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