Why use a Business Card?

Whether you’re looking for flexibility in your payments, control over business expenses or just added security, a Business Card from Lloyds Bank could make great sense for your business.

Padlock iconWhat advantages are there for a Business Card compared to just using a personal banking card?

Using any of our Business Cards for spend helps safeguard your home finances in the event of fraud or unexpected expenses. Use of a Business Card is also better commercial practice and keeps your business expenses separate, which is important for VAT and accounting purposes. Using a Business Card helps to safeguard your personal credit rating, because personal funds are not being used for business purposes. We issue Business Cards on an assessment of the suitability of your business and not the individual.

Payments iconI use an overdraft for my payments, so why use a card?

Using a Business Credit Card or Charge Card alongside other bank products may save you money. The cost per transaction could be cheaper than a cheque payment and cheaper than the cost associated with withdrawing cash1.

Using a Business Credit Card or Charge Card can also support more efficient cash flow within the company, with just one monthly payment covering your business expenditure.

Credit card iconWhat business benefits will I get from using a card?

With a Business Credit Card or Charge Card, you can save on transaction fees and benefit from detailed statements to allow you to track and reconcile expenditure more easily, all while paying just one bill each month. Using your Business Card can also help ease your cash flow and prevent unexpected outgoings, while leaving your overdraft available for more urgent expenditure.

Our Mastercard-badged cards mean you can make payments globally, while using a Business Credit Card or Charge Card, and paying it off on time, can also help build a credit score for your business – ideal for new or growing enterprises who may need to borrow at a later date to support growth ambitions.

Person iconHow will I be able to control my employee spend?

Our Business Credit Card or Charge Card allows you to set limits on the amount each employee can spend, to help prevent misuse or overspending. We can also limit who can view your business account details and balances to authorised personnel only.
