No. Loans from 401(k) accounts are not usually reported to credit reporting agencies, so it should not affect your credit history favorably, or negatively.

Closing a 16 year old seasoned credit card account with an excellent payment history will NEVER improve your credit. As a matter of fact, opening a new credit account will also temporarily reduce your score. If you need a lower rate, call your current credit card company and request it. It is a much better solution that can save you money on interest. The following link can show how to request a lower interest rate on your current credit card account.

A Merchant Account is an account linked to a business's current account that will accept and provide the credit card transaction process. In order to get a Merchant Account one must apply in a process similar to getting a personal credit card whereby credit worthiness, history of trading and likely spend will be assessed.

It goes on your Credit History as an incomplete pay history and in the comments sections in the Credit History for that bank they will give the reason for the negative history.

No, but your credit history accounts for about 15% of your credit score.

It will not affect your credit if you pay off the balance when you close the account.

Closing an account will affect your credit score and decrease your score.

Cash is "not" a credit in accounting. The cash account is an asset and is a debit balance account. To increase the cash account you debit the account and to decrease it you credit it.Cash = Current Asset = Debit Balance(GAAP)

Your credit score is affected by ALL the information in your credit history. Specifically, a recently closed, inactive, revolving account would impact the amount of credit available to you, thus changing your debt-to-available-credit ratio. If this particular acccount was the oldest account in your file, closing it would also shorten the history of your open credit accounts. The amount of impact to your current score would depend upon what remained open in your file and, once again, ALL the data showing, not just this one account.

It does not. The debt belongs to the deceased. If the estate cannot settle the account, the credit card company is not going to get paid.

If this relates to a joint account holder or cosigner, then yes the person's credit rating will be affected by a repossession. Yes, whoever's name the car is in will be affected by the car's repossession. Only if the car is somehow tied to the account. Only a bad payment history on that joint account can affect your credit.

yes it can, both parties are equally responsible for the account

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.

Yes, as long as your listed as a "Co-signer" on the account. Credit is not build if you are just an "Authorized User" if this was a credit card account. Lastly, this all assumes that whatever this joint-account is that it reports to credit.

If you have a chargeback, that is a credit to your account. This will not affect your credit score negatively or positively.

You can get credit history by having a credit card or line of credit. Anything that reports to the credit bureaus that you are paying each month. You can also get some credit accounts added to your credit history by becoming an authorized user on a spouses or family members account. All this doesn't matter if it isn't paid on time, so a credit history length with a good payment history will help your credit score.

User Avatar

Yes. Any new credit account or loan will effect your rating.

User Avatar

No. Credit history pertains to the individual. With the exception of joint accounts such as credit cards, not bank accounts.

User Avatar

In many cases, yes, it will hurt the business credit history due to you having bad personal credit history. Being a "silent" partner is the best option you have if you want to be involved in the business.

User Avatar

The information from a credit history doesn't transfer. So what has to be done before the person moves is to get a U.S. bank account and try to establish some credit.

Bad credit history is reported for seven years. Each time you make a payment on the account, the time that a creditor can report the account starts over.
