There are over 20 credibility points that are necessary for a business to have a strong, credible foundation. (c) Copyright 2013 www.doctorbusinesscredit.com All rights reserved.

    11. 11. Corporate Entities You can build business credit with almost any corporate entity type  If you truly want to separate business credit from personal credit your business must be a separate legal entity not a sole proprietor or partnership  Unless you have a separate business entity (Corporation or LLC) you might be "doing business" but you are not truly "a business“  You need to be a Corporation or an LLC in order to separate personal from business credit  (c) Copyright 2013 www.doctorbusinesscredit.com All rights reserved.

    17. 17. Step 2- Business Credit Reports Business credit reports are offered by Experian, Equifax, and Dun & Bradstreet  Set up your business credit “the right way” with each business credit reporting.  Doctor Business Credit can help with proven methods which have been used by thousands.  (c) Copyright 2013 www.doctorbusinesscredit.com All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast or written without our permission.
    18. 18. The Big 3 Agencies In A Glance Experian is the most open and accessible. You can easily buy your business report online and there is no fee for setting up your file. Experian Smart Business Reports is used by many credit card companies, vendors, non-traditional lenders, and banks. Our program gives you free access.  Equifax also allows business owners to purchase a copy of their reports online but is typically the most difficult to establish a file with. This is mainly because their requirements on the vendors and credit providers who would report your payment history are more demanding than Experian or D&B’s. Equifax manages the “Small Business Financial Exchange” and is important to cash lenders such as banks.    Dun & Bradstreet assigns businesses at D-U-N-S number and a “rating”. These are critical components of the process. Along with some conventional business lenders for underwriting, D&B is used by many vendors to determine if they will extend your business net terms, and landlords use them to approve office leases. We also provide your dubs number which would cost you $799. (c) Copyright 2013 www.doctorbusinesscredit.com All rights reserved.

    19. 19. Experian       Visit http://www.smartbusinessreports.com/ for a copy of your Smart Business Report Find out how many trade lines are reporting, Check if you have a business credit score assigned, Check if you have an active Experian Business Profile, and Check on recent inquires Get a Smart Business Report (c) Copyright 2013 www.doctorbusinesscredit.com All rights reserved.

    20. 20. Equifax You can purchase a copy of your Equifax Small Business Credit Report here http://www.equifax.com/small-business/creditreport/en_sb  It is important to work with the credit providers who help and work with you to build your credit the fast way, not just report what is necessary.  (c) Copyright 2013 www.doctorsbusinesscredit.com All rights reserved.

    21. 21. Dun & Bradstreet DUNS Number Obtaining a Dun and Bradstreet number (D-U-N-S #) begins the process of building your business credit profile with them  Your D-U-N-S # will also play an important role in enabling your business to borrow without a personal guarantor.  http://www.dnb.com/  $299 - $699 per DUNS Number  (c) Copyright 2013 www.doctorbusinesscredit.com All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast or written without our permission.
    22. 22. Step 3- Building Business Credit A business credit report can be started much the same as a consumer credit report, opening with merchant credit cards  A vendor line of credit is when a company (vendor) extends a line of credit to your business on "Net 15, 30, 60 or 90" day terms  Your business needs to have a total of at least five (5) Net 30 day pay accounts reporting  (c) Copyright 2013 www.doctorbusinesscredit.com All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast or written without our permission.
    23. 23. Keep Up with Corporate Records Make sure your business is registered with the state as a legitimate company and in compliance by having: Articles of Incorporation, Corporate Minutes, Corporate Resolutions, and List of Officers. Keeping up-to-date corporate records is legally required and you must file every year to stay in good standing. If you don’t, you’ll be throwing away all the liability protection and other benefits that a company is entitled to receive. (c) Copyright 2013 www.doctorbusinesscredit.com All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast or written without our permission.
    24. 24. Step 4- Revolving Accounts       After the business has established numerous trade lines, it will be able to start getting approved for revolving business credit accounts. Trade lines create the required history for a company. Businesses need several cards with 10K limit. Do not link personal credit to business credit. These accounts normally report to Experian, D&B and sometimes Equifax. Make sure they report the right way to all. Not all companies report to every agency. These accounts will help build business credit, due to their reporting methods, on a larger scale than just the Net 30day vendors alone. (c) Copyright 2013 www.doctorbusinesscredit.com All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast or written without our permission.
    25. 25. Locate Merchants Who Do Not Request Your SSN Most merchants and major retailers offer business credit, they just don’t advertise it  There is no benefit to the merchant to promote credit with no personal liability if the business owner is willing to take on that liability  Merchants don’t promote their business credit cards regularly, they ask for the owner’s SSN  When applying, the owner should know the information that merchants check to provide higher credit limits  Without projecting the perfect image of their liking you get low limits or no credit at all  (c) Copyright 2013 www.doctorbusinesscredit.com All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast or written without our permission.
    26. 26. Revolving Credit Cards The business needs a high credit score and a perfect credit file to receive a high credit limit for a Visa or MasterCard.  Find out all requirements before applying. We never let our clients apply unless we know they will be approved. Too many inquiries reflect desperation and slows the process.  Get approved for higher limit cards $10,000+  Obtain multiple Visa, MasterCard, AMEX and continue increasing credit limits.  (c) Copyright 2013 www.doctorbusinesscredit.com All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast or written without our permission.
    27. 27. Keep Business & Personal Credit Separate Make sure you separate business credit from personal credit. As soon as you provide your SSN, the business and personal credit is merged.  Most merchants and major retailers offer business credit, they just don’t advertise it.  There is no benefit to the merchant to promote credit with no personal liability if the business owner is willing to take on that liability.  (c) Copyright 2013 www.doctorbusinesscredit.com All rights reserved.

    28. 28. Credibility Points The perception lenders, vendors, and creditors have of your business credit is critical to your ability to build strong business credit.  Before applying for business credit, a business must ensure it meets or exceeds all lender credibility standards.  There are over 20 credibility points that are necessary for a business to have a strong, credible credit foundation.  (c) Copyright 2013 www.doctorbusinesscredit.com All rights reserved.
