Application to Join the Bureau
If you are interested in joining the Financial Clearing Bureau please complete the forms below.
- Why should
you join the Financial Clearing Bureau?
We believe that business needs comprehensive intelligence
on companies and people who may have civil judgments and/or
criminal records from the past and which or whom may not
be trusted with your funds or goods in the future. Businesses
should be vetting all their new employees, their potential
credit customers, and entities they are venturing into business
or partnerships with. Make sure you are in the know about
the people and companies you are dealing with.
- How does the
system work? Clients will become members
of an exclusive association which has as its objects the
mutual exchange of credit protection information. Once you
are a member of this "club" the Financial Clearing Bureau
will accept information on your bad debtors and make this
available to other members of the association, should they
require it. The Financial Clearing Bureau will also continue
to collect intelligence which is in the public domain and
which may assist clients from time to time. You submit your
enquiries in writing and we provide you with any positive
traces on the entity or persons being enquired about. You
as the client then decide whether to do business with them.
Our clients are required to sign a confidentiality clause
which will prevent your disclosure to or the publishing
of the information gleaned to any third party (including
the person enquired about).
- How do you
join? Be sure that the Financial Clearing
Bureau has the form of credit protection service you require.
We are not a credit rating agency - we provide historic
information on defaulters and leave you to make the decisions.
If this is what you require, then you need to contact the
Financial Clearing Bureau and arrange to meet with their
staff. You may do this through the forms facility below.
A representative from the Bureau will give you a run down
on the bureau and answer any other questions you may have.
If you still wish to join, then there is a standard contract
to be signed and fees to be paid to the Zimbabwe Financial
Clearing Association and the Financial Clearing Bureau.
Enquiries are charged on a per enquiry basis and clients
are billed monthly for their enquiries.
If you are not vetting your customers, and in some cases
your staff, before contracting with them, then you might be
in trouble already. We would suggest that you contact us and
arrange an interview with one of our staff or a director of
one of our associated interests. The Financial Clearing Bureau
is a must for you credit protection - but consider other aspects
of your business security while talking to us. If you are
interested in the services of the Financial Clearing Bureau,
or for that matter one or all of the services mentioned in
this brochure we would be only too happy to direct one of
the directors to determine your specific needs and tailor
these to the services that we can provide. Credit Protection
