  • Better cash flow management when you use your business credit card replace cheques and to support you during the peaks and troughs of your business cycle

  • Save time by separating business from personal expenses, with additional expense management reports available

  • Flexible cardholder controls over spending limits and transactions types for employees to make business-related credit card purchases

  • Greater transaction security with protection against fraudulent use potentially covered by company liability insurance.


Other benefits, depending on which Westpac business credit card you choose, include:

  • A choice of 2 liability structures to suit your business - personal vs. joint and several liability
  • Rewards programs, including Qantas Business Rewards or Altitude rewards
  • Complimentary insurance on selected cards, including cover for travel and business inconvenience.
