Any debt left ignored or bills that you didn’t settle all get reflected annually in a document that is easily accessible by various financial institutions and is used to base your financial credibility.

With lenders, bankers and other financial institutions using it as a reference before granting important loans, it’s a piece of reference that strongly reflects your credit history and financial responsibility.
