Commercial credit score
A commercial credit score uses a firm’s credit history to calculate a number indicating a company’s risk, similar to what a consumer credit score does for borrowers. Also, known as a business credit score, the number predicts the likelihood of a company’s late payment. The three leading commercial score issuers are commercial information firm Dun & Bradstreet and credit bureaus Equifax and Experian.
