How to Get a Low 5


If you don’t have the $10,000 required for the low 5 rating, consider borrowing it from friends or family. Maybe pull it off personal credit cards or out of the equity in your home. If you borrow it from friends or family, explain to them you will not be “using” the money, but that it will just be sitting in your business checking account. Tell them you can return it to them in six (6) months. Maybe offer to pay interest. In the steps that follow, we will be looking at other creative ways to get the money you need.

Don’t Have $10,000? Don’t Worry … Bank ratings are totally separate from building business credit and have no effect on your ability to build strong scores. So if you don’t have the $10,000, or can’t get access to the $10,000 to secure a Low 5 Bank Rating, it will have no impact whatsoever on your ability to build strong business credit scores. However, bank ratings can definitely have an impact on your ability to secure larger business loans and credit lines in the future. So when your business starts making money remember to keep your daily balance above $10,000 in order to maintain at least a Low 5 Rating.

  1. Planning on doing business with the Federal Government? If so, your business will need a Central Contractor Registration before being awarded a contract. Central Contractor Registration (CCR) is the official, online registrant database for the United States Federal Government. Its sole purpose is to collect, validate, store and distribute information to federal finance offices, procurement and electronic business systems. If your company plans to do business with the federal government then you will need CCR registration before being awarded a contract.

There are four key items that you will need before beginning your CCR registration:

  1. Employer Identification Number (EIN) or Tax Identification Number (TIN) – If you have a number then it will take 3-5 business days to clear the CCR taxpayer match process.
