Fast and reliable credit reporting for Brokers

Centrix credit reports help brokers to make quick and confident risk assessments, while complying with the latest regulations. We hold the most comprehensive consumer credit information database in New Zealand – with credit information for over 4 million Kiwi consumers (95% of the adult population) and many credit-active businesses. This information is sourced from credit providers, third party data sources and debt collection agencies.

Using our in-depth credit reporting, you can accurately assess a customer’s financial position, simply and easily in a simple report. Running pre-checks on your customers helps you to choose the most suitable loan provider. It also gives you the highest chance of loan approval, with a streamlined application process (which means less paperwork for you), and faster, more reliable approvals for your customers.

Credit Check for Employment

Introducing BrokerCheck

Using BrokerCheck, you can access Comprehensive Credit Reporting (CCR) data in our consumer credit reports. You’ll be able to view defaults, enquiries, any company affiliations the individual has and insolvency records. You’ll also receive an easy-to-read credit score that provides a snapshot of an individual’s creditworthiness – the lower the number, the higher the risk.

In addition, CCR provides an enhanced view of a customer’s credit profile, including up to 24 months repayment history along with the account type, credit limit amount and account status.
Note: There is no impact to a customer’s credit score for using BrokerCheck to make an enquiry. Brokers must be a registered Financial Services Providers to access Comprehensive Credit Reporting (CCR).
