D & B Secret!
Even if You Have Been in Business for Six Years Your Company May Have NO Profile with D & B!
They’ve paid all their bills on time. They still may not have any type of business credit file developed.
The main reason is that they have vendors that do NOT report their good payment activity to D & B. Most business owners think since they pay their bills on time that is enough and vendors report.
That is NOT what happens.
Think about it. All the vendors that own you money do you take the time, labor and effort to report to D & B? Probably not!
