Do Business Credit Cards Affect Personal Credit
Did you know that out of all the business credit cards available in the marketplace a small percentage report only to the business credit reporting agencies?
The good news is not all business credit cards impact your personal credit. If a card issuer only reports your credit limit, spending, revolving debt and payment history to a business credit agency then your personal credit will not be affected.
