How to Make Your Company More Credit Worthy & How to Prepare a Budget

Hyde Park, VT


          The current economic climate is difficult for small businesses that often have trouble getting the credit they need to secure loans, make payroll, manage inventory, or expand. Lending hasn't been this challenging in decades and legislation to support businesses remains unclear.

Quite simply, financial institutions won’t make loans to a person or business that is unlikely to pay the money back. Establishing a solid history of timely payments is critical to proving your company’s creditworthiness.

So how can small businesses improve their credit profiles and ultimately their credibility with vendors, creditors, and customers?  Attend this workshop and learn simple tips which can be extremely helpful in proving that your business is indeed creditworthy. If you don’t measure your financial results you cannot manage them.

Learn how to prepare a budget, to not only manage your results but also help your company become more credit worthy.
