The payment history section of the report is grouped according to the NACM location responsible for gathering the information. The most recent payment history by reporting company is displayed within the grouping.

In the next section of the report, payment history is grouped by month and by quarter, from most current to oldest. This section of the report reveals whether payment history is steady, improving or worsening.

Current and prior year total percentage past due is graphically displayed, making it easy to contrast and compare payment history trends. A business credit score and risk class are included.

What is the Business Credit Score?

The report includes a business credit score – the CIC Network Score. The scoring model was designed to predict late payments and severe delinquency, looking forward 6 months. The predictive variables include current aging status, historical aging (including trends and variance in payment trends) and forty other business characteristics.

The report also includes summary graphs for two years of delinquency percentage and a year of DBT (days beyond terms). These clearly illustrate payment patterns.

As available, your NACM National Trade Credit Report may also contain Alerts, public record, and corporate data.
