Company credit cards are status quo, but they don’t have to be

If you’re using company credit cards to manage employee spending, the following problems might sound familiar:

  • Someone (not sure who) has spent £1000 on the director’s company card and it’s not the director.
  • Your purchasing team couldn’t get the inventory order through because there was no one available to approve the purchase on the company credit card.
  • Your finance team just sent a company-wide email asking for the VAT receipt for {insert random company expense} to be sent to them by 5 pm today because they need to finish reconciling transactions on the card

It’s an unavoidable reality of doing business, isn’t it? Not with Soldo.

Soldo is a prepaid card and expense management platform designed to optimise your cash flow. As you know, time is money, and Soldo will save you both.

Company credit cards pose unnecessary risks

Company credit cards have long reigned supreme when it comes to a company’s expense management, but they come with risks businesses often assume are unavoidable.

Spending can easily spiral, as finance teams don’t even see what’s being spent by who until statements come through at the end of the month.

The lack of customisable expense management software tools that plague many business credit card systems means it can be difficult to stay within set budgets, even if you can keep track of expenditure in the first place.

With prepaid cards, this isn’t a problem. Because these cards are pre-loaded with a certain amount, there’s no way for employees to go over budget. The cards act as a fund, and because there’s no connection to a bank account or a line of credit, you aren’t exposed to the risks associated with giving out multiple cards to your employees.

team spending

Company credit card approval chains

To counter the security issues associated with company credit cards, businesses often limit spending privileges to directors or senior management. Fraud and the risk of theft are reduced since there are only a few people accountable for the cards.

Although these safeguards make for secure spending, they certainly don’t speed up the process. In fact, they can make managing employee expenses inefficient:

  • Employees have to seek approval from the designated manager to use the card.
  • Then, either borrow the business card or complete the purchase with a personal credit card which adds a reimbursement task to the process.
  • After that, each employee who has used the card needs to retain and correctly store the receipts for account reconciliation.

With company credit cards, a simple purchase can produce a lot of painful processes.

The logistical nightmare of sharing company cards

Ultimately, there are two systems you could end up using when it comes to company credit cards.

The first involves a select few members of management approving every single purchase, leading to extremely slow expense processing.

The second, multiple employees sharing one or two cards. Leading to a logistical challenge as finance teams try to reconcile the spending puzzle of who spent what. Learn more about employee expense reporting.

Card sharing also poses a security risk as details are re-shared over the internet between teams. A risk more likely now with remote working and cyber security vulnerabilities.

Finally, using a company credit card to manage your expenses requires a successful credit check, which isn’t always straightforward, especially if you run a start-up or small business.

Simplify expenses with a comprehensive platform

Get control back with secure spending

This level of control isn’t just good for logistics, it’s good for security, too. As you decide the spending limits of each prepaid card, you always know exactly how much is being spent. This is much more secure than company credit cards, which tend to be far more rigid and difficult to track.

With Soldo’s prepaid business cards, you’ll never have to share card details. Every employee or team can have their own dedicated payment card with its own separate fund. And if a card ever gets misplaced or stolen, you can turn it off remotely in just a click.

What Is a Business Credit Card?

You can get a credit card for your business, but it will still need to be associated with the name of someone who works for the company. However, with prepaid cards like Soldo, you can assign cards to as many people as you need.

Can you get a credit card in a business name?

You can get a credit card for your business, but it will still need to be associated with the name of someone who works for the company. However, with prepaid cards like Soldo, you can assign cards to as many people as you need.

How can I get a business credit card without personal credit

If you have poor personal credit then it can be tricky to get a business credit card. There are providers out there who will offer you one, but they may not have the benefits you were looking for. Alternatively, you could try out one of Soldo’s prepaid card plans, which have no credit score requirements.

How long does it take to get a business credit card?

There’s no precise amount of time it takes to get approved, and the process varies between providers, but you’re likely to get your decision within 5-10 days. After approval, it can take up to ten days for your card to arrive. For faster approvals, why not try Soldo, and you could be up and running the very next day.

How is business credit card limit determined?

Your credit limit will depend on your application, including your personal and business profile. Higher limits may be offered if you have better business or personal credit. You can read more on business credit limits here.

How can I get a higher business credit limit?

You can contact your card issuer to request a higher credit limit, but this may not be accepted, depending on your credit history. With Soldo, however, the only limits are those set by you.

Are there costs associated with credit cards for business?

Yes. Cards can come with a number of charges, including an annual rate, cash withdrawal fee, and interest. Although these vary depending on the provider, there’ll probably be at least one fee or another, so it’s worth researching before you commit to any one card issuer.

How to find the best company credit card for your business?

The ‘best’ credit card will depend on what your business needs. Each provider will offer charges and benefits that are more favourable to some businesses than others. They will also have differing eligibility criteria. Read our guide here for a comprehensive rundown of the best business credit cards.
