Onfile Business Information

Get comprehensive information on your debtors, helping you better assess the associated business risk

Make smarter business decisions with access to greater insights

When evaluating business credit, your ability to make the right decisions is only as good as the data driving those decisions. As past performance is highly indicative of future risk, TransUnion Onfile information provides the detailed insight you need to make optimised decisions as you acquire customers. These comprehensive reports reduce the need to gather information from multiple sources and help you quickly identify which businesses to work with and those to avoid.

TransUnion solutions help you understand the profile and risk of a business and its principals. Choose from several standard formats, including an onfile offering containing historical data packaged based on your specific requirements. We can also customise the information you require into a standard report that can be used for low-risk assessments or a more comprehensive report for high-risk assessments.
