America prides itself on the entrepreneurial spirit. Consequently, small business owners are increasingly becoming major key economic stimulators. When a small business owner decides to incorporate his or her business, that small business owner has just begun the process of creating a brand new and separate entity. Basic business law dictates that a corporation is a “separate and distinct legal entity having its own privileges and liabilities distinct from those of its member.”
Given this information, it then becomes essential and relevant that small business owners develop and maintain a unique and separate business profile. Every small business can and should establish their business credit. Just as it is important to maintain a personal credit profile, the same care, if not more, is needed to maintain a business profile.
