This report, is updated periodically with every credit inquiry, credit application submittal, change of address, job change, etc. As the credit report is updated and added to, it becomes a statement of an individual's ability to pay back a loan.

Business credit is a little different than personal credit. Unlike personal credit, lenders and creditors voluntarily report credit information to credit bureaus. When a business issues credit to another business, it is referred to as trade credit. Trade credit, or business credit, is the single largest source of lending in the world.
Business credit reports are established and tracked by the business name, physical address, and federal tax identification number or employer identification number (EIN). Because the information sent to the credit bureaus is voluntary, it is extremely important to know which creditors report information and to what bureau.
The key to establishing a business credit report and score is simple, know the process. For the small business owner, trying to navigate the business credit world is overwhelming — knowing which vendors to apply to, who reports credit, tracking the score, etc.
If a step in the process is overlooked, the business can be red flagged by the credit bureaus. The goal is to start immediately and do it correctly from the start.
