Dispute FAQs

My company's business credit report contains incorrect information. What should I do?
This business report contains financial and non-financial information reported by third parties. Equifax has taken great care to report this information correctly. The Business report is designed to capture the complete history of the business including payment performance and public record information. A change of ownership, a change of legal entity type (for example, sole proprietor to LLC), a change of location, an expansion to additional locations, or other common business events do not eliminate historical data regarding the business.

Equifax provides a dispute process to address any perceived inaccuracies on the report. The dispute process is not intended to provide the business an opportunity to dispute and request the removal of accurate historical information (positive or negative) about the business. Additionally, only that information contained in the Public Records and Bureau Data sections of the report may be changed as a result of a dispute. However, your business does have the opportunity to provide a statement of explanation that can be added as a comment to another section of the report. The comment may be reviewed and/or used by recipients of a business report to help understand your business' past history. Depending on the nature of the statement, Equifax may require supporting documentation.

If you believe there is any inaccuracy with the report’s information, please log into your member center account and Contact Us via one of the options listed there. We will work with you to determine the details of the dispute and supply you with a Research Request form. Once you know the details of your dispute you will need to complete the Research Request Form and send it to us. Upon receipt of the completed Research Request Form, Equifax will forward a request for verification to the reporting entity. After completion of the verification process, Equifax will notify you in writing of the results.

I have submitted changes to my business credit report. How soon will my report be updated?
We will notify in writing of the result of our investigation, typically within 45 - 60 days after receipt of your dispute.
