Common Questions and Answers

If my business changes names and tax ID numbers, how can my established credit history follow me to the new entity?

Answer :
If a business changes its name and tax ID, its credit history will not follow because a new business has been formed. The old credit history will stay with the old business, and the new business with the separate tax ID will build its own credit history.
