What Is Clutch's Verification Program?

Verification is a process of aggregating additional research about a company's business registration, legal history, credit background, and client feedback.

Step 1: Clutch Analysts Collect Registration Information for your Company

After a company becomes a Clutch+ profile or sponsor, Clutch Analysts gather business registration information to confirm their legal entity is registered and active. Registration is confirmed through each state’s Secretary of State website and a supplemental legal certificate from the company.

Step 2: Check Business's Registration, Legal History, Credit, Feedback

Information we verify includes the following:

  • Business entity name
  • Status (active/inactive)
  • Jurisdiction of formation
  • ID number
  • Date of business formation

Verification also includes the Clutch credit check. Payment and legal filings data are compiled from consumer credit reporting agencies to confirm a company is in good standing and has no significant derogatory credit marks.
