Payment solutions to help your business thrive

An overview of your Program

Your Company’s American Express Corporate Card Program is so much more than a Card. Providing a complete business payment solution, we’re by your side to save you time and money so that you can grow your business – whether that means reinvesting in your top line or driving the performance of your bottom line.

We understand that individual employees have different needs. So we have a suite of Corporate Cards available to ensure you match the right Card with the right people in your organisation. Our robust suite of products deliver savings, productivity and a touch of status for individual employee spend.

Liability Options

We provide two liability options to help your Company meet the appropriate level of risk exposure you’re looking to control:

  1. Combined Liability: your Company and your Card Member are jointly and severally liable for charges. The exception is when charges are the result of unauthorised use by a third party, or are personal in nature (and do not accrue a benefit to your organisation), in which case your Company is not liable.
  2. Full Corporate Liability: your Company is liable for all charges, except charges that result from unauthorised use by a third party. (If the Corporate Card account is established with a corresponding Card and in the name of an individual Card Member.)

Spend controls

Many companies seek the ability to control employee Card use for certain categories of expenses, so we offer a range of solutions to help you to set specific controls at the Card, industry or supplier level. Working with our experienced team, you may choose to set custom controls at selected suppliers by providing a preferred supplier list, or set additional controls at specific merchant locations. You may also wish to set customised controls over spend in particular categories (like office supplies or travel suppliers). Our model and experience ensure you’re supported to identify the right products and controls for your Company’s needs.

Fraud prevention

With predictive algorithms designed to identify and communicate any fraudulent activity in your Program, our systems and solutions give you the peace of mind that Card Member accounts are protected. To assist in fraud prevention, we offer mobile fraud alerts, Chip & Pin technology and SafeKey® functionality, to ensure your Card Members are safe and secure when purchasing.

Billing & payment options

When it comes to the billing and payment of your account, your Company has the option to manage this centrally or through individual Card Members, depending on the needs of your organisation.
