Yes. But probably not by much. The reason has to do with the configuration of credit scoring software. Credit scores places the most emphasis, 35%, on what has occured recently (within the last 12 mos). So, information so old that it is "dropping off" is not causing much of a deduction anyway. However, the deduction that is being generated would be gone once the data falls off. Even if this is only a few points, yes, your score would recover those points.

Will having no credit cards or outstanding loans improve a credit rating over time or is having at least one account that is current better?

You have to have credit in order to have a credit history and a credit score. Every consumer needs at least one installment account and two revolving accounts that are managed properly for optimal points during the calculation that produces a credit score. It can be harder to get the credit you need, such as a mortgage loan, with no credit history than when a borrower has bad credit. Also, if a consumer has bad credit; positive, ongoing,accounts will offset the negative information.

How can you get a zero as your credit score?

Typically, if you see a "zero" or nothing as a credit score it is due to the consumer having no credit or not having any positive credit that would contribute to the scoring system. A consumer can have nothing but negative credit on their report and this would not generate a score. A score is normally generated when the consumer has had a loan and/or credit card history.
