Why has my D&B Failure Score changed?

The D&B Failure Score is dynamic, meaning that it is recalculated every time we collect a new piece of information about an organisation, or when information changes. For instance, any annual accounts filed at Companies House will be picked up and analysed normally within 2-3 weeks of these being filed. Once this analysis has been completed, they will be loaded onto our reports and the score may change as a result.


Another good example is the Payment history through the Dun & Bradstreet Trade Program. The Dun & Bradstreet Trade Partners provide us with this information on a monthly basis; however each trade partner may not necessarily provide us with this information on the same day each month. This means that through the month there may be various score changes.
