What is credit scoring and how do you use it?

Using the information you have provided, together with details from a Credit Reference Agency, we assess your application and give it a score. This score is then matched alongside our 'acceptance' score, which is based upon detailed analysis of our experience with previous applicants.

If your application reaches the 'acceptance' score, your application is accepted. If it does not reach this score, it is refused. Credit scoring evaluates the risks attached to an application. This doesn't mean that a refused applicant is a bad payer, but simply means that our acceptance requirements haven't been met.
