Building Business Credit with Your EIN: A Step-by-Step Guide

Building business credit might seem daunting, but with the right approach, it’s an achievable goal. Here’s a roadmap to get you started:

  1. Establish a Legitimate Business: This may seem obvious, but you’ll need a registered business structure like an LLC or S Corp to qualify for business funding.

  2. Get Your Free EIN: Think of your EIN as your business’s social security number. It’s free to obtain from the IRS website (

  3. Project a Professional Image: A website, business phone number, and email address separate from your personal ones scream credibility to potential lenders.

  4. Leverage the Power of Vendor Credit: Companies like Uline, Quill, and Granger offer net 30 terms, allowing you to build trade lines (positive payment records) with Dun & Bradstreet, the leading business credit bureau.

  5. Graduate to Business Credit Cards: Once you have established vendor credit, consider store credit cards and eventually cash credit cards issued in your business’s name.
