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 premium 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.
Step 3: Grant Bronze, Silver, or Gold Verified Status
There are three levels of verification: Bronze, Silver, and Gold.
Step 4: Add Clutch Verified Symbol and Evaluation Data to Company Profile
Clutch Verified companies receive a checkmark on their company profile to signal their verified status to prospective clients.
We also add a "Verification" tab to your company profile that displays the data collected about your company.
