Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
From the link Rodman provided here is a screen cap of the section he was pointing out.

Rodman,

Can you tell us how building credit for your business ultimately helps you? I am sure a lot of people don't know the advantage to this.

Oh cool, thanks Rodman, I'll check it out after I submit my LLC paperwork and SS-4. I went right to my states website and the irs.gov website and they provide all the paperwork for free to file LLC and corps for the do it yourselfer like myself.

Rodman, what did they give like a $300 credit line, since your business didn't have any established credit?

Yes, I submitted my LLC paperwork this week, so I should have my EIN by next week, so I can start establishing business credit, might need it someday you never know.

Im sorry I have been so busy. Ive been working way more then I used to now that I moved to Orlando. Im not complaing. YES it was 500.00 to start. I got one through Home Depo$500.00, Office Depo $300.00 Mobile Gas credit card for $500.00. doesnt sound like much but its a start to building business credit.

As far as I know, the whole point of a corporation is to give a business the same legal rights as a person, while maintaining it as a seperate entity. They might just be asking for your personal information to either put a name on the card (for signature purposes) or have an actual name for personal contact?

Staples does it as well. I have gotten Staples and Office Depot. I have been unable to get Home Depot or a gas card. Which gas company did you use to get the card. My credit limit for Staples was $800.00, Office Depot was $250.00.
