How can you establish business credit without paying a company?

In order to help establish business credit without paying an outside company, it is important to get your company's D&B D-U-N-S® Number, which is accessible to all businesses for free, and tax identification number (EIN), which is issued by the IRS. Then, you should update your company's D&B® profile to reflect the most accurate business information, which you can do using Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corp.'s free service, Company Update. Once your profile is up-to-date, another helpful tool is Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corp's CreditSignal® product, which allows companies to get alerts about changes to the credit scores and ratings contained in their D&B business profile for free.
