    Do you use a separate credit card for business?

    The amount of internet related services that an SME has to sign up to (read: needed for business to run smoothly and efficiently) is quite high. Google Adwords, VoiP services, Facebook ads, etc

    I am thinking of getting a separate card for keeping tabs on companies like Facebook and Google debiting my card with all sorts of sneaky charges.

    I have a separate debit card. Mixing personal and business is way too messy.

    Any business charges have to have a documented reason (i.e. invoice) so it just does not make any real difference.

    I don't, as all business related expenditure is supported by receipts. I was initially planning to, and as I do a lot of business miles, I was looking in particular at a fuel card, but the more options I looked at, the more it became clear that I didn't need one. Credit cards plus receipts.

    That works for me, but whatever works for you.

    Cheers
