CHICAGO, December 18, 2017 – PayNet, the premier provider of small business credit assessments on private companies, announces that in October 2017 overall defaults improved among Illinois' small businesses. Of the 18 major industries, defaults improved in 11 and worsened in 7 in the state compared to last month.

Following a 4 basis point drop from September, Illinois' PayNet Small Business Default Index (SBDFI) at 1.64% was 20 basis points below the national SBDFI level of 1.84%. The decline in defaults over the past three months may signal improving financial health in the state. Year-over-year, the national SBDFI increased 2 basis points, whereas Illinois' SBDFI dipped 5 basis points.

The three industries with the worst default rates in Illinois were Transportation and Warehousing (3.65%); Accommodation and Food Services (2.83%); and Information (2.00%). Nationally, Transportation and Warehousing had a default rate of 4.38%, with a difference of +0.17% compared to the prior year, while Illinois had a variance of -0.64%.

Recent increased investment and improved financial health exhibited by Illinois' small businesses set the stage for expansion with low credit risk.

Illinois' PayNet Small Business Lending Index (SBLI) registered at 114.0, outperforming the national SBLI level (100.0) and performing on par with the previous month's state level.

“Recent increased investment and improved financial health exhibited by Illinois' small businesses set the stage for expansion with low credit risk,” asserts William Phelan, president of PayNet.

Brad grew up in a small town in northern Iowa. He studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married his wife one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children.
