  • Facilitates simpler, faster payment
  • Helps reduce the number of invoices your organisation processes
  • Enables you to analyse spend more effectively
  • Helps improve cash flow

Corporate Purchasing Account

The American Express Corporate Purchasing Account is a virtual account that enables employees to spend whenever and wherever they need to, either on a regular basis or ad-hoc, with the option of customising appropriate controls and full transaction reporting.

  • Effective management of indirect spend
  • Backed by invoice data and VAT reporting across ten European countries, based on individual, departmental or supplier accounts
  • Full invoice detail on every transaction, including full VAT evidence for domestic transactions, supplied in a monthly consolidated invoice

Manage How, When and Where Employees Spend

With American Express Purchasing Solutions, you can protect against out-of-policy spend and fraud with customised purchasing controls. Maintain and set spending limits by transaction, for a specific period of time, at the account or Cardmember level.

Improve Buying Power With Strategic Supplier Initiatives

Accurate purchasing and spending information can place you in a stronger negotiating position with suppliers. Take advantage of discounts from existing contracts and help secure preferential rates in the future.
