Q: Why is my Equifax score different?

A: Each Credit Reference Agency uses its own assessment criteria to generate your credit score, so each one is likely to show you a different number. It is not a reflection on which Agency has the most accurate data, more a reflection on how they interpret your information.

Equifax's credit score can range from 300-850, while others can run from 0-1000, which is another reason why your score might not look the same when looking at reports from different Credit Reference Agencies.

Q: How can I see information from Equifax?

A:You can see the information that appears on your Equifax Credit Report, along with data from three other Credit Reference Agencies on your checkmyfile Multi-Agency credit report. It's the UK's most detailed Credit Report, and you can contact our Professionally-Qualified Credit Analysts if you have any questions or need any assistance.
