What does a business credit score say?

A good credit score means that you're quick to pay bills and debts so everyone is happier to do business with you. Suppliers will probably give you more favourable payment terms. Lenders will give you better access to credit and capital. 

Accounting software and credit scores

 You can get business credit scores from credit scoring companies and through accounting software. When making out an invoice to a business in Xero, the software will show you their business credit score according to Equifax - a global credit scoring company.
