NAB Business Card Review

With the NAB Business Card, NAB aim to make it even easier for small to medium sized businesses to operate efficiently without having to fuss with cheques or reimburse your staff from receipts after they have paid the bill from their own pocket. The NAB Business Card gives your business the flexibility of allowing nominated employees the ability to make business transactions with their own company charge card.

NAB Business Card Benefits

  • Interest-free days. Enjoy up to 35 interest-free days on eligible purchases.
  • Interest rates. The NAB Business Card has an ongoing interest rate of 15.5% p.a. on purchases and cash advances.

NAB Business Card Features

  • Interest-free period. The NAB Business Card is a charge card that comes with up to 35 days interest-free on valid business purchases. This offers an opportunity to improve business cash flow, as you have a maximum of 35 days in which to pay off your balance before incurring interest charges.Interest free days don’t include cash advances, which include transactions such as withdrawing cash from an ATM or the purchasing of travellers’ cheques. Cash advances also take into account bills paid at a bank, financial institution or through Australia Post. Cash transactions are charged interest at the cash advance rate from the date of the transaction.
  • Statements. Each month you’ll receive a detailed statement for each cardholder, not just for the total account. This gives you the assurance that you can clearly see which of your employees are making what debits from your business account. This can also make business reporting much easier come tax time.
  • Liability insurance. Another great reason to choose the NAB Business Card for small to medium sized businesses is the complimentary liability insurance.This may cover you in case your employees make an unauthorised transaction on your business’ NAB Business Card. The liability insurance indemnity is limited to $20,000 per cardholder and to $150,000 for the business in each policy year.
  • Individual cardholder credit limits. Gone are the days of having to ask around the office to find out who has the company card or trying to remember who used it last. With the NAB Business Card, multiple staff members can have their own charge card issued. The number of cardholders isn’t restricted so you could give one to each of the employees that needs it, although this comes with a monthly fee of for each additional card.Business owners have the advantage of being able to set individual credit limits for each card. After all, both the staff member who purchases the tea and coffee for the office and the employee who is required to attend a meeting overseas will be required to use their card for business expenses, but most likely on very different scales.By allowing you to set different limits for each cardholder, you can ensure that you have control and flexibility over the expenditures made through the cards whilst allowing anyone you feel in your business should have their own card to have one with a limit appropriate to the business expenses that they may incur.
  • Visa or Mastercard. You can further tailor the NAB Business Card to what suits you and what you prefer by opting to have your NAB Business Cards issued as either a Visa or a Mastercard.Fees will differ per transaction based on which of these options you choose. These fees are percentage of the converted AUD amount shown on your statement.
    DescriptionVisa FeeMasterCard Fee
    Single Currency Transaction3.0%3.0%

  • Personalised cards. The exposure and visibility of your business name and brand is essential, so the NAB Business Card allows businesses to display a personalised design on their card. The NAB business banking sector recognises this, and is focused on helping businesses become successful, not only in big overarching projects but also in the finer details. This can include your business name, logo or graphic.
    This will also help you or your employees to pick out the right card from your wallet!
  • Multiple cards. Regardless of how many individual NAB Business Cards you have, you can monitor it all through one facility which also makes it easier for you to manage the account.
