Americredit Services began as Americredit Financial Services in 1984 as a credit repair company. Our services at that time consisted of Credit Establishing & Re-Establishing, Credit Profile Improvement, Debt Consolidation, Financial Counseling and Bookkeeping & Accounting. Our slogan at that time was, "You have nothing to lose, but bad credit!"
Initially this was a very lucrative and successful business. We helped many individuals, as well as companies, establish or re-establish their credit, improve their credit profiles, or consolidate their debts helping them to avoid bankruptcy. Our services were guaranteed! As years progressed, unscrupulous individuals began to open their doors conducting this same type of business. This led to creditors strengthening their policies and procedures in regards to the disputation of negative or erroneous information, making it more difficult to clean up an individuals' credit profile. Additionally, because these unscrupulous companies were taking people's money but not providing the advertised services, the state began to require licensing and bonding of credit repair companies.
In 1991, Americredit Financial Services ceased all operations in regards to credit repair and only offered Debt Consolidation, Financial Counseling and Bookkeeping & Accounting services. We also decided to diversify and added to our services, Financial Aid/Management Counseling & Consulting, Tax Preparation and Word Processing & Transcribing services to schools and individuals.
In 1996 Americredit Financial Services changed it's name to Americredit Services and consolidated it's services to the following areas:
Accounting & Taxes
Institutional Financial Aid, Finance & Management Consulting
Financial Literacy & Counseling
Word Processing & Transcribing
ACCOUNTING & TAXES
