Business credit cards can be a useful tool for
entrepreneurs during business startups, emergencies,
or even in the day-to-day running of a business.
While business credit cards operate much in the
same way as personal credit cards, there are several
benefits of using business credit cards for business
financing as opposed to a business owner using
a personal credit card or other payment methods.
Here are several benefits of business credit cards:
Credibility Business credit cards can
make a small or online business appear larger
or more legitimate than other payment methods.
Using business credit cards also contributes to
a business credit rating which, if used properly,
can build future trust in the company.
Convenience If funds are needed immediately,
such as in a business emergency, a business credit
card can offer a solution if cash isnt readily
Record-Keeping When business credit cards
are used for business purchases, the credit card
company automatically keeps a record of all transactions
which are sent to the business owner in a statement.
This is especially useful during business travel
or business entertainment situations, where the
business owners attention might not be as
focused on recording all spending.
Time Just like with personal credit cards,
business credit cards give a business owner time
to pay for purchases rather than paying entirely
up front, making them ideal for large business
Protection Also as with personal credit
cards, business credit cards offer a certain amount
of protection on purchases by a business owner,
where cash or other payment models wouldnt.
This would come in handy if the business owner
received defective goods but couldnt obtain
a typical refund, or if there were problems while
on a business trip with travel arrangements.
Perks Business credit cards can offer
similar perks to personal credit cards, such as
cash back or frequent flyer miles which might
be a worthwhile perk for heavy business travelers.
