The benefits of having a good business credit score

January 25, 2017 by Gary Stockton

Good credit is the lifeline of your business. Sure, it’s a must for obtaining funding for launching or expanding your business. But that’s only the beginning. So, here are just a few of the many benefits of building and maintaining a good business credit score.

  • First, it can save you money. Lenders offer better interest rates to businesses with good credit.
  • You can obtain business credit without the need for a personal guarantee. And this reduces your personal liability and protects your personal assets.
  • It can help you stay ahead of your competition. You can pass your interest savings onto your customers or keep a larger margin of profit for yourself.
  • You can make decisions with confidence and get the money you need, which can reduce stress on you and your company.

Bottom line.

A good credit report and score are essential for getting the money you need to successfully run and grow your business.
