The Building Industry Credit Bureau (BICB) is an
organisation. We act as a conduit for members to
share accurate financial trading and credit-related
information via a secure online database. All our
members are suppliers or subcontractors to the
Building & Construction Industry.
Construction is the third-largest industry in Australia
for employment and its GDP (Gross Domestic
Product) contribution. Unfortunately, it is also the
second-largest industry for corporate insolvencies,
with a pre-pandemic five-year average of 1,590 per
BICB is the only national organisation with the
volume of industry-specific trading data. Our
trading history database shows how an entity is
paying its accounts over time with other BICB
members. Seeing payment patterns to multiple
suppliers enables you to determine whether you
offer credit to a customer or not.
