The Small Business Administration and Dun & Bradstreet (NYSE:DNB) are teaming up to promote the importance of credit for small-business owners.

The SBA and D&B are encouraging owners to follow five basic steps. These include starting a business credit file, establishing credit history by using your business name for expenses, paying bills on time, monitoring your business credit file, and knowing the credit standing of your customers and suppliers.
