  • A valid CIPC registration number registered to a business.
  • The client, (defaulter) must have a signed and legal credit agreement in place with the organisation.
  • The organisation must have performed the correct verifications and compliance checks on the entity/consumer.
  • An affordability assessment must be performed on the consumer/entity, with their written consent prior to a credit facility being allocated.

A default listing can be done via pbVerify when:

  • A valid signed credit agreement is in place.
  • The client has been given 90 days to settle their debt.
  • A section 129 letter/final demand letter has been sent to the customer, if they have not paid within the said 90 days.
20 working days after final demand letter was submitted, the customer can then be listed on pbVerify.
