Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What counts as a trade reference? A. Any trade credit account that has had activity in the past 12 months, whether it be an open account with supplier or even a Home Depot account.
Q. What if I don’t have a bank account? A. If you don’t have a current business banking relationship or bank account, any loan balance on a vehicle, equipment or building loan will work. Fill out the bank reference part of the form with the bank that holds your loan, including your loan reference number.
Q. What information do you ask my trade references? A. The only information we ask your trade references is to confirm the information you provided and whether or not your account is in good standing. That’s it.
Q. What bank information do you ask for? A. We will send your bank a form to verify that you are a customer in good standing. See the sample bank form later in this document. We won’t ask for any balances, types of accounts or anything specific.
Q. What does ‘good standing’ mean? A. It means that you are doing whatever it is that you agreed to do.
