicative assessment of credit risk. It’s based on a numeric scale from 0 to 1,000. The lower the Scorecard value, the greater the likelihood of the company having a financial failure in the future.

16 different

A company’s predicted ‘Negative Outcome Rating’ is expressed as a % chance of default, receivership, or liquidation in the next 18 months. To determine a company’s rating we consider many variables including Companies Office status, payment behaviour, industry type risk, and more.


The report also contains information on the number of CreditWorks subscribers giving credit to the customer, the length of time it is taking the customer to pay their debts on average, any defaults or judgments, and what industries the customers debt exposure is in.

Office data

The report will cover the latest Company Office information, (directors, shareholders, and director affiliations to any other companies they may have been involved with) as well as all PPSR registrations on the company.

Considering a second-hand purchase
for either business or personal use?

Then it might pay to do a PPSR search

Search the PPSR?
Check for any charges against a specific asset such as vehicles, equipment or machinery, or see who else is supplying goods or lending finance to a company or individual, with a search on the Personal Property Securities Register.

What is the PPSR?
The PPSR is effectively an online noticeboard where you can register a legal claim to personal property, and check if there is any debt or obligation attached to goods you may wish to buy.
