Your business credit score is just as important to your business as your personal credit score is to your personal finances. Checking your business score should be on your list of annual tasks. You want to make sure that the credit bureaus have the information correct. Your score can indicate fraud. And other businesses can check your credit score to decide whether to do business with you.
How Can You Check Your Business Credit?
Checking your business credit report is a bit more complicated than your personal credit. The main three credit bureaus are Experian, Equifax and Dun & Bradstreet. Ideally, you should check all three credit reports. To get the full report, you’ll most likely have to pay a fee.
