Unsecured Business Funding

Obtaining Unsecured Business Funding is a vital element in growing your business credit profile. Establishing business credit is an important step for any new small business and helps you to: (1) maintain a credit history separate from your personal credit history and experience the business benefits of having good business credit, and (2) demonstrate separation between owners and the business. Alternative Funding provides options when you don't qualify for conventional lenders programs.

Why separate credit histories?

By having a business credit history separate from your personal one, you can minimize the effect negative events on one might have on the other. For example, if you have some financial missteps that impact your personal credit history and score, they shouldn’t impact your small business credit if you have established a clear separation and vice versa.

Why separate business and owners?

Unless you’re operating your small business as a sole proprietorship or general partnership, you need to demonstrate that the business is separate from the owners. One of the key benefits that corporations and limited liability companies (LLCs) provide the owners is protection of their personal assets. Keep this protection in place by consistently showing clear separation between the owners and the business.

Eight steps to establishing your business credit

  1. Incorporate your business. Even though you may be incorporated when you’re reading this, it deserves a mention. With sole proprietorships and general partnerships, the business is legally the same as the owner; therefore, there can be no separation of business credit history from personal. Incorporating a business or forming an LLC creates a business that is legally separate from the owner(s).
  2. Obtain a federal tax identification number (EIN). The EIN is basically a social security number for a business. It is required on federal tax filings, and is also required to open a business bank account in the name of the corporation or LLC. In order to comply with IRS requirements, many larger businesses also require an EIN from their vendors in order to pay them for services provided.
  3. Open a business bank account. Open a business checking account in the legal business name. Once open, be sure to pay the financial transactions of the business from that account. If you use a business credit card (see below) for many financial transactions, be sure to pay the credit card bill from your business checking account.
  4. Establish a business phone number. Whether you use a landline, cell phone or you use VoIP, have a separate number for your business and in your business’s legal name. List that number in the directory so it can be found.
  5. Open a business credit file. Open a business credit file with all three business reporting agencies: Experian, Equifax and TransUnion.
  6. Obtain business credit card(s). Obtain at least one business credit card that is not linked to you or any other owners personally. Pick a business credit card from a company that reports to the credit reporting agencies.
  7. Establish a line of credit with vendors or suppliers. Work with at least five vendors and/or suppliers to create credit for your company to use when purchasing with them. Ask them to report your payment history to the credit reporting agencies.
  8. Pay your bills on time. Perhaps it should go unsaid, but be sure to pay your bills on time. Like with your personal credit, late payments will negatively impact your business credit.

Benefits of having good business credit

Having good business credit can provide a number of benefits, including:

  • Positioning your company for more favorable payment terms with new vendors and suppliers.
  • Reducing the number of times you will need to prepay for products or services purchased.
  • Allowing you to obtain better interest rates and credit terms from lenders and banks.

Once you have established and built good business credit, be sure to monitor and protect it, just as you do with your personal credit.

4 - Vendor Lines of Credit

We teach you what each vendor requires for approval and which business credit agency it reports to. Optimizing business credit requires that your company acquire vendor lines of credit. 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, or Installments 6, 12, 18, 24, 36, ect months. This means that you can purchase their products or services up to a maximum dollar amount and you have 15, 30, 60 or 90 days to pay the bill in full.

5 - Business Lines of Credit

 A revolving business line of credit account is one that allows you to pay a "minimum due" per month and not the full outstanding balance. These accounts normally report to Experian Business and sometimes to D&B and Equifax Small Business. Because of how they report, these accounts will help build your business credit on a larger scale than just the Net 30 day vendors alone.

You will have the opportunity to apply for a variety of unique funding programs if you qualify. If you do not qualify for a specific program we offer, we show you how to meet the requirements needed to be eligible to apply.
