What is a business credit card?

The core function of a business credit card is to provide short-term access to funds. This can help businesses make purchases while they wait for incoming or slow payments from customers. With the benefit of interest-free days, businesses may also improve their cash-flow.

NAB business credit cards are business liability cards, meaning the business is responsible for the account. They have been designed to be held and used by a business entity instead of an individual.

The benefits of a business credit card

Business credit cards offer several practical benefits specifically designed to benefit business owners.

Help separate your expenses at tax time

Using a business credit card can help you separate your personal and business expenses, giving you a clear picture of business spending to make record keeping far easier.

  • Monitor cash flow and reporting more easily.
  • Avoid the need to analyse each transaction to determine what was personal and what was for business.
  • Fees charged to a business account are considered a business expense, so they will be tax deductable.

Manage employee spending

If you have staff who have travel and entertainment expenses, or who need to make purchases on behalf of the business, a business credit card will help you keep track of their spending. 

  • A business owner can set spending limits for each cardholder and can quickly block cards, making it easy to control how the cards are used.
  • Detailed monthly statements per cardholder and one for your overall business card facility will help you with your account reconciliation and tax preparation.

The NAB Business Card is a great choice for this as it allows businesses to provide employees their own charge card, with transactions made viewable online via NAB Internet Banking or NAB Connect.

Improve business cashflow

NAB business credit cards provide short-term access to funds with interest-free days. This means businesses have more time to make payments without incurring interest, which helps improve cashflow.

The NAB Low Rate Business Card is best suited to maximising cashflow, with up to 55 interest-free days on business purchases (excluding cash advances).  New and approved NAB Low Rate Business Card customers can also take advantage of our 0% p.a. on purchases for 12 months offer.

Simplify business spending

NAB business credit cards make business purchases for employees and business owners quick and easy, by removing the hassle of reimbursing employees who use their personal cards.

As your business grows and employees change, it’s also easy to make updates within your facility.

NAB business credit cards also work with digital payments, allowing easy payments online or on the go using a smartphone or wearable.

Choosing the right business credit card

  • your capital expenses (what you spend on maintaining or growing your business)
  • how many employees need access to funds held within your business account
  • functionality and ease of business expense management
  • fees and interest rates
  • if you want to earn rewards or benefits for what your business spends.
