What information will I get from a MultiPower Express Search?

A MultiPower Express Search can be completed on Companies and provides a report that combines:

  • A current ASIC Company Extract
  • A search of public record data on the Company
  • Where available, a Equifax on-file Company Search.
  • A search of the directors' commercial files
  • A credit score based on the above information (only PTY, PTY LTD and Business entities can be scored. Additionally, organisations under a strike-off action will not produce a score).

It is recommended that the MultiPower Express search be utilised for small to medium size organisations.


How is credit score calculated?

Credit scores are produced by analysing over 250 characteristics according to the industry accepted and proven statistical processes. The Equifax MultiPower Express scorecard outlines the key contributing factors impacting on the assessment and may include factors such as:

  • History of type of Credit sought
  • Number of Enquiries
  • Shopping Pattern
  • Company Information
  • Age of File and Pattern of Enquiries
  • Industry Characteristics
  • Director Derogatory Information recorded
  • Default Information recorded
  • Court Writ Information recorded
