What is CIBIL Commercial Report and CIBIL Rank?

CIBIL Commercial Report

Much as a CIBIL score refers to an individual's lending value, a trade report by CIBIL underlines a company's lending worth. The CIBIL commercial report is therefore a systematic declaration reflecting an organization's financial health in terms of information obtained from banks and financial institutions. This detailed report is further used for assessing a company's creditworthiness when a commercial loan is needed.

The following information is included in a CIBIL commercial report:

  • Company background: Include background information on the company, such as the legal establishment, branches, ownership, and operating years.
  • Financial information: Financial data that decide the company's credit standards.
  • Financial history: Finance info, including payments, collections, income production, and more relevant to the financial history of the company. Besides these, the CIBIL rank is also essential. A rank of CIBIL resembles a score of CIBIL. It numerically summarises the company's CCR. Just like the score of CIBIL is between 300 and 900, a CCR ranges from 1 to 10, where 1 is the best possible. Only businesses with Rs.10 lakh credit exposure to Rs.10 crore are granted this designation. When you get closer to 1 the higher your chances are for a business loan to be secured.


CIBIL Rank is equivalent to the CIBIL score given to individuals, provided to commercial organizations. It sums up the complete Company Credit Report (CCR) on a scale of 1 to 10 in one digit. Basically, the credit rank shows the chance of default payments. Therefore lower the ranking, the more likely a loan is. Therefore, 1 is the highest possible ranking. It should be remembered, however, that a credit rank is not allocated to all firms. The credit rank is applicable to only companies with loan exposure of 10 lakh to 50 crores.
