What is credit information?

Credit information is used to assess a person's financial standing, ability to make payments and reliability. Generally, credit information is seen as data in credit information registers maintained by credit information companies and sold to those who ask for them. The purpose of credit information registers is to help creditors to avoid credit losses.

How do I know if I have payment default entries in the register?

The easiest way to get your own credit information is to use Suomen Luottotietohaku's online service. It is easy to use, reliable and inexpensive. The service provides you with a credit information report showing all payment defaults, amounts, creditors and the dates the defaults were entered and when they will be removed.

What is a payment default entry?

A payment default is registered when you fail to pay a bill or debt. The creditor is entitled to notify the credit information register of your payment default so that it is available to whoever searches your credit information. A mere late payment does not generate a payment default entry. The most common causes for payment defaults are consumer credits, judgments of default in payment demand matters and long-term distraint.

Which party maintain the credit information register?

In Finland, there are two bodies, which maintain a credit information register. The registers of these two actors are practically identical. Suomen Luottotietohaku provides credit information through Bisnode Finland.

When will the payment default entries be removed?

The entries in the register are primarily retained for 2-3 years, and a new entry lengthens the retention period. Paying the debt shortens the retention period. Suomen Luottotietohaku's online service allows you to easily get an inexpensive credit information report, which show the current situation of the payment defaults entered in the credit information register and their removal dates.

What should I do if there is an error in my credit information?

The most common reason for error is that the creditor has failed to notify both registers of the debt payment. In this case, you should contact the creditor directly and demand correction. To expedite the matter, attach the credit information report from Luottotietohaku to your message as documentation.
