    Hi,

    I am wondering, is there a set credit score you get deducted for each credit application?

    And is there a set rate for your credit score to increase over time?

    Thanks

    There's two things. A credit report which reports when you apply for credit and when you are late or default on credit contracts. A credit score which is a lenders algorithm made up of your credit report, your age sex marital status suburb job etc.


    Have a bad credit report means it's hard to get a loan, but bad is only when you have previously defaulted on a payment.

    Credit score is trickier as the algorithm changes for each lender and over time. For instance previously working for Toyota might have rated highly, lately less so.
