Credit Reports Are Not Just For Individuals. They Are For Businesses Too.

Did you know your small business has a credit report? No? Then this tip is definitely for you — listen up.

A business credit report is extremely important and can provide key information about a company’s financial health, prove your company’s creditworthiness and leveraged to help win contracts. Similar to your personal credit score, a high score can help reduce costs associated with interest rates and insurance premiums.

This report is gathered by a few companies. A couple to note are Dun & Bradstreet or D&B, Experian Commercial and Equifax Small Business. All the data and information collected is compiled together to calculate your business’ credit report. The cost of this report may be tax deductible — make sure to check with your CPA.
