Tips to improve credit score You’re business score is quite the same with your personal score. You have to maintain it and keep it up if you want to expand your business in the future. Below are tips on how you can improve your business credit score. Pay your bills on time- Just like with your personal score, missing out on payments is a sin when it comes to taking care of your score. If your record shows that you have missed tons of payments, credit lenders will see you as a risk. Don’t apply to multiple credits at once- Each time you apply for a new credit, lenders will check your credit report and credit scores and will leave a mark that other lenders or banks will see. If they see a lot of marks on it, they will think that you are struggling financially and of course, once again a risk. If you are to apply for another credit, go to the ones who are most likely to approve you. Keep-up a healthy cash flow- If you can show the lenders that you are financially responsible they’ll be willing to lend to you. You can prove that through your credit reports as well. Planning in advance will help too. Try your best to reduce the time given for your customers to pay their invoices. Negotiate with your suppliers and ask them if they can give you a longer time for paying them. In the business world, time is very important. So if you have the chance to extend it even just a bit, it will really help you plan things out. Look for dependable suppliers- Without your supplies, your business will be nothing. Make you sure your suppliers are reliable. If they deliver late, you’ll start late as well plus you’ll lose customers. It is best to screen your suppliers and do a little research first before making a deal with them. Avoid risky customers- Just as you would to your suppliers; screen your customers as well. Your business’ reputation will be at risk if you don’t. Just do it in a subtle way to prevent negative feedbacks from your customers.

Let the agency know as early as possible to prevent it from affecting your business credit score.
