When it comes to running a business, maintaining a good credit score is essential. A company’s credit score not only affects its ability to secure funding but also impacts its reputation and future prospects. But with so many credit bureaus and scoring models available, which company credit score is the best?
There is a full list of active credit bureaus in South Africa, with each of them collecting and evaluating data on businesses’ credit history to generate a credit score. However, the credit scoring models used by each bureau may differ, resulting in variations in credit scores.
So, which credit bureau’s score is the most reliable? The answer is that there is no single “best” company credit score. Each bureau uses its own scoring model, which evaluates creditworthiness based on different factors.

It’s also essential to consider whether the credit bureau complies with local regulations and industry standards, such as the National Credit Act and the Protection of Personal Information Act. By carefully evaluating these factors, your business can make an informed decision on which credit bureau is best suited for your specific needs.
