While small business owners are dealing with many different tasks, many have ignored the importance of business credit reports when examining their credit dealings.

Businesses of all shapes and sizes need to be keenly aware of how creditors view their company's financial standings. As a new year begins, January is among the best times to go through the books and find out how to improve credit standings. And while some have dismissed business credit, the fact remains that it says a lot about your business.

"Does your business credit report really matter? Absolutely," according to a recently published ARA article regarding the news for small business. "It paints a picture of your small business for the world to see. Outdated or incorrect information can give the wrong impression about your business, resulting in unfavorable decisions by potential lenders and creditors - which can negatively impact your bottom line."

Small businesses can take advantage of an array of credit rating services. Companies like Experian offer the service in order to let entrepreneurs better understand what kind of credit they have.
