How will the payment or satisfaction of tax liens, judgments, and collections impact my business credit score?

A business credit score is modeled on a particular company's payment history, existing credit obligations, previous or existing legal filings, and background history. Often used as an indicator of a company's "financial health", a business credit score is most commonly used to help a lender decide if a company can take on additional financial obligations, and if it will most likely pay those obligations on time.

Satisfaction of derogatory items, such as liens, judgments and collections, will have a positive impact on the overall business credit score. As well, the further away in time from the event, gradually the business credit score will get better.
