What Effects a Business Credit Score?

Like personal credit scoring, business credit scores provide a quick view of risk potential based on where the score falls on the scale. The higher the score, the lower the risk. Unlike personal credit scoring, business credit scores use a scale that ranges from 0 to 100.

There are several things that can affect your company's business credit score.

  1. Any derogatory public records on the business Credit, such as collections, late payments, liens, judgments or bankruptcies
  2. The status of liens, judgments, or bankruptcies such as the frequency and the dollar amounts.
  3. The increased of slow payments. (The earlier you pay the better it reflects on the report).
  4. Number of business credit inquiries by the Business or business owner, this also includes applications that are submitted.
  5. The number of trade experiences, balances outstanding, payment habits, credit use and trends over time.
  6. Years in business
