Once one or preferably all of the above have been done, you can request business credit in your company name. Your business trades then are reported to the credit bureau, creating a robust business credit report that gives lenders and suppliers quality information about your company and boosts your ability to obtain loans, increase credit lines and earn more favorable credit terms....
Another alternative is getting a personal credit card until you have trade lines established to help improve your credit profile. Before you apply for a credit card, you should have some ideas of how you plan to use it. For example, if you travel, you might be interested in frequent flyer miles or cash back for hotels and dining. Pay attention also to annual fees and purchase APRs, and the terms you will be faced with after any special promotions end.
