About Us

Business Consumer Alliance, Inc. is a non-profit organization which began business in 1928. Prior to 2013, BCA operated as the Better Business Bureau of the Southland. The name was changed to allow for an expansion of the services we provide to consumers and businesses, and to broaden our service area from the greater Los Angeles area to North America.

The broad purpose of BCA is to promote business self regulation. We achieve this objective by assisting consumers in resolving complaints with businesses and using that complaint information along with other relevant information like customer reviews to forecast business reliability. Through a sophisticated algorithm that evaluates several different aspects of businesses, BCA is able to assign letter grades, ranging from AAA to F which assists the public in identifying reputable or disreputable companies.

BCA obtains its funding from member businesses who support the mission and purpose of BCA and who agree to abide by high standards of ethical business practices.
