There is a connection if you gave a PG at time of applying, resulting in a hard inquiry, and if you default, resulting in a CO, judgement,  or some other deragatory statement on your CR.

In my case, the business cc does not show up on my personal FICO reports. Same with business gas cards. Although I am a small business owner, I did incorporate. You may want to discuss with your accountant.

It can be.. However, if you build your biz credit up correctly you should never need to PG anything!
