Most likely not cause to them your business is not established enough. The other reason why they want your SSN is because they want you to personally guarantee it incase your business goes belly up.

Exactly! They want a person they can come looking for.

My suggestion is to start with your local bank where you have your business checking account. They know your true "cash flow" situation better than anyone else if you are truly running things legit. You may have to start out small with them and build on your relationship. good luck

I think you need at least 5 years in business before you can stop doing a personnel guarantee. I would say to go to a local credit union or bank and explain everything to him. They are going to need tax returns and everything about you so be ready.

This is one of the benefits of developing a relationship with your local bank, and working with a small community bank.

There was a thread a couple of months ago discussing bank deposits. Many of the posts provided the merits of working with a system in which they never had to come face-to-face with anybody in the bank, doing all transactions online, or an off-hour, using external machines. Working this way does not develop a relationship, one that may be useful for other needs.

i have been in business 3 years now, and I am able to apply for credit in the business name (corporation) and get credit. I havent had to guarantee very much stuff. Maybe one or two things. Im not going wild with it though. Just basically a couple of vendors as well as a company credit card for fuel and such.
