A Credit Reference Request Form is a document completed to ask any company or financial institution you have worked with at some point in time for a reference required to obtain credit from a third party.

Whether you are opening an account in a new bank, preparing to enter into a transaction with another party, or looking to rent an apartment, prepare a Request for Credit Reference - the document will provide your potential lender or counterpart with financial details - items on your credit history, tax debts, and potential defaults.
Before you complete a request for a credit reference, consult with your future service provider or lender to see whether they have special instructions or templates to fill out. For instance, they may prepare a list of questions with "yes" and "no" answers to facilitate their background checks. If the Credit Reference Form does not comply with the lender's requirements, it will not be useful for you. Before you send a Credit Reference Request, draft a Credit Report Authorization Form for your prospective lender - it will allow them to look into your company and learn more about your creditworthiness.
Here is how you prepare a Credit Reference Request:
Prepare several Credit Reference Requests and mail them to various organizations you have dealt with in the past or at the moment. Do not wait for one specific reference, especially if you are looking for a trade reference. Note that a bank Credit Reference Request is easier to obtain - while a business owner can simply deny your request, a banking institution will likely supply you with much-needed information.
