Your credit score can range from 300 – 850.
There are nearly 40 credit reporting agencies in the United States, however, just 3 of them dominate the market.
TransUnion, Equifax, and Experian.
A credit bureau is an agency that collects and researches individual credit information and sells it for a fee to creditors so they can make a decision on granting loans.
Credit bureaus partner with all types of lending institutions and credit issuers to help them make loan decisions. The three main credit bureaus in the United States are Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion, though there are many smaller companies that provide similar services.
The primary purpose of credit bureaus is to ensure that creditors have the information they need to make lending decisions. Typical clients for a credit bureau include banks, mortgage lenders, credit card issuers and other personal financial lending companies. Credit bureaus are not responsible for deciding whether or not an individual should have credit extended to them; they merely collect and synthesize information about an individual’s credit score and give that information to lending institutions. Consumers can also be customers of credit bureaus, and they receive the same service – information about their own credit history.
Your credit report contains things like your identifying information, trade lines, credit limits, account names, credit history, credit inquiries, public record, collections, late payment information, and of course, your credit score.
In general, it might.
Employers are allowed, by federal law, to see a modified version of your credit report for purposes of hiring and promotion, meaning it could cost you a job or promotion.
There are many factors that contribute to any loan approval. Your credit score is just the tip of the iceberg for most loans. However, generally, you’ll need at least a score of 620 to be approved for a traditional home loan.
The minimum accepted score for a car loan will depend on the amount of money being requested, but some lenders will approve scores as low as 500–assuming you don’t mind paying extra money in interest.
There are five main contributors to your credit score–payment history, amount of debt, length of credit history, credit mix and new credit. Managing your credit wisely by paying your bills on time, paying debt down and maintaining your current accounts, could improve your score.
Beyond these five factors, your credit could contain negative items that are unfair or inaccurate, which can stay on your reports for up to 7–10 years. If you don’t want to wait that long, you can try repairing your credit. Learn more about how to fix your credit by clicking this link, call Elaine One Enterprises at 1-877-557-9313, or sign up today.
Your FICO® Score is a three-digit number determined by the information on your credit report. While FICO® doesn’t collect the data themselves, it’s their algorithm that determines your score. Considering their score is used in 90% of all lending decisions, it’s very helpful to know where you stand.
VantageScore creates a single tri-bureau model that can be used with a credit report from Experian, Equifax or TransUnion. FICO® creates bureau-specific scoring models.
The law entitles you to an accurate, fair and substantiated credit profile. If something on your credit isn’t right, you can correct or repair it with the credit bureaus and your creditors.
Unfortunately, we can’t guarantee anything. But we can promise to help you work to address any unfair or inaccurate negative items hurting your credit profile.

Absolutely. You just need to contact the bureaus and your creditors to address any errors on your credit. We have a step by step video course found HERE that will assist you with this process.
That being said, this process is time consuming and confusing. Working with a reputable consulting company like Elaine One Enterprises can help you remove these items from your reports quickly and efficiently.
Yes, your creditors may report an item again, even after it’s been removed or deleted. That’s why it’s important to contact both the credit bureaus and your creditors. This will increase the likelihood that inaccurate or unfair negative items will not reappear on your credit.
According to CreditCards.com and CNNMoney, even a single negative item on your credit could cost you over 100 points.
|Negative Item||Credit Score Decrease|
|Late Payment||Up to 110 points|
|Debt Settlement||Up to 125 points|
|Foreclosure||Up to 160 points|
|Bankruptcy||Up to 240 points|
|Collection||Up to 110 points|
|Hard Inquiry||Up to 15 points|
While there are many laws that apply to your credit, the Credit Repair Organizations Act (CROA) and Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) are the two laws we utilize the most.
No. Even after a questionable negative item is removed from your credit, the actual debt is still owed (assuming it was valid to begin with). If you don’t pay the debt, the creditor or collection agency may re-report the listing. Removing a negative item without addressing the debt is only a temporary solution. In fact, if you feel a negative credit listing is 100% accurate, timely and verifiable, we recommend you don’t dispute it.

Incorporating is an important step to providing you and your business with more security. It can even help you save money. The benefits are compelling, so why put it off? Don’t wait: here are seven reasons you should incorporate today.
Protect personal assets.
The limited liability feature of corporations offers protection for your personal assets. Why worry about losing your home or family savings, in the event of a business reversal or lawsuit? As a busy entrepreneur, you have too many other things to think about.
Increase tax savings.
Take advantage of tax saving opportunities not available to sole proprietors and partnerships. You can decrease your corporation’s taxable income by offering benefits to your employees, such as pensions and profit sharing. Medical, life and disability insurance premiums are completely tax deductible.
A corporation can raise money through the sale or issuance of stock, bonds or other securities.
If an owner of a corporation dies, the â€œperpetual existenceâ€ feature of corporations allows stock ownership to be quickly transferred, thereby allowing your company to continue operating without interruption.
Simplify estate and family planning.
Shares of a corporation or LLC can be readily distributed to family members following your estate or business succession plan.
Enjoy corporate discounts.
The retail, hospitality and banking industries all value corporate accounts and offer attractive discounts to secure your business.
Forming a corporation or LLC is easy, and it takes less than 30 minutes to place your order. Call us at 1-877-557-9313 or sign up for our solutions today!.

It is always recommended to have legal counsel when dealing with anything legal.
However, it can be very costly. Most states don’t require an attorney’s services when you form a corporation or LLC. Actually in many cases attorneys will use Elaine One Enterprises to process their own filings since we can often do it faster and less expensively. We do strongly recommend that you consult with an attorney if you have any legal questions, if your business is complex or if you plan on doing business internationally. Elaine One Enterprises does not provide any legal or tax advice.
Deciding between a corporation and limited liability company (LLC) or choosing which type of corporation to form is a decision best made in consultation with trusted advisors, such as a lawyer or accountant. While we can’t advise you on such matters, we can explain the differences and point out the benefits of corporations and limited liability companies (LLCs).
In most states your corporation’s name must include an ending that will indicate that the company is a Corporation or LLC. Some common corporate endings are Inc., Ltd., Co. Company, Corporation, Incorporated or Limited,
Some common LLC endings are: LLC, Limited liability Company
When choosing a company name, have an alternative in mind, just in case your first preference is not available.
Corporations and LLCs formed in Illinois or Indiana are filed the same day you choose a solution with us. You can typically expect to receive a copy of the filed document within one to two business days.
The majority of the other states will take 3-7 business days for you to receive a copy of the filed document assuming expediting services are ordered. Non-expedited filings can take 10-15 business days in most instances.
Most states require you to list a registered agent with a physical address in the state of formation. The responsibilities of a registered agent include forwarding any government notices and accepting any legal documents on the company’s behalf. Not responding to a service of process in a timely manner could result in a default judgment against the company.
Many clients choose Elaine One Enterprises to act as their registered agent so they will not miss any important annual report due dates. Not filing the annual report by the due date can result in penalties up to $400 and the company falling out of good standing with the state. It is also a good idea to use Elaine One Enterprises as your registered agent office to avoid listing your personal home address on formation documents. Corporate documents are public records. If you want to keep your company’s business separate from your personal address, we recommend a commercial registered agent like Elaine One Enterprises.
Many service providers offer similar services, but that doesn’t mean they are all alike. Ask yourself the following questions:

Our database contains numerous vendors and retailers that will offer lines or credit to all our members whether they are a start-up or existing business. Most importantly we provide the guidelines for getting approved.
Some of the types of vendors we list are office suppliers, packaging and shipping, graphic and logo design, web design, computers and electronics, printing and promotional, marketing and advertising, business services, etc.
It is ideal to build business credit with an LLC or Corporation (S or C Corp). Creditors, lenders, trade suppliers, etc. prefer to see an actual business entity.
Furthermore, your personal and business credit can never truly be separated if you operate as a sole proprietorship or partnership – everything you do remains “personal” with those structures.
True personal and business credit separation along with liability protection can only occur with a separate legal entity such as a corporation or LLC.
Absolutely! We know that one of the main reasons you are building business credit is to get away from having all of the business financing tied personally to you as a business owner.
By building strong business credit scores you will be able to secure vendor lines of credit and many other types of business financing using only your business credit. However, beyond that, there is still more to the equation that many business credit building services don’t want to talk about.
In the business world, an owner’s personal credit scores can make the difference. That is why we offer personal credit assistance. The fact is in the current lending and credit markets, banks and conventional business lenders are looking at both personal and business credit.
