Yes, late payments can be removed from your credit report. Under the Fair Credit Reporting, any consumer can dispute anything on their credit report they believe to be erroneous or inaccurate. If you fall under this category, send a dispute letter to the credit bureau asking for verification on the account, they have 30 to days to verify it or it must be removed.

In the case of a collection account, it is always in your best interest to have the tradeline completely removed from your credit report as opposed to having it show paid. If the account is NOT a collection or P&L, then the opposite may be true. Let's say you have a credit card with 6 late payments being reported to your credit history. You negotiate with your creditor to have all the late payments removed from the tradeline, showing that it has been paid as agreed, never late. This would be better then to have the entire tradeline removed, as the now clean payment history will help to raise your FICO score. Having it removed will not have as positive an effect. You will lose all the credit history associated with the tradeline, as well as (if it is a revolving account), available credit. Not having sufficient credit history can be just as detrimental as having bad credit. Hope this helps!

Bankruptcy looks worse on your credit report than a late payment. They will both drop your score quite a bit, but a bankruptcy lets your lenders know you gave up on the debts owed, so making it harder to get new loans. You can always try to contact the credit bureaus to try and dispute the negative listings and have them removed if possible.

Most creditor/clients of the CRA's report monthly via automated tapes. Some creditors report sporatically, some never report. Some only report when you are late, like utility companies. Most creditors report on a 30 days cycle, but that isn't always the beginning or ending of the month. It will also take some time to report on your credit report. So probably you are looking at a 60 days turn around on most late payments.
