Credit Reporting - A. V. Knowles & Co.
The Credit Bureau of Trinidad & Tobago - Click here to submit an enquiry
The Credit Bureau of T&T provides to its members, (financial institutions as well as individuals) credit profiles and assessments in respect of any person, firm or company on which information is available in its database. Our database is comprised of over 350,000 records, and is continuously increasing in number and scope of data. We also enter your collection accounts into our database, and this information is shared with other members who utilize the Credit Bureau.
This has proven to be a very cost effective method of making delinquents pay; i.e.. A person (whose delinquency is listed with the Credit Bureau) applies for a loan or hire purchase and the Lender/Seller puts through a standard credit check to the Credit Bureau. The previous delinquency is reported, and the individual cannot acquire a new loan or hire purchase unless he/she pays off his old debt. In other words, his/her name has been listed, so he/she immediately pays that debt because he/she wants to get more credit. Such information is accessible to members through our computer system, via modem, or from any of our account representatives.
Our information on credit worthiness about any individual is as current as possible, due to the exchange of information between members and the Bureau, and through the complement of our other two divisional databases: A. V. Knowles Debt Collection Agency and HP Register Limited. We presently receive an average of ten thousand (10,000) Credit applications per month.
NB: All information furnished by the company, either voluntarily or at the request of a Member, shall be kept confidential between both parties.
