Small business credit cards provide business owners with easy access to a revolving line of credit with a set credit limit in order to make purchases and withdraw cash. Like a consumer credit card, a small business credit card carries an interest charge if the balance is not repaid in full each billing cycle.
A business credit card can be a convenient way to quickly access financing for short-term needs and increase your company’s purchasing power. It is often marketed as an attractive alternative to a traditional line of credit. Like any source of financing, a business credit card comes at a cost and must be carefully managed.
Without a good system in place, it can be difficult to keep track of—and keep a handle on—credit card spending, which ultimately affects your bottom line. Certain strategies can be utilized to ensure good credit card practices.
