The Importance of Credit Ratings for Companies

A company's credit rating is a crucial factor that impacts its ability to secure loans, negotiate favorable terms with suppliers, and build trust with potential partners. According to a recent report by Credit Safe, legal filings drained American businesses of over 54 billion dollars in 2022, with more than 2.7 million total legal filings against companies in various sectors, including professional, scientific & technical services, retail, and construction.

Furthermore, the report highlighted that:

"Larger businesses were more likely to pay suppliers late, with an average of 19 days beyond terms in 2022, compared to small businesses (18) and mid-market businesses (16)."

This underscores the importance of obtaining in-depth credit reports that go well beyond a typical credit report to better understand the risks associated with doing business with a particular company.
