Applicant or vendor vetting

TPN Credit Bureau’s 8-in-1 SmartCheck provides a credit profile that includes an affordability assessment, traditional credit payment information, employment history, higher education qualifications through PURQ and our unique debtor payment profile to indicate a higher risk of poor service delivery or collections.

Identity verification

Combat identity theft and block fraudulent documents from slipping through in an application. Confirm whether an applicant is who they say they are by comparing a live photo with the Department of Home Affairs with real time Identity Biometrics. Recent amendments to the Financial Intelligence Act have placed an additional onus on businesses to verify the accuracy of collected documents with a third party.  

TPN Business

Verified online bank statements (VOBS)

Eliminate the need for supporting documents by making it easier for clients to apply and harder for chancers to commit fraud. Verify an applicant’s income and their actual expenditure. Request 6 months’ bank statements directly from the applicant’s bank on the secure TPN Verified Online Bank Statements platform.

Payment collection

TPN Schools

Payment collection

Kick your collections off correctly with a legally compliant Letter of Demand that has an impressive impact on debtor payment behaviour.  

Move forward knowing that courts across South Africa accept TPN Letters of Demand and TPN Letters of Cancellation as binding documents for all legal action.  

Send your Letters of Demand via registered post, SMS and email directly from the TPN system.  

Load a Negative Listing on the credit bureau at no cost. Negative Listings motivate debtors to settle their outstanding payments by lowering their credit score and making it difficult to transact with another business without settling their debt first.
