Building business credit allows a business owner to protect their personal credit while establishing the creditworthiness of the business itself. With a separate legal entity such as a corporation or limited liability company, you have the unique ability to create a credit identity for the business also known as a business credit profile with the business credit reporting agencies.
When you structure your business as a corporation or limited liability company it becomes recognized as a separate legal entity with the ability to enter into contracts. It’s treated as a separate being. Basically, you have the ability to create a credit file in your company’s name using your EIN number.
Your EIN is used by the IRS for tax purposes, but this also gives you the ability to create a business credit report with the business credit reporting agencies. This credit profile for your business is vital if you plan on acquiring credit or funding using your company’s credit report as a qualifier. Banks, lenders, vendors, suppliers, retailers, business owners & investors check business credit reports to gauge the creditworthiness, the viability and strength of a business.
