Does anyone know how to establish business credit aside from personal credit? I have some ideas ,but just wondering if anyone knew some secrets.

    Have you registered your business with a separate Tax ID#?
    If not, that`s the first thing you will want to do.
    Then contact Dun & Bradstreet to get your DUNS #.
    From that point, they have services you can purchase to help you establish business credit.
    Otherwise, you`ll probably have to wait at least 2 years to get business credit w/o a personal guarantee. One option to try is getting an Office Depot Business Credit Card or setting up some Net 30-60 accounts with services such as: Water Delivery, Business Supplies, etc.
    But you`ll need to be sure they report this to DUNS so you`ll establish a record of credit for your business.
    Good luck!
