If they do, you should leave the social security number field blank. Do not use any number in place of your social security number; rather, just leave it blank. Look over the application. Do not provide a personal guarantee or a credit check. To avoid this, you should fax your application.
If you provide an SSN, the vendor will make their approval decision based on your consumer credit, which will translate to an inquiry on your personal credit. There is no law necessitating the need for a social security number to be supplied on credit applications. Do not use any other number than a social security number in an SSN field. However, you can legally leave the field blank.
Leaving the SSN field blank will make the credit approval decision based on the quality of your business credit reports and business credit scores. If there are enough trade lines reporting on your business, you may access the approvals you’re seeking. Getting initial credit is the hardest part as a lot of vendors do not report to the credit reporting agencies.
