Business Credit Card

Business Credit Card

After opening your business bank account (and getting a debit card), you may also want to get a credit card for your LLC.

Business credit cards offer more rewards than just a debit card, such as cashback and travel.

Getting a business credit card also help builds your LLC’s credit history, which is separate from your own personal credit.

When applying for an LLC credit card, you will need:

  • Federal Tax ID Number (aka EIN)
  • your social security number
  • business address

We recommend using CreditCards.com to compare the latest business credit cards.

      Hi Frank, I believe so, but not 100% sure. I think you’ll need an ITIN (Individual Taxpayer Identification Number). I think there are companies that help foreigners build credit history, but I don’t know anything about this space yet. Proceed with caution though as their could be some shady companies out there. I’d say the best way to go about it is open a business account and a personal account at the bank (in the state where you for your LLC). Then after you establish some history with them, visit the brach in person and ask about obtaining a credit card. Hope that helps. Feel free to keep me posted. I’m curious to hear what you come with.
