I've been building a small company for some time, getting all ducks in a row, etc. Lots of work but its fun and getting it all set up on the side while still working my full time job.
Anyway, on the day I filed my LLC with the state I also applied for my F-EIN from the IRS and immediately went to work building my business credit.
Same day I was instantly approved for a Capital One Spark buciness cash back and an AMEX corporate gold card. Not bad for the first hour as an entity. For those looking to start out with biz credit I just wanted to share my experience.
Just keep in mind that Capital One Spark reports to your personal credit each month and don't think it reports to any business credit reports but I don't monitor mine really so they might now.
My Sparks reports to EX and EQ business
Yes, I believe spark reports to both personal and business reports equally. AMEX biz/corp cards report strictly to business reports unless you become really delinquent and they have to come after you
