If you don’t, you won’t be able to get credit, leasing, or bill payments through various platforms, and you may be denied housing and jobs!
Financial data verification institutions scrutinise your actions related to the regularity of your payments and the assiduous respect of your commitments (e.g. ZEK/IKO, Cresura, Intrum, Creditreform, CRIF). They look to see what kind of risk profile you possess and what kind of rigour you have with your financial commitments.
What they are interested in?
Cleaning up some critical points may need manual actions and involvement of your creditor (the person you owe money to).
This is critical for your applications: whether to obtain a credit (leasing, mortgage, etc.), a credit card, housing and, in some cases, a job (police, medical field, teaching, etc.). The quality of your score is decisive.
The worse your credit score, the higher the rates that financial institutions will charge you.
There are registers in Switzerland that allow any organisation to know your credit rating (also called scoring). Banks, property managers, car dealers… any organisation lending money, renting real estate, leasing… consult these records before validating a decision. Needless to say, your score can work in your favor and against you if you are considered a bad payer.
Liquidity, solvency and creditworthiness are the 3 major criteria considered by the bank.
There is a positive difference between your cash inflow and your current expenses.
There are no negative reports to the Prosecution Office.
You have a positive history with the ZEK (Central Credit Office).
The cantonal debt enforcement registers, ZEK, Cresura, Intrum, Creditreform, CRIF, IKO are organizations that archive your late payments, negative ratings and negative codes filed against you, unpaid invoices, credits not repaid on time and all irregularities related to payments in connection with invoices, credits and credit cards.
The consumer credit law requires lending banks to check your data in these databases before accepting an application. Millions of payment orders and seizures are made every year in Switzerland. This shows the amount of information that these databases incorporate every day.
As all these organizations resell this data to banks in the form of a subscription for all companies wishing to check the creditworthiness of their customers … You can find yourself in a downward spiral by being registered with various institutions that use more or less intrusive criteria.
For example, in the CRIF database, there is a “lawsuits” section. Under this “official” part, there is a box for reporting by partner stores. If, for example, there are still open charges (you decided not to pay the reminders but only the initial invoice) or there was a delay in a payment even though it didn’t go to court, or you had to renegotiate a payment arrangement due to unforeseen financial circumstances, you could be listed as a bad payer! Only a professional knows exactly what these codes mean and what can be done as well as the deadlines to be respected before launching a new financial operation (credit application in particular), in order to benefit from a more advantageous risk class and minimized rates. If you are considered a good risk, you will get better rates and it depends on your record with the economic intelligence agencies.
There are many reasons for this, such as human or technical error, or a delay in updating your status. It is important to note that the data may change based on a withdrawn complaint, a cleared payment or a completed seizure. However, it is important that these data correspond to your reality. This is often not the case.
Lately, some cases are open to interpretation to avoid a double penalty effect.
Frequently, history is misinterpreted or noted in these records. Our teams have extensive experience in this field and know all the workings of the systems involved.
Deleting negative data and ensuring that the annotations are accurate and representative of your current situation will improve your score so that you have the right credibility with decision-making bodies. You can then benefit from better rates and more advantageous solutions.
We provide you with the information and help you take the necessary steps to ensure that you understand the negative codes and the steps to take.
It is very difficult to be granted a loan, a credit, a lease, a credit card, a rental agreement, or even monthly payment facilities if you are registered in the central economic intelligence systems. You may be denied credit, leasing, a credit card or be given less advantageous terms.
But not only a bad credit card history! Any payment that has gone wrong can bring you a lot of trouble.
Yes, this too can make you ineligible for many programs, credits, housing and even in some professional fields! Companies prefer to sell their invoices to companies that spend 100% of their time reminding customers, issuing reminders, ordering payments and taking legal action! Why ? For their image and to be able to focus on their core business, lowering management costs while lowering their risk of non-payment by customers.
