How Trade References Can Help Your Startup Get Financing
Allow a few weeks to get a response, and account for this in your timeline for applying for the business loan. Once you receive it, you can include it in your loan application. Now that you have your trade credit, you’ll want to use it smartly. When you use that credit, make sure you can afford to pay the balance in full and on time. Know that a late payment can negatively affect your credit scores. You may be asked to provide financial information about your company in the application process.
Start with your existing suppliers and vendors to find out whether they provide credit. If they do, be sure to monitor your business credit reports to see which ones report payment history. (You can check and monitor your business credit for free at Nav.com.) If you don’t have any existing relationships that will allow you to buy on credit, consider working with companies that extend vendor credit. A trade reference is a report that includes your payment history with that vendor.
When it comes to obtaining small business funding, having good trade references can be really beneficial. You may be required to supply the names of your vendors or suppliers when filling out a credit application for business funding so that your payment history can be checked. Also, some companies you pay on terms will disclose your payments to business credit reporting agencies, which can help you build business credit when your payments are on time.
Credit card applications are evaluated based on the owner’s personal credit scores. It is not common these days for banks to request trade references when extending credit, though you should be prepared to provide these references whenever you apply for financing. Trade references are one source of information that can be used to help improve your business credit score. By demonstrating a business’s longstanding and timely payment history, a good trade reference acts as proof of the business’s financial responsibility.
Different terms of repayment apply; on average, a return will usually take 30 days. Lenders and credit suppliers will often ask just how long an account has been open. And they also want to know how many times the amount due has been paid late.
