Chase business card questions (@Tiffany)
Newbie here, so patience with me and my question, please. 🙂
I have been studying as much as I can the last few weeks and heard that it is possible to apply for a business card even if I don’t have an official business. I do a lot of business stuff on the side, but have never applied for an official, legal name for my business. For some reason, I must not have been thinking this through completely while applying for the Chase business card and I put down a name for my business and now they are asking for proof of legal name for business. I have my website with that name on it, but nothing better than that.
*What should I do?* Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
You can ask them to change the business name to just your name and let them know youre a sole proprietorship and have not registered for a unique tax ID number. You’d be using your own SSN instead.
And/or get an EIN with your business name. Some states have a form you can file when your legal business name is different than your personal name. This is a pretty normal step in the confirmation process.
Thanks for the quick reply, Tiffany!
I think that’s what I’ll do! Thanks, David!
