    I would like to get credit card in my business name. Do I just apply for a regular credit card with my business name or are their cards out their specialy for businesses that include more details for businesses such as year end interest paid for tax reasons. Any info would be appreciated

    If u have a business checking account, u should already have a charge card in the name of your business, if not ask your bank they would be happy to give you one...later

    I have totally free business checking account. The only thing is I have to keep a 100 dollar min balance or I get a penalty.<br>As for credit cards....I wish I could give you one of mine!<p>I must get a offer in the mail every day for a pre-approved company card. I don't know where they come from. I think it started when I joined ALCA, because they give your name out to everyone in the world.

    If you are a sole propiatership you don't have to have the card in your business's name. Just have one card to make ALL your business purchases on. Anyways, who wants a business card? who are you going to impress? the clerk at Home Depot?
