5 Ways To Build Your Credit From Scratch!

Building credit might be challenging. When you’re new to credit or “credit invisible,” you don’t have enough payment history recorded to the credit bureaus to generate a credit score, so finding a lender who would approve you for a loan can be tricky.

Credit Score Canada

If you primarily use cash and don’t need to borrow money, having no credit history may not seem to be a problem. However, not having a credit history or having a weak credit file could be a roadblock in the way of getting a new home or a pair of wheels when the time comes to finance one. When you apply for a job, rent an apartment, start a utility account, or even purchase insurance, having a great credit history is important.

It is possible to establish good credit from scratch, which is fantastic news because getting started now may help you achieve your financial objectives tomorrow. Here are five strategies to begin establishing credit right away.

Apply for a Secured Credit Card

You should probably start with a secured credit card if you’re starting from scratch to boost your credit score. A cash deposit that you pay at application time, often equal to your credit limit, serves as the security for a secured card. Depending on the card, you can deposit between a certain minimum and maximum. The minimum deposit for many cards is $200 while some provide credit cards that don’t require a security deposit.

Secured credit cards aren’t intended for continuous use. The goal of a secured card is to improve your credit score sufficiently to be approved for an unsecured card, which has superior features and doesn’t require a deposit. Select a secured card with a low annual cost, and ensure that it sends payment information to Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion. Cards that report to all three credit bureaus enable you to establish a more thorough credit history, which is used to determine your credit score.

Secured Credit

Become an Authorized User on Another Credit Card Account

Receiving approval for loans or credit cards can be challenging if you don’t have a history of responsibly managing credit accounts. One method of establishing credit without applying for your credit card is to become an authorized user on someone else’s. You will be added to the primary cardholder’s account as an authorized user, receiving the card that you can use to make purchases (as long as the account owner agrees). Your credit report will include the credit card account and its payment history, allowing you to build a credit history and score.

Ensure the lender reports authorized-user accounts to the credit agencies before requesting a family member or friend to add you as an authorized user. If payments are not reported, this tactic could not be very effective.

Be careful who you choose to borrow credit history from as well. You should not only add yourself as an authorized user on a card when the principal cardholder maintains a low amount and has a stellar payment history.

Good Credit Ontario

Get a Credit-Builder Product or a Secured Loan

The sole objective of a credit-builder loan is to assist borrowers in establishing credit.

In most cases, the lender holds the money you borrow in an account and does not release it to you until the loan is returned. Your payments are recorded with credit bureaus, and it’s kind of like a forced savings program. Most frequently, community banks or credit unions offer these loans.

Another choice is to inquire about a secured loan to establish credit if you have money on deposit with a bank or credit union. These use the funds in your account or a certificate of deposit as collateral. Although it may be much less than your other options, the interest rate is often a little greater than the interest you are now earning on the account

Maintain Low Balance

Your credit scores may suffer if you max out your credit cards. It is best to use your card wisely. The best is to charge less. Maintaining a lower level will help you establish credit because the balance on your credit report, which is often the balance of your most recent account, affects your total score.

Pay promptly

One of the most important components in developing a solid financial history is your payment history. While paying your other debts is important, paying your credit card bills on time is essential to establishing good credit. Making sure that all of your regular monthly payments, including your phone, cable, and utility bills, are completed within 30 days of the due date is highly significant. Bills that have been sent to collections or that have defaulted might stay on your credit report for up to seven years from the date.

I would just like to thank Suma for really making feel comfortable throughout this entire process. Everyone tells you to watch out for gimmicks, quick fixes, and everything else that comes with Debt. Ive had other companies who had made promises and under delivered. However Suma and her team are quick to provide the right answers and guide everyone in a way towards better credit. She has made it seamless with great communication and availability. I have personally referred her to several of my closest friends and i would recommend her to anyone else looking for consolidation.

Frequently Asked Questions

A Debt Consolidation is a negotiated debt settlement offer made between you and your creditors with the help of a Debt Relief Agency in Ontario. Some key benefits of Debt Consolidation are interest-free program, no upfront fee required, combined monthly payment into one affordable amount, no lawsuits, and many more.

Yes, your assets are safe from creditors. A licensed debt relief agency in Ontario will help you come up with an offer to your creditors that will make sure your assets will be out of the paper.

No, in fact, this is one of the great advantages of a Debt Consolidation Program. All wage garnishment will stop from the day you filed the proposal.

The effect on your credit score is not going to be severe. Your credit score will most probably go to R7 Rating and will remain in your credit report for another 3 years after you completed the program. This means that it will not be permanent and you will still be able to rebuild your credit score.


This varies depending on the proposal you will be discussing with the help of a certified debt relief agency. It is also worth noting that debt consolidation cannot exceed more than 5 years.

If a debt is shared, you need to file a joint debt consolidation offer to your creditors. However, in most cases, in which the debts are individually incurred will have no impact on your spouse.

After three missed payments, your debt arrangement with creditors will be broken and you will end up getting chased again for the original debt amount plus interest.

A debt consolidation offer can be paid off earlier if you can. In this way, you receive your “Certificate of Completion” sooner and you can immediately start rebuilding your credit score.

Let’s Just Put It Simple....... Not All Hero's Wear Caps........I spoke with Suma over a fairly lengthy period of time because of my busy schedule and lack of free time on my part, and she was not only extremely patient and understanding, but also beyond helpful And informative. Any question I had and no matter how many times she had to explain it to me she took her time to make sure I completely understood every single step and process before she moved on to the next thing. I have been so stressed out and worked up about my debt and trying to figure out how to fix it all since I know I will not be returning to work at all in the future because of medical issues and being 26 with that realization makes things just that more stressful but Suma made everything so easy and my payments are $100 a month for less then 5 years with no interest or penalties for early pay off. I’m so glad that I didn’t settle with some other place that was asking for $350 + a month for 7-12 years and paying off early would cost you more.
