In addition to the information recorded in the RAI, our company reports also include unpaid debts with public authorities and the most comprehensive information available on delinquency with financial institutions and large companies(ASNEF Empresas register), becoming the most efficient tool possible for combating corporate delinquency.

What is the RAI?

The RAI (Bad Debt Register) is a register comprising information on defaults by companies for amounts equal to or greater than 300,51 €.

This information was used exclusively by national banks and credit institutions in order to discover and evaluate the solvency of their clients before approving credit and other bank products.

axesor has received authorisation to act as a distributor providing unlimited access to the RAI, which means that through our reports you can discover the defaults recorded for any commercial company on this bad debt list.

Register entries come from unsettled receipts, recognised and signed by the company in question and therefore constituting enforceable obligations, as well as from receipts replacing bills of exchange and promissory notes expressing the consent of the deb.

Content of a RAI search

Online connection to the Bad Debt Register will bring up the following data on the company queried:

  • If default records exist:
    • Date of query.
    • Juridical form queried.
    • Number of entries in the RAI matching the NIF (tax ID) queried.
    • Total value of entries matching the NIF (tax ID) queried.
    • Date of most recent entry matching the NIF (tax ID) queried.
  • If no defaults are recorded the NIF (tax ID) queried will be shown alongside a result detailing zero register entries and the time and date of the query.
  • A third possible result is "Saldo 0" (Balance of 0). This means the query will bring up the total number of defaults recorded, but will assess their total value at zero. This is because the company has settled its defaults very recently, and these formerly delinquent debts will soon be erased from the RAI.

Cost of searching the RAI

The price of each query conducted is 4,50 €, irrespective of whether the result is positive, negative or returns a "balance of zero".
