Check your own credit record

You can check your credit information for free, but if you want the information in a hurry you have to pay for a report.

Your credit information can affect how companies treat you, for example when you want to borrow money or get insurance.

Check your own credit record

It’s free to get a copy of your credit record but if you want the information quickly you’ll need to pay for it.

You can get a copy of your credit report from each of the 3 credit reporting companies in New Zealand:

What’s in your record?

Your record includes your payment history for:

  • credit cards
  • mortgages
  • car finance
  • hire purchases.

Your payment history for other bills like electricity, gas and phone accounts might also be on your record.

When your credit record is wrong

If your record is wrong, you might not be able to get credit.

When you get your record check it for incorrect information, such as:

  • credit accounts that you never applied for
  • payment defaults you did not know about, or
  • credit enquiries you never approved.

You can ask credit reporting companies to correct your information — each company has their own procedure for doing this.
