What is a CCJ?

CCJ means County Court Judgement. It is a court order taken out by a creditor against a company. The creditor goes to the court to act against the company that owes them money.

The court order basically tells a company to pay back the money it owes to a debt. There is a specific time frame allotted to the company to respond, which is usually 14 days from the date of issue.

When a company receives a CCJ or County Court Judgement, it stays on the Register of Judgements (including Orders and Fines) for a period of six years. This information helps finance companies and banks to decide whether or not to give that company a loan or credit.

Therefore, having a CCJ registered against your company can have a serious impact on a company’s credit score. If the company ignores a CCJ, the court can then take more serious legal actions against it.

How to check if a company has a CCJ?

There are two ways of running a limited company CCJ check. One is by using a credit agency and the other is to use a public record source. Whichever way you choose, it is highly recommended you do a company CCJ check before arriving at your business decision.

CCJ information about companies is available on public records or accessed from a paid website online. To carry out these searches online through the website, it is important that you have the necessary details about the limited company such as the company’s full name and the officially registered address of the company. You can do all of this with DataGardener.

Running a report of a company includes all CCJs filed against that them as well as such as the full name of the limited company, its officially registered address, the court order details (e.g. court number and case number of the specific court order), the total sum of money involved in the debt.

The report will answer all your questions such as the number of CCJs that the company has, how long ago the CCJs were issued when the company was able to pay those debts, and so on.

Why do you need to do a CCJ check on a company?

If you are seriously thinking about going into a business with a particular company, then it is highly recommended that you run a company CCJ check.

It is necessary because the report will tell you whether the company concerned has failed to pay its debts or not. If the company you are thinking of dealing with has failed to keep on top of its accounts or failed in its obligation to pay its debts, then it might turn out to be a serious credit risk for you in the future.

You want to check that because it is always desirable to steer clear of companies with persistent cash flow problems and a history of not repaying its debts. It can even mean the start of a slippery slope when it comes to trading.

If a company pays the CCJ in full, it will show up in the public CCJ register. However, the record will not be removed from the register. If the company pays the debt in full within one month of receiving the court order, it can have its record removed from the register. The court will issue a certificate of satisfaction and then only the company can have its data removed from the register.

Why Do You Need A Company Search?

Great question! And one that we are here to answer.
If you start dealing with a new supplier, distributor or customer then you take a step into the unknown. In business, the unknown is two things –
1. Exciting
2. Scary
Often the second is a stronger emotion than the first. But we take a large chunk of the fear away by helping you discover all you need to know about that company. Our company search services help you to understand the background of a business, whether you’re relying on them for parts, looking to partner them in distribution or buying from them.
We have all these questions and more in our mind –
• Will they come through with what they promise?
• Are they financially viable?
• Will they be there in 6 months time?
• Is our money safe?
And we should have these questions bouncing around inside our head. Being cautious is not about taking no risks at all. It is about gathering as much relevant information as possible to make informed decisions. That’s what we do in business, isn’t it? We think through our action and make decisions based on the facts.
But with a company search, the facts are not always readily available. You need a partner who will go out there and do this for you, saving you time, effort and money. You need DataGardener.
Let us take the strain here. We have the systems, knowledge and experience to help you gather all the relevant information – and quickly. Time is money in business, we know that; you know that. So, rely on us to get you moving as quickly as possible.
