Building Business Credit

Types of Business Credit

There are various options to establish or improve your business credit. Some of the different types of business credit include:

Business Credit Card: A business credit card provides an easy way to begin building business credit as it sets a credit limit, just like other credit cards, with funds that are paid off each month when used.

Line of Credit: A line of credit works similar to a credit card as it provides funds that are available to use when needed. You only pay interest on the amount of credit you use.

Term Loan: The typical, traditional loan offered by a bank or other lender is a term loan, which allows the business to borrow a sum and pay in installments.

Vendor Credit: Businesses can purchase products or services using vendor credit, in which the purchases are made by financing the cost.

Service Credit: Service credit includes utilities and other bills in the business’s name, such as internet and phone lines.
