Frequently Asked Questions

How do you report business tradelines?

As a SBFE member lender we assign purchased debt to your company. We then upload to SBFE which reports the tradelines to business credit bureaus.

What is SBFE?

SBFE stands for Small Business Financial Exchange, an independent non-profit data warehouse that receives borrower data from member lenders and then normalizes and compiles the data before submitting to Dun & Bradstreet, Equifax, Experian, and Lexis Nexis.

Are your business Tradeline legitimate?

Instead of made-up data that some service providers may report, all of our data is actual business debt that is legally assigned to your business.

Will I get a business credit score?

Our tradelines are only one of many input data that bureaus used to create business scores. Your credit will be positively affected.

Can I get funding after receiving trade lines?

Although we can not guarantee funding as many factors go into lender approvals, having positive trade lines on your credit may improve your chances of approvals. We will provide a list of member lenders that use SBFE reports in making credit decisions.
