Is your company’s business credit holding you back from the financing you need? Business credit is an important but frustrating part of having your own business.
What Is Business Credit?
Business credit is a lot like personal credit. Having a strong business credit score will open financing doors for your business and having a low score will make those doors harder to walk through. Many traditional lenders evaluate a company’s financing potential on their business credit. Business credit is built over time; therefore, many small businesses or startup businesses have lower credit scores than traditional lenders prefer.
Building Business Credit
Not all vendors report payments to business credit agencies, so a solid method of building business credit is working with vendors that do report payments. If you do not know whether a vendor reports payment to business credit companies, just ask. It is not only important to pay on time but paying early will lead to the highest credit score. In order to pay vendors on time or early, having strong cash flow is essential.
