Determining Your Credit Standing.

Many people think that credit reports and credit scores are one and the same. In fact, a credit score is derived from the information contained in credit reports - and your credit score determines your credit standing.

When you hear the term "credit score," people are usually referring to your Beacon score - a scoring formula for assessing credit risk. Different retail and commercial organizations evaluate your "credit worthiness" using Beacon scores from the credit reporting bureaus, as well as some of their own scoring criteria. For example, while Mercedes-Benz Financial Services uses the services of the different credit reporting bureaus, we have our own formula to derive your credit "score" to determine whether you qualify for financing through Mercedes-Benz Financial Services.

Just as your credit history can be different when reported through different bureaus, your credit score can also differ at any point in time, since it is based on many different factors that include:

  • Your history of making scheduled payments
  • The amount of outstanding debt you have
  • The duration your credit history spans
  • The number of credit inquiries that have been made on your account and the type of inquiries made
  • The kinds of credit you have been awarded (bank cards vs. store specific cards vs. loans, etc.)  


If you want an accurate picture of the credit history that is being reported about you, you will need to request a copy of your credit history from each of the two major credit reporting bureaus. Remember, when you order a credit report it will not necessarily include your credit score. To find out your credit score, you will need to specifically request the "scoring option."

Credit Reporting Agencies
The two major credit reporting bureaus in Canada are:

Equifax: 1.800.465.7166
Visit their Web site at: www.equifax.ca
TransUnion: 1.866.525.0262
Visit their Web site at: www.transunion.ca 

Visit the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada Web site to learn more about safeguarding your personal information.

As an additional resource, you may also wish to visit the Web site of Credit Counselling Canada, a national association of not-for-profit credit counselling agencies.

Annual Percentage Rate (APR)
A measure of the cost of credit expressed as a yearly rate. Each province requires various items to be included in addition to interest.

Base Monthly Payment
The portion of the monthly payment in a lease that includes depreciation, any amortized amounts and vehicle usage costs. Taxes, maintenance and any other fees are added to this base monthly payment to calculate the total monthly payment.

Buyer
The person who signs the Conditional Sale Contract for vehicle purchase.

Closed-End Lease
When you return your vehicle at lease maturity Mercedes-Benz Financial Services absorbs the loss if it is worth less than the established residual value. In other words, the residual risk is "closed" to you. You will remain responsible for any excess wear and tear charges, excess kilometre charges or other amounts that may be due and owing under the lease.

Credit Application
The formal request for credit. It usually includes your name, address, social insurance number (optional) and date of birth. By signing the application, you are giving Mercedes-Benz Financial Services authorization to check your credit history and to collect, use and disclose your personal information for the purposes set out in the credit application.

Depreciation
The amount of a vehicle's projected decline in value through normal use during the lease term.

Down Payment
An initial amount paid up front to reduce the amount financed. You can also reduce the amount financed when you trade a vehicle, depending upon the balance owing on the trade-in.

Excess Wear and Tear
The wear and tear to a vehicle that is above expected normal wear and tear. To help you determine if there is excess wear and tear on your leased vehicle that you will be charged for, Mercedes-Benz Financial Services has developed the First Class Finish. See your dealer for details.

Gap Protection
If your leased vehicle is stolen, damaged beyond repair or destroyed, there may be a shortfall (gap) between the proceeds of your insurance that Mercedes-Benz Financial Services receives and the full balance owing by you under the lease. Rather than having to pay the whole amount of this shortfall, in circumstances where Gap Protection applies you will only be required to pay the amount of the insurance deductible together with any outstanding charges owing by you at the time Mercedes-Benz Financial Services receives the insurance proceeds. Gap Protection is not insurance and is only available through Mercedes-Benz Financial Services on certain leases. [1]

Guarantor
A person who is guaranteeing the payment and performance of your obligation under a lease or Conditional Sale Contract.

Lease
A contract for the use of a vehicle between a lessee and lessor, with agreed-upon terms and conditions.

Lessee
The person or organization to whom the vehicle is leased; signatory to the lease agreement.

Lessor
The organization that leases the vehicle (Mercedes-Benz Financial Services).

Open-End Lease
In an open-end lease, the lessee is responsible for the residual value. If you return your vehicle at lease maturity, you are responsible for any shortfall between the residual value and the net proceeds from the sale of the vehicle. In the event that the net proceeds exceed the residual value, this surplus would be paid to you (after deduction for any other amounts that may be owing by you under the lease).

Purchase Option [2]
At lease-end, you have options. One such option that may be available under your lease is to purchase the vehicle at a predetermined price plus applicable taxes. This predetermined price is listed in your agreement.

Residual Value
The estimated wholesale value of your vehicle at lease maturity, predetermined at the time you sign your lease.

Financing
The use of credit to finance the purchase of a vehicle over an agreed-upon duration, or term.

Star Advantage
The use of credit to finance the purchase of a vehicle over an agreed-upon duration, or term with a final lump sum payment at the end of the loan allowing for lower monthly payments to be made during the term.

Security Deposit (Lease)
A refundable amount that the lessee must pay to the leasing company at the beginning of the lease. This deposit will be returned if all of the terms and conditions of the lease are met, otherwise it will be applied against your lease obligations.

Term
The duration of the lease or loan agreement, typically expressed in months.

[1] See your lease agreement for conditions and exclusions.
[2] Not available in all Provinces.
