Regarded as a first line of defence against fraud, the Commercial Entity Validation service from Equifax gives you peace of mind that you are dealing with a legitimate business, and reveals the people behind it.

A company check accesses ASIC's company register revealing company ownership and control. A business names search reveals the owner of the business name.

Powered through a single online portal, IQ Connect, you also get office holder details, and business structure insights through a suite of Australian Company Register derived reports to gain a more trusted picture of how your customer operates.

Commercial Entity Validation reports from Equifax give you the complete picture of who you’re doing business with, helps reduce risk and meet AML/CTF requirements.
