Credit allows a buyer to take possession of something now and pay for it later or over time. An integral part of granting credit information is requesting and analyzing a credit report. This report provides information in order to make a specific decision about granting credit to a company. An investigation, done correctly, has the goal of a seller obtaining accurate and timely information about a buyer, information that will lead to an appropriate decision for a seller in determining whether credit will or will not be approved, and if so, on what terms.
