    Business credit card for sole trader 15th Mar 17 at 9:23 AM
    I'm a sole trader and am thinking about taking out a business credit card in my business name so that it looks more professional when I'm making purchases for my business. How can I do that? When you apply for a credit card you fill in your name but I can't find an option to apply for a card as "My Name trading as Business Name". Hope this makes sense. Thanks

    You don't need to impress when making purchases. The only people you need to impress are those that are buying from you.

    Either way, if it important to you speak to the bank that you hold your business account with. They may be able to help. If you don't have a separate business account then you may be out of luck.
