Building Business Credit in 2014
B2B Credit, Inc. can help you establish a business credit report that is separate from your personal credit - a critical step in any business startup.
Using your business name, address and employer identification number (EIN), information about your business credit transactions is gathered by the Credit Bureaus to create your business' credit profile. This data is then utilized to generate reports about your company's business transactions. Potential lenders base their decisions regarding the amount of credit (if any) that will be extended to your business on the information contained in these reports.
The three biggest business credit bureaus in the U.S. are Dun & Bradstreet, Experian and Equifax. Each of these bureaus may provide your business credit report to the creditors from whom you request credit, but it is a favorable report from Dun & Bradstreet that can be most crucial for a new business.
Your business' credit files may include a variety of information about your business, including your incorporation date, the skills and experience of your top leaders, number of employees, and annual sales. This type of information is listed in your business credit profile, along with scores and ratings that are derived from your business' past behavior. These scores are considered to be predictive of your business' future behavior.
For example, if your business has a history of paying its bills on time, this demonstrates a pattern of good business practices - an important attribute of a successful on-going business. This history is factored into your credit score, as it is a good indication of the likelihood of your business' continued success and ability to pay its bills.
