Why Maintaining your Business Credit Is Important

Business Credit

Your personal credit is often thought to be more essential than your business credit, or at least more significant in the sense it may have a larger influence on your financial abilities such as: applying for business loans and funding. However, as many business owners are discovering these days, business credit is just as vital as personal credit, even if your personal finances are closely linked to the financial health of your company.

A strong business credit shows your lender that you will and are able to pay your bills on time, which will help you qualify faster and more easily should you need additional funding. If your company credit score is good enough, you may even be eligible for lower interest rates on the loan you ask for, depending on the lender.  

Your personal credit will also be protected by having good business credit. As a general rule, personal credit should not be used for company expenses or purchases. Using your personal credit card for major business costs will raise your debt to income ratio, which evaluates how much credit you’re using compared to your credit limit. Your personal credit score will suffer if you have a high credit utilization rate.

What’s important to remember is that taking the necessary steps to keeping your business credit in check from the very beginning is what will benefit you most. Things like ensuring that all your business information is up to date, making payments early or on time, monitoring your credit score to know which areas to improve on and lending from reputable funding companies, will all help you keep your business credit in good standing.
