Hi Guys, I'm worried about my personal credit score. I want to apply for a business credit card, and I need about £3000 of available credit on it. But I am worried that this will show up on my personal credit-score file as an extra debt, even though it is linked to my business. As that could look bad to lenders, by the time I've added on my own personal debts.

Does anyone have any ideas? Surely things bought through a business via business loans/credit cards don't show up on your personal records, is that correct? Any advice would be great.

The £3000 wouldn't be paid back within the same month, it will probably take about 3-4months to clear it, which is why I have a concern about it showing up on my personal credit file records.
