Consumer Credit vs Business Credit Bureaus
Lenders pull business credit reports and scores from Business Credit Bureaus. However, not every business has a business credit report because they haven’t taken the steps to start building their credit profile.
With consumer credit, you’ll have a credit report as soon as you use your first credit card. As long as you pay your bills and continue to use credit responsibly, your credit score continues to improve.
In contrast to consumer credit, business credit does not start building automatically on its own.
The trick is to get set up properly with the business credit bureau so it has legitimate and accurate information about you to track activity relevant to your credit report.
Establishing your credit profile is a process that entails more than filling out a form with your company’s pertinent information. There’s a series of steps involved to get set up “the right way.”
