The bureau is also offering free membership to those who register before June 2008, CGC said in a statement here today.

It also details the benefits for members, list of business enterprises and range of products/services, compliance guidelines as well as the frequently asked questions.

The establishment of the SME Credit Bureau is to assist SMEs to position themselves strategically and benchmark against the more established SMEs and businesses in the country as well as to improve the overall perception of the SMEs amongst the financial institutions, credit grantors, their existing or potential customers, business partners and with many others who may want to do business with them.

Through the bureau, members will also gain fast and hassle-free access to comprehensive information of prospective or existing customers and their credit ratings, increased business opportunities arising from greater transparency, connectivity to business partners, financiers and credit grantors as well as sound financial management.
