Some applications will also ask for your personal income.
After filling in your personal information you will move onto section asking for your business information. The credit card company will want to know the name of your business and what name you would like to have printed on the card. They will want to know your business address and phone number.

What is your legal entity (are you a single proprietor, a non-profit group, a partnership or a corporation)? What is your federal tax ID?
When you’ve completed this section you will be asked how many free employee credit cards you would like and what are the names of the employees that should be printed on them?
The credit card company will want to know if you have any balances you want transferred to the new card.
When you have completed the application you will be asked to read the important information about the annual percentage rate, fees and restrictions. Once you have agreed you click the continue button and you will be taken to a secure website to upload the information.
