Q: Is there is a way for one to tell whether or not one is personally liable for a business credit card?

A: If the card is in your name along with a company name and the credit card statements are addressed to the company, that c-o-u-l-d be an indication that the account is in the company name alone. But that still wouldn’t answer the question of whether there’s a personal guaranty underlying it.

The best way to check is just to call the credit card company and ask. And see if it will provide you with a copy of the initial credit agreement that you signed. In the future, make sure you keep a copy of all credit card applications so that you know for sure.
