How to download your Experian credit report

Download your credit report online

When we ask clients to provide their credit report to us we would usually suggest Experian.co.uk as a suitable provider.

We do require the complete credit report, details of the summary or the Experian credit score figure are of no value to us.

We provide a secure upload link to enable clients to transfer their credit file to us safely and securely. Yet sometimes clients are unsure as to how to download their credit report in the correct format in order to it transfer to us.

How to download your full Experian credit file

We carried out this demo on a pc using an Internet Explorer 10 browser. You can also download the file using Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome browsers*.

Firstly you need to log into your Experian account (we find Google Chrome a better option as a browser for this task as we have experienced problems printing the report from Internet Explorer). If you don’t have an Experian account, you need to register initially and obtain log in details.

Once you log in you will arrive at your summary screen which looks like this:

SUMMARY SCREEN

Remember, we need the full credit report.

A little way down the summary screen on the right hand side is an orange button where you can request to view your full credit report.

The full report will usually open in your browser and will look like this:

FULL REPORT

Your browser now contains the full credit report which you can scroll through, but we need an electronic copy of this to upload. The ideal format is PDF (portable document format) which can easily be accessed using your browser.

Look at the top right of the page for the ‘Print full report’ link. (Avoid the ’email report link’, you do not want to be trying to email your credit report)

This will open a printable copy of your report in your browser.
