Business Credit Cards

Business credit cards let small businesses earn rewards on business purchases and manage expenses properly. They allow business owners to separate business expenses from personal expenses, give employee cards, and receive exclusive access to events that are ideal for entertaining clients or treating staff, etc. Many small business credit cards come with perks such as 0% interest on purchases and balance transfers, customized business credit lines, cash back or travel rewards for spending at gas stations, restaurants, office supply stores.

Compared with personal cards, business credit cards tend to have higher credit limits. And business credit cards may offer better rewards on certain purchases such as office supplies, gas, etc. If you don’t own a corporation or LLC, you can still apply for business credit cards as a sole proprietor – just use your own name as the business name and use your Social Security Number (SSN) as the Tax ID in the application. See detailed explanation on how to apply for business cards as an individual.
