Notice for Incomplete Applications

If you have submitted an application for business or commercial credit, and we notify you that additional items are needed before we can fully evaluate your request, please submit the information within 270 days from your application submission date.

If we do not receive all of the information we requested by that time, we will regrettably not be able to give further consideration to your request. However, we welcome you to submit a new application at any time and we will give it our full consideration.


If you have submitted an application for business or commercial credit, and we have offered you credit on terms that are different than the credit terms you applied for, we are unable to offer you the credit on the terms that you requested.
