Credit Application Instructions:

General Information:

The Credit Application can be filled out by someone other than an Owner/Principal. However, the information provided in the Applicant section must be for an individual authorized to sign the Credit Application.

Once a Credit Application is submitted, there is a 60 day period before another Credit Application for the same Corporation or Business Name can be saved. However, you can save a Credit Application for a different Corporation or Business Name, provided no Credit Application for that Corporation or Business Name has been submitted in the past 60 days.

Entry Formats:

Most entries are alpha-numeric and will automatically reformat to uppercase upon exiting the entry.

All dates are in the MM/DD/YYYY format. Dates are checked upon exiting the entry and during any Save Draft not only for formatting, but also for content. The content checks performed upon exiting the entry are primarily to prohibit incorrect future dates.

Any numeric entries are formatted with 2 decimal positions.

For entries which have a dropdown list, the first item in the list is always a blank which can be selected to clear the entry. Attempting to manually clear the entry of a dropdown list using the backspace key does not work as the browser will interpret this a going back to the previous page.

YES/NO entries have associated buttons that will populate the entry with an uppercase Y or N. If necessary, the entries can be manually cleared.

Required Entry and Conditionally Required Entry:

Required Entries are independently required, regardless of any other entries.

Conditionally Required Entries are required or not required based upon other entries.

Examples of Conditionally Required entries:
1. If you answer YES to the Bankruptcy Ever Filed question, then the associated Date Filed entry is required. If you answer NO, this conditional entry is not required.
2. In the Applicant section, the Email Address is only required if the Electronic Signature is YES.

Only Submit checks the Required and Conditionally Required entries. Save Draft does NOT check these.

Save Draft and Submit:

The Save Draft buttons save all entries on the Credit Application regardless of your location on the form.

The Save Draft buttons do NOT evaluate either Required or Conditionally Required entries. However, it does enforce some formatting rules, such as Date formats which could potentially cause the save process to break. It also performs some data evaluations, but these are currently limited to checking for State entries not matching a known US State, US Territory, or Canadian Province. If this evaluation discovers any issues, they are displayed in a pop-up window. These are only warnings and do not adversely affect the Save Draft or Submit functionality.

Using the Save Draft buttons minimizes possible data re-entry in the event that a problem develops while you are completing the form.

The Credit Application does NOT need to be completed all at once. Once an initial Save Draft is performed and an Application# is assigned (will be dispayed at the bottom of the form), the Credit Application will remain available for editing until such time as a Submit is performed. This is not restricted by any time limits.

The Submit button evaluates both the Required and Conditionally Required entries. If the results of the evaluation are successful, a Save Draft is performed, then the Credit Application is flagged as completed, but unsigned.

When you use the Submit button, you are indicating that you have completed the Credit Application.

The Credit Application can NOT be reviewed by our Credit Department until it has been submitted and signed.

Upon submission, a confirmation email will be sent to you on behalf of our Credit Department. If the Business Structure of the submitted Credit Application is Individual, then a second email will be sent requesting the completion of an Individual Credit Profile Authorization form (the email contains a link to the form).

If the Electronic Signature entry equals YES, then an email will be sent from Adobe EchoSign (on behalf of our Credit Department) to the Email Address specified for the Applicant.

If the Electronic Signature entry equals NO, then the Credit Application must be printed using the link provided (at the bootom of the form), then signed and dated, then sent to Anderson by email, mail, or fax:

Email Address: credit@andersonequip.com

Mail Address: Anderson Equipment Company, PO Box 339, Bridgeville, PA 15017

Fax Number: 412-504-4254

NOTE: If you choose the Electronic Signature option, but subsequently changed your mind. You can use the View/Print link (at the bottom of the form) to print out the form, then after signing and dating it, you can send the form to Anderson via email, mail, or fax.

Email, View/Print, and Open Links:

After the initial Save Draft, a link to Email our Credit Department appears at the bottom of the form. This link can be used to email any file attachments, such as a tax exemption certificate, etc.

After the Credit Application has been submitted, two additional links appear at the bottom of the form.
1. A link to View/Print the Credit Application. This link can be used view or print the submitted Credit Application until such time as another Save Draft is performed indicating the start of a new Credit Application.
2. A link to Open the Individual Credit Profile Authorization form. Completion of this form is mandatory for Credit Applications with a Business Structure of Individual. For all other Business Structures it is only necessary if requested by our Credit Department.

After a Submit, the form blanks out in preparation for any future Credit Application by you. However, some entries and sections (such as Corporation or Business Name, etc) will pre-populate with entries from the last submitted Credit Application.
