    Supplementary Card 3rd Dec 17 at 8:55 PM
    Hi everyone!

    I hope this is the right forum!
    I have been purchasing a flat now for 17+ weeks () but for my job, I need a credit card to pay for travel expenses. It has been suggested that a family member apply for a card and name me as a supplementary card holder but I don't want to do anything that will affect my credit rating or my debt to loan ratio. Does anyone know if whether it will appear on my credit report if I am a supplementary card holder or will it only appear on the family members?

    Thanks for the advice! Really appreciated.

    Additional cardholders have no credit agreement. The account only appears on the account holder's files.
