Just because you have a business, don’t assume you have a score.

Credit reporting companies require a minimum amount of information on your small business before they can generate a credit rating for your business. The process of scoring your business can include more than 200 factors into its model. To build a business credit history and rating, encourage your suppliers or vendors to report your company’s payment history to Experian’s business database. You can download an easy-to-use letter template located here, and send your request to your current suppliers.
