Part II of my conversation with Shelton Marchman.
We dive into business credit essentials and why they are so vital if you’re looking to build your business. Many people start their business without a tax ID number or setting up an LLC.
In this episode, find out what elements are essential to have in your business, why you should have a separate business entity, and how having a Sole Proprietorship can set you up for personal disaster.
Shelton explains how you can obtain an EIN or tax ID number for your business, how you can set up your business income and assets as a different entity than your personal assets. He and I talk about examples of companies who have walked through the credit process correctly and others who have made mistakes with their credit.
We will also dive into how you can achieve credit terms with your vendors, to build up your credit with vendors and eventually move your credit score higher up the scale. I’ll also talk to Shelton about the types of credit cards you can access with your business.
Choose a Business Card with Travel Perks
When choosing a business credit card, look for cards that can earn you points with travel perks such as Chase Venture or American Express, who have tremendous perks for small business owners. Make sure to have your credit card account under your business name, not your personal name. This way, you're building credit for your business, not your personal credit.
