OVERVIEW:

Jason A. Duprat, Entrepreneur, Healthcare Practitioner and Host of the Healthcare Entrepreneur Academy podcast presents the pros and cons of having a business credit card. If you choose to have one, he provides tips on how to use the card wisely.

 

EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Jason shares an example of someone who funded their startup with a business credit. He changed his mind on the business and presumed he wouldn’t be held personally responsible for the debt. He was wrong. 
  • To open a business credit card, an officer is required to sign a personal guarantee which makes him/her liable for business expenses. There’s a clause in the contract stating this. 
  • Jason explains the differences between a small business credit card and a corporate credit card. A corporate credit card is more difficult to set up but it holds only the business liable for expenses versus the person. 
  • There are revenue requirements to set up a corporate credit card - $4million in gross revenue. Only C corps and S corps can apply - not LLCs. 
  • The great value business credit cards provide is their point system. Jason’s Chase Preferred card offers 3 points for every $1.00 he spends. For example, if he spends 10k in a year, using the 3-point system, that’s 30k points or $300 in cash value. 
  • Divide your credit card points by a hundred to get an estimate of its value in gift cards or if you were to cash it out.
  • Set up reminders for your credit card payments to avoid paying interest. Jason advises not to trade interest for points. 

 

3 KEY POINTS:

  1. You’re personally liable for your business credit card transactions even if you’ve shut down your business.
  2. Pay off your credit card payments in full and on time to avoid getting hit with interest charges.
  3. There are benefits to using credit cards. For example, you can cash out accumulated points or use them for gift cards or travel expenses. 

 

TWEETABLE QUOTES:

“If you’re responsible and you’ve proven you have a great track record of financial and fiscal responsibility, go for it [a credit card]. Get the extra rewards.” - Jason Duprat
