As someone who is about to finish a Master's in Accounting, the best advice I can give you is to talk to a CPA and go the particulars for you business and personal accounting.

One thing I will ask is how big is you business and how long has it been around? Have you begun to build credit under the company name yet? Do you have a duns#? Do you have trade references for credit yet? If so, are those references currently reporting to credit burrows or do they just do small in house credit?

The reason I ask this, even if your an s/c corp, you will more than likely be signing personal guarantees on loans until the company credit can fully stand on its own.
Just had the "personal guarantee" conversation with my banker. Was told that they always require them when loaning to privately held companies.
