A soft credit check, a preliminary review of specific information in your credit report, is crucial in business credit decisions. Companies conduct soft searches to determine the likelihood of your application being approved without scrutinising your credit history. This type of check does not affect your credit score or ability to obtain credit. In the main, business credit checks throughout the industry are all soft, providing you with reassurance and confidence in your credit decisions.

A hard credit check is when a company conducts a comprehensive search of your credit report, with each check recorded. Any company searching your report can see that you’ve applied for credit. Too many hard credit checks over a short period can affect your credit score for six months, potentially reducing your ability to get approved for credit in the future. On the other hand, a complex credit search involves a detailed review of your credit record, which may also impact your credit score and eligibility
