    Bad personal and no Business Credit

    linklitedata Wayfarer
      I was wondering if anyone knew of any resources for getting a loan or credit for my company if my personal credit is bad and my business credit is nill. I am losing alot of money by turning down jobs because I can't afford the upfront payroll because I am paid NET 60.

          Consider the following as an option to help:

           

          Q: What is factoring? How does it work?

           

          A: Factoring is the purchase of accounts receivable for immediate cash. Once you have delivered a product or performed a service for a creditworthy corporation or institution, contact us prior to sending your invoice to your customer. We will confirm with your customer that the work has been completed or the goods delivered and accepted, we will advance you up to 70% (up to 60% for the construction industry) of the face value of the invoice amount in cash. When your customer pays us, you will receive the balance less our discount.

           

          Q: Do I need accounts receivable financing?

           

          A: Yes...if you are a new business. YES...if you are a business that can't get traditional financing, such as a small or medium size business or a minority or woman owned business. YES...if you need additional operating capital. YES...if you want to solve your cash flow problems.

           

          Q: How do I qualify?

           

          A: We base our credit decision on the strength of your customers, not you. It's easy to qualify if you meet the following criteria: Your customer must be another (creditworthy) business. Your invoice must be a valid one for goods sold and delivered or services rendered...to your customer's satisfaction. We will verify each invoice with your customer.

                Hello,

                 

                I just want to respond to the comments made above. The cash Advance programs do have a high cost tied to them as compared to normal loan packages from the bank. Problem with normal banking loan process is that there can be long delays until the funds are available. The Cash Advance and Factoring are viable methods that can bring the much needed Capital Funding to allow your company to grow and expand in the timeline you need. The best way to look at these alternative methods is to look at what the funds are going to allow your business to accomplish. Is there opportunities that would be missed if the funds were not available. If you can assess the business growth and profits that would be realized from the loan or cash advance, then you can better make decision as to if the offer is good for you.

                Hope this helps explain the alternatives that are out there for your business needs.

                Thanks,

                          linklitedata: I am in a similar boat as you. My husband and I funded the startup of our own business and are now faced with growth opportunities and lack of ability to gain the necessary finances to fund that growth. We need new equipment which will allow us to handle the growth and unfortunately our business is not LLC'd to date so we are apparently at a higher risk for obtaining a loan for our growth. The responses are interesting to me as well .. thank you for asking the question.

                              MnlyTechnlgy- I also funded the start of my company and the necessary supplies I needed. Now I have job offers that I can't take because I don't know any employee that will wait 60 days to get paid. Its a brutal process trying to get credit when you have bad or no credit. I figured that I wasn't the only one out there with this situation...

                                          <address>Hello, this is Carol (post name FinanceHelp4u),

                                          Yes, we do have a minimum of $300,000, but why would you not want to have that amount available, if possible. You only pay interest on the amount you use. It is a great program and one that is needed by the majority of businesses in this country. We work with alot of great lending institutions (such as Bank of America) and vendors.

                                          As you may have read on one of my other posts, I have years of experience working with the U.S. Small Business Administration. One of the reasons the majority of new businesses fail is due to inadequate capital. The majority of people I speak to tell me about the business opportunities (work for their company) they have to turn down due to not having the resources available to fund the project until they are paid. This is sad because they have so many ways of becoming a successful entreprenuer, but they do not get prepared for the financial demands it takes to fund their operations until they receive their payments. These are all hard working people with great minds that get so tied up in their everyday operations they fail to plan and be ready for the "bigger" payday. "It takes money to make money" and no one can pay their bills (keep a roof over their heads) if they don't properly plan and be "capital ready" for their future "growth" needs. No one goes into business planning to fail, but alot of people go into business without properly planning to "grow". Hindsight is 20/20 (whoever said that has to be a genius....lol) - cause you know it's true.

                                          I am a Financial Consultant, I do not know everything or pretend that I do. But I am very candid and as helpful with you and your business as anyone that you will ever find. I have many clients call me after they have tried to work with other companies. They are usually very upset because the companies will not even return their telephone calls, they are not even able to get a "live" person on the telephone, or the companies make them many promises they cannot deliver, and on and on...many of these clients are very upset and feel like their is no one to help them....because most of them needed help "yesterday".

                                          I am in this business because I love what I do and helping people become as successful as possible is very rewarding. When you win, I win. My services not only include helping businesses obtain loans/lines of credit, but it far surpasses that.

                                          We "meaning myself and the other people I choose to be a part of my team (which are seasoned consultants, such as myself, plus our team of legal experts)" help to grow your business. We can help with corporate legal services, offering an integrated variety of advertising and marketing services to build brand equity (which includes services such as Website Development, Direct Mail, Case Studies, Video Production, Graphic Design, Web Commercials, Creative Writing, Ad Creation, Marketing Brochures, Marketing Strategies, Corporate Newsletters, Brand Management and more). We also help optimize organizational effectiveness - which is advanced corporate consulting services for building an organization that is adaptable to today's everchanging marketplace. We help to determine your strengths and weaknesses, assessing your competitive strengths and core competencies and the proper leveraging of such. We offer a wide range of consulting services that encompass everything a corporation needs to optimize their effectiveness.

                                          Just because you are not already a corporation doesn't matter. We can get you properly incorporated. I am by no means an attorney, but I work with a great legal team. We can help with everything "start to finish". Almost any attorney or accountant can do the "paperwork" and get you incorporated and listed as such by the state of incorporation. But, the problem is after you are incorporated, you don't know what and how to proceed to make sure you are protected by being "Incorporated". If you are not properly informed and take appropriate steps, you can still fail to be protected and be personally liable if a lawsuit is filed against your company, due to what is called "piercing of the Corporate Veil". You can think you are getting a bargain by paying a low price to an attorney or accountant to prepare the paperwork to become incorporated, but if you don't know what to do to properly transact your business in the manner set forth by law, then you are not really getting a bargain, are you? It pays to have your corporation set up correctly and to maintain the proper accounting and paperwork as required by law. So when setting up your Corporation, we make sure you are aware of everything required by your State of Incorporation to stay in compliance. Don't get me wrong in thinking I am "trash talking" accountants and attorneys. Because I am not, the majority of these professionals do this the proper way and I applaud them. I admire them and look up to them and can't say enough about how great a service they are doing for their clients. I just wished they all did this the correct way. But in any profession, there are always some that are not ethical.

                                          We also offer credit repair services. We want to get your company to where it can stand on its own 2 feet when applying for future loans, etc. In this, we mean - that you don't have to sign a personal guarantee each time (putting everything your own personally on the line - home, automobiles, etc). We want to help protect you and in doing so - help you become more successful and keep growing.

                                          Sorry for this being so lengthy, but I just wanted to clarify a few things.

                                          In addition, for any of those loan officers/financial consultants out there that need to be able to help consult their clients in the way I help mine - please feel free to call me. I work with alot of loan officers and consultants who want to be able to offer the services I do. I am very stringent in the ones I work with - so if you are honest, hardworking and compassionate to your clients you may want to contact me.

                                          Thank you,

                                                  CPN Numbers are completely legal and verify through Experien, Equifax, TransUnion, TeleCheck, Check Systems, etc. They are widely used by celebrities, investors, government officials, people from other countries who don't have a social security number, or those who wish to keep their social security number private. You also have the right to obtain a CPN Number and keep your social security number private. When established, they come completely blank. Seasoned tradelines can be added to bring the score up to well over 720. This is also a completely legal practice. Some have misused this one-time government loophole and caused people to frown upon them just like anything else, but these are NOT to take the place of your social security number, nor does it mean you do not owe your current debt. They are one-time, legal right and are issued in your REAL NAME, not a fake name. They not only verify through the credit bureause but are also recognized by the IRS. This government loophole is only available once, so we highly recommend they be used responsibly.

                                          As a former veteran employee of Dun and Bradstreet I learned that the intricacies of borrowing money (behind the scenes) is far from what are the perceptions of everyday business owners.

                                           


                                          This is disturbing on many levels because #1, business owners flock to banks to borrow money with many myths and #2 those that actually do get funded, usually credit luck.

                                           


                                          And, you know what? The answer is so simple that only a handful of business owners have an understanding of it.

                                           


                                          You see, the majority of us live in a reactive society. Your car breaks down, you take it in for a tune-up. Perhaps you got sick and finally go for that checkup that you should have gone to many months before.

                                           


                                          The key in loans is not to borrow money when you need it - do it when you don't need it. However, business owners who are now in need of that cash-flow burn through their personal credit to secure their lines of credit - if they get it - again, this is the thought process which leads to the inevitable downfall.

                                           


                                          The key of course is to make your business become "Lender Compliant" Even if you just started a new business, if you structure your company the way lender's can relate to it, they will invest in your business with legitimate loans.

                                           


                                          So what should I do?

                                           

                                          1. Go to# http://www.dnb.com/# and start working on your business credit. Be careful as to what trades you add to your report as that can potentially affect your rating. You also want to be careful of the type of address and phone number you are using as those can be some of the mitigating factors that affect scores and ratings. You need to D&B with most lenders to be considered for loans, but you DO NOT require D&B to actually secure that loan. Your FICO will usually be that determining factor, but without D&B getting those loans will be much more difficult.

                                          1. You will require a business plan - but not just any plan will do either. What we advise our clients to do is get a "lender compliant business plan"

                                          1. You will also need your company's meeting minutes to be lender complaint.

                                          1. Plan out which banks you want to go to borrow the cash you will need to run your business - research.

                                           

                                          There are companies like mine out there that can help you through the process and let me be the first to tell you, YOU DON'T HAVE TO PAY SOMEONE TO DO IT - you can do it yourself. When you have accomplished the above and need free advice we can help you through your application process. NEVER PAY SOMEONE MONEY UP FRONT TO HELP YOU WITH FUNDING!! There are brokers that charge money, usually on the back end and we advise that the highest you should pay should be no more then 10% of the loan amount.

                                           


                                          Since our line of business is to form corporations, we let banks act as the broker for our clients and therefore we do not charge any fees and our funding process is always free. In fact we have a free hotline (1-800-270-5960) where people can call to ask questions.

                                           


                                          In the meantime, the best advise is to visit http://www.dnb.com/ and read about their products and services. You can also call their toll-free number at 800.234.3867 and speak to one of their representatives.

                                           


                                          We wish you the best of luck!

                                            In my opinion it is quicker and easier to build a strong business credit score from scratch than it is to repair a bad personal credit score. There are many companies out there that help with business credit building, just do a google search.
