Five reasons for knowing your credit history

You have had loans before, and you need another one

Before applying for a new loan, check your credit history, in order to make sure that the information on already paid-off or open loans is accurate and up-to-date. This will prevent an unexpected rejection and save you time. Your credit history is provided free of charge, once per year.

Your credit application has been declined

80% of the time a credit application is turned down due to a negative credit history. Sometimes the borrower is not even aware of existing problems in their credit history. It may be insignificant debts on an old credit card, which was overdue and increased, because of accrued penalties and fines, or fraudulent loans opened with lost or fake documents. If there has been a mistake, we will tell you how to fix it. Even if you had overdue payments in the past, you can always improve your credit history.

You are concerned about credit fraud using your documents

Obtain a credit history to check all the loans in your name, and make sure there are no loans that you are not aware of. Activate credit history notifications in the Diya application or activate the StatusControl service, to receive notifications if someone tries to get a loan in your name, and be able to promptly prevent such attempts.
In order to further protect yourself from having new loans opened in your name, activate the FREEZE option (available as part of the StatusControl service).

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a credit history and its purpose?

A credit history is the information about your loans and their repayment history, obtained by the bureau from banks, finance and leasing companies, credit unions and other financial institutions. The data about every loan is stored in a credit history for a period of 10 years after the borrower has paid-off a loan.

In addition to the actual information on loans, the credit history contains related information – identification data of the person, information about existing enforcement proceedings, in which the person appears as a debtor, a register of credit history requests by lenders and other organizations, information about the person’s documents registered as lost, comments, etc.

When applying for a loan, the lender obtains your credit history in order to:

  • check the availability of current and paid-off loans,
  • check debts for open loans,
  • check the availability of current overdue payments,
  • analyze the discipline of paying off loans in the past,
  • analyze the frequency of loan applications and the nature of loans,
  • check the related information about you.

This data allows the lender to assess the risks of granting a loan.

The presence of existing overdue payments, systematic failure to adhere to a payment schedule in the past, or simply a large number of currently open loans, indicates a high risk of default on a loan, and therefore may be the reason for rejection.

On the contrary, the presence of closed loans, paid-off without violations of a payment schedule, indicates that the borrower will most likely repay a new loan without any violations.

The absence of a credit history does not allow for drawing a conclusion about the reliability of the borrower, so the lender can only agree on a small loan amount or credit limit on the card.

Why your credit history can be missing in the Unified Register of Credit Histories (URCH), but present in the Ukrainian Bureau of Credit Histories (UBCH)?

UBCH has the largest database of credit histories in Ukraine – more than 88 million. We cooperate with all major finance and credit institutions in the country, and with the most of microfinance organizations, and also use the data from open registries.

There are other bureaus of credit histories in the country, each with a unique list of credit reporting partners. It can usually be found on the website of the relevant bureau.

Several Ukrainian bureaus have teamed up in an association, and created the «Unified Register of Credit Histories». UBCH is not a member of this association, so the data about you in the UBCH database will not be displayed, when checked in this registry.
