New FICO Scoring Model Makes it Easier To Qualify for Small Business Loans

New FICO Scoring Methods Make it Easier for Millions of Americans To Qualify for Small Business Loans and Working Capital.

FICO recently announced credit scoring revisions expected to increase the powering power of individual consumers and small business owners nationwide.

FICO, the leading provider of credit scoring data in the USA, has revealed major changes to how it tabulates credit scores. As the company rolls out the new scoring system FICO anticipates that literally tens of millions of borrowers will feel a significant benefit.

FICO scores are an essential element in approximately 90% of all lending decisions made in the USA, so the change is an especially positive development for small business owners needing loans. Millions of customers of those small businesses will also now find it easier to secure credit cards, lines of credit, and consumer loans to pay for their purchases.

FICO made the changes because it believes that the new formula and approach gives lenders a more accurate and reliable gauge of borrow risk or credibility. Under the new guidelines, FICO will not penalize borrowers who have already repaid debts that were in collections or those who entered into a repayment agreement that they are upholding in a responsible way. Similarly, unpaid medical bills will not be weighted as heavily when calculating credit scores.

The new calculations should be a windfall for borrowers in the coming months. Under the new system, for example, the FICO scores of many Americans will rise by as much as 100 points. That will open the doors to new borrowing opportunities as well as more affordable rates and friendlier terms. A low credit score can mean paying higher rates or having a loan application completely rejected. Meanwhile, a higher score can invite exclusive perks, including preferential interest rates on small business loans.

“Lenders will begin receiving these updated scores by the end of the year,” explains Meghan Robinson, the CEO of Sunovis Financial, a firm that specializes in quick, affordable, customized loan solutions for small businesses. “That means that right now is an ideal time for anyone wanting a business loan to start shopping around and gathering the documentation required for the application process. We expect to see a surge of activity at Sunovis over the coming weeks and months, and encourage business owners to act now before interest rates trend higher.”
