Common Questions and Answers

What is DBT?

Answer :
DBT or 'Days Beyond Term' is a dollar-weighted average number of days beyond the contractual due date that a business pays its bills based on tradelines that have been updated in the previous 3 months. DBT is calculated at +30 days, so a DBT of 5 means that a customer is paying, on average at 35 days after invoicing. Experian's business credit reports display the DBT for the business being reported on as well as the industry-average DBT.
