How To Report Cosigners To Credit Bureaus

When you set the debtor up, select the CBR tab to display the Credit Report Details for this account. At the bottom you will see a field labeled Report cosigner.

If you switch this ON, then if you enter an Other/Cosigner and set the values appropriately, Collect! will report the debtor in the Base segment of the output file, and the cosigner in the J1 segment of the output file.

The debtor is set up through the Credit Report Details on the Debtor form.

The cosigner is just an Other record, with the field labeled Class set to Cosigner and the fields labeled Type and Association filled out also.
