What Are the Things to Consider When Asking for a Credit Limit Increase

Before requesting a credit limit increase on any business card, it's essential to make sure that you're financially ready. Among some of the most important factors to go over are:

Your Payment HistoryIf you've been able to make all of your card payments on time, every time, you're likely ready for the increased responsibility of a higher credit limit.
The Potential Impact of a Hard Pull on Your Credit ScoreRequesting a higher credit limit for any business credit card will likely initiate a hard inquiry on your credit report. If you're just starting to build your credit, having a hard inquiry now could knock more points off of your score. Cardholders with extensive credit histories are less affected by challenging questions.
Your Current Financial StandingIf you've recently lost your job, lost a significant customer, or experienced other adverse changes in your personal or business finances, it may be best to wait for things to level off before applying. Having consistent income and being in good standing with all of your creditors will give you the greatest likelihood of getting a credit limit increase.
How Increased Spending Power Will Impact Your BusinessGetting a higher credit limit on your card could significantly improve your bottom line. With extra money at your disposal, you can implement more aggressive marketing campaigns, expand your inventory, or invest in much-needed equipment, tools, and other resources. If getting a credit limit increase will make your business more profitable and better able to meet your clients’ needs, use DoNotPay to get the process started today.
