Establishing a business credit LLC (limited liability company) is very simple and inexpensive. All that is needed is to register the business name, select a registered agent, and pay a one-time filing fee. Business credit LLCs are very popular for their ability to create additional flexibility for small business owners, which in turn, allows them to take control of their financial future.

The first step in establishing business credit LLCs is to create a Memorandum and Articles of Organization. This document will outline the legal structure of the business and outline all the LLC's ownerships, partnerships, stock ownership, and joint stock activities. The name of the business should be entered exactly the way it is described in the Memorandum and Articles of Organization, including the word “limited”. In most cases, business credit LLCs must be registered with the Secretary of State through an approved business bureau.
Once the Memorandum and Articles of Organization are filed with the Secretary of State, business owners are considered registered members of the LLC. They are then assigned an office where they will maintain daily contact with the LLC. The registered office will be in the state where the business is registered. All official actions of the LLC will be reported to the State Board of Equalization. If a company has more than one office, the registered offices may be in different states.
Business credit LLCs have many advantages over business credit cards. A business credit card limits the amount of credit that can be accessed, and it usually comes with high interest rates. A business credit card company will sometimes not allow a business credit card to be used for payroll, inventory, or general fund expenses. Because the business credit card is considered part of the company assets, any use of the credit must be reported to the company's financial institution, which could lead to financial penalties.
The registered office provides a means for obtaining the status report of a company, and it shows whether the company makes money or loses money. In addition, the registered office will provide a copy of the company's operating agreement and its articles of organization to the Secretary of State when a company becomes ready to file its annual report to that board. These documents will also help the Secretary of State to determine if a business credit LLC is making money or losing money.
When a business opens, it usually opens with a blank business credit line. As the business begins to make money, additional credit limit is allowed, up to the amount of money already deposited in the company's account. Credit limits change periodically based upon accounting records and projections. When a company first gets business credit, the credit limit is determined by the formula – net income divided by sales; therefore, if a company . . . . . . gets a good year of sales and no losses, it will have a higher credit limit than a company that has been struggling through a rocky year.
