Credit Check Any UK or International Company

Red Flag Alert collects and enriches detailed data on every UK and international business.
Our credit checks provide accurate insights into the financial health of these companies.


Instant Access

Our API plugs into your CRM, giving you instant access to detailed, accurate company financial health information. This allows your team to quickly make well-informed credit decisions.


Real-Time Alerts

Most credit scores use out-of-date information. Our data is updated in real-time, allowing you to make better credit decisions. Set up alerts and you’ll immediately know when your customers’ creditworthiness deteriorates.


Reliable Data

Our credit scores use over 100 data points for every UK company. These include factors such as number of CCJs, date of latest accounts filed, cash on balance sheets, P&L account reserve and much more.


Clear Credit Ratings

We assign every business a rating, including gold, silver and bronze for healthy companies and one, two or three red flags for businesses at risk of failure. This allows you to take action to protect your company from financial risk.


Predictive scoring

Our scores are calculated by an innovative AI algorithm that uses 20 years of business data to predict each company’s future financial health.

Listen to how we have helped our customers

We love working closely with all our customers, helping them integrate and use data in their businesses. Hear what some of them say.

“Allows us to evaluate our customers credit score – particularly given the energy crisis... there has been a lot of value-added solutions they’ve brought to our sector. We want to make sure our customers are around in the next 2/3 years because our business projects itself on renewals.”


Exchange Utility

“Real time data is important when it comes to winding up petitions or legal action... looked at an account and it will say it was fine on Creditsafe but the next day there’s a problem. RFA gets their court information long before, every 15 minutes from the London Gazette. It is more current which helps us out... we are more confident rejecting slightly earlier.”
