What is a credit score? What is an Equifax Score?
Your Equifax Score is a summary of your credit information held by Equifax and indicates how finance and utility providers may view you when applying for credit. It is derived from information held on your credit report as held by Equifax when the score is requested. The Equifax Score is a number between 0-1200 and in simple terms, the higher your Equifax Score, the better your credit profile and the a lower credit risk.
What can be collected in a credit report is strictly regulated by the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth). We calculate the Equifax Score using private and public information collected directly from you as well as from credit providers and other agencies (e.g. repayment histories, court actions relating to debit and credit, insolvency and ASIC records).
Knowing your Equifax Score may help you negotiate a better rate with some lenders. You can also take steps to improve your Equifax Score, if it is low.
