Advantages of Having A Business Credit Profile 

Just by building a business credit profile you will be able to limit the use of your personal guarantee and build business credit regardless of your personal credit history.

You will have more cash for the business.  Convenience in purchasing.  Protection of your personal assets from that of the business.  Limit your personal liability from the business.  No need for personal credit checks.  Purchase vehicles with no personal guarantees.   Purchase equipment, computers and more with your business credit.  Preparing your business for future lending needs

Separating You From Your Business 

You can separate your personal liability and protect your personal assets from that of the business just by incorporating. It is possible to build a business credit profile for a sole proprietorship or partnership however you are still responsible for all the debts of the company. We recommend building your business credit as a corporation or limited liability company. Other advantages of a corporation are:
Separates you from your business.  Limited liability of the owners and officers. Lower tax liability.  100% tax deductible insurance.  Reimburse 100% of medical expenses.  Corporate image.  Raise capital and build credit faster.  Lower your audit risk as a small corporation.  Stock ownership - easier to transfer assets.  Protect Your Personal Assets


*IMPORTANT* If you need to get incorporated we have set up a separate site for you to do so quickly and easily at the least expensive price possible, we are here to help you build BUSINESS CREDIT.
