Best Way to Build Business Credit
In Part 1 of the Best Way to Building Business Credit we covered credit listings, creditworthiness, credit categories, and Tier 1.
Part 2 of this series we’ll cover the remaining tiers of the structure. As a quick recap, Tier 1 should consist of 4-5 reporting trade lines made up of service providers and starter vendors across all three major business credit agencies.

For example, with Dun & Bradstreet it requires a minimum of three reporting trade experiences to generate a Paydex® Score. Like your personal FICO® score, a business credit score is a statistical measurement of your company’s creditworthiness.
