Business credit is credit obtained in a business name. With business credit, the business builds its own credit profile and credit score. With an established credit profile and score, the business will then qualify for credit. This credit is based on the business’s ability to pay, and not the business owners. Since the business qualifies for the credit, in some cases there is no personal credit check required from the business owner.
Similar to personal credit, business credit determines whether your company can be trusted by the way it manages money. Think of your business credit report as a gauge for the financial reputation of your business.
By taking the necessary steps to build business credit the more financial opportunities your business will have. Banks, lenders and suppliers rely on business credit reports to assess the creditworthiness of a company. With strong business credit, you create a safety net for your business so you should have no trouble gaining access to the business funding you need.
