Compliance and Business Credit

Compliance, what is it, why is it so vitally important to your business, and how does it relate to Business Credit? Merriam-Webster’s dictionary defines compliance as: conformity in fulfilling official requirements. Think about that for a moment. Official Requirements. From time to time as the owner of a small business you have the need to borrow capital. Its uses could be many. For example; additional inventory, new space, newer equipment, computers, a new phone system, internet marketing or just maybe for an out and out emergency. The business could be relatively new or in existence for several years. It has been showing a profit so you feel quite confident in approaching a lender and requesting a business line of credit.

The process couldn’t be easier right? You feel confident and filled with expectation because whatever you needed the capital for can now be taken care of. In some cases you may have your business checking account with this lender and the lender is familiar with your business. A stressful and heavy burden has just been lifted off your shoulders. At last you can look forward to a good night’s sleep. When you finally receive your letter in the mail you open it only to read “We regret to inform you that your request for credit has been denied.” There is usually no explanation other than your business did not meet Business Credit lending criteria. The cold hard truth is that most businesses do not meet anywhere near the number of Compliances that are required. Why, because they do not know what is required. I can tell you this; most businesses are not in Compliance and I discover this quickly when I speak with a business owner on the phone. In point of fact lenders do not have to share what their lending criteria consists of or how they employ compliance formulas when determining what businesses get approved and what businesses do not.

Knowing what those Compliance requirements are and knowing that your business has met those requirements prior to applying for Business Credit is three fourths the battle. You wouldn’t take your SAT’s without having some clue as to what the questions would be right? Yet on a daily basis business owners do just that. They do not have a clue to the degree of information requested, collected, and verified about their business nor how it’s used for the sole purpose of making credit decisions about their business and because they do not know they put their business in total jeopardy. So if your business were to go through a Compliance Check today would it pass or would it become just another statistic like so many others in 2008, where approximately 1.15m small business were forced to close their doors forever because they could not obtain the capital they so desperately needed? Put the future of your business in the hands of a Business Credit specialist who is familiar with “Official Requirements” Compliances and knows precisely how to make sure your business passes Compliance in flying colors so you can obtain the kind of Business Credit your business needs to flourish.

E-Complish Launches Infographic for PCI Compliance Standards

BALTIMORE, MD (PRWEB) March 30, 2015

E-Complish, a leading payment solutions provider, has launched a new infographic, entitled What Is PCI Compliance, as an educational tool for companies and consumers to learn the importance of PCI Compliance. The infographic aims to simplify the often intricate standards and best practices that comprise consumer data security into easily digestible content for businesses.

E-Complish’s infographic highlights the cost of data breaches, levels of compliance to which a company belongs, and, a key point for consumers, what threats a consumer’s data is vulnerable to when dealing with a non-compliant company.

“E-Complish was one of the first Level 1 Payment Processing companies in the world to achieve compliance under the new PCI Compliance version 3.0 standards, so we felt that it was natural to take the next step and help merchants understand the importance of meeting those standards,” said Stephen Price, CEO of E-Complish. “Our infographic provides companies with a basic – but key – education on consumer data security, what it means to be PCI Compliant, and what comprises the 12 Standards of security.”

PCI Compliance includes 12 Standards which protect credit card holders from fraud and data theft covering Network Security, Cardholder Data Protection, Vulnerability Management Programs, Strong Access Control Measures, Monitoring and Testing Networks and Information Security Policy. These standards are not fully understood or met by many companies, and as a result consumer data is at risk from data breaches carried out by average computer users to targeted attacks.

Companies have faced bank fines, penalties and lawsuits due to data breaches, with a majority (95%) of companies only meeting 3 of the 12 PCI standards in 2013. Compliance levels increase as a business processes more transactions, requiring them to ensure further consumer data security. Credit card fraud cost $ 11.27 billion worldwide in 2012, with 47% of fraud occurring in the United States. E-Complish seeks to educate the public and companies to make data security a priority as debit and credit card usage is seen as a safe alternative to carrying cash.
