    I have recently closed my law office (Jan 1, 2012). I thought about applying for a couple of business cards while I still can but wondered how those applications would affect my credit score. If I apply for a business card, will I get a hard pull on my account?

    Thanks for the help

    If its your personal SSN yes the hard pull will be against you.

    However the cards/limit/usage is not listed on your personal credit report

    You can always apply for business cards regardless of whether or not you have a 'formal' business.
