ANZ Business Low Rate review

The ANZ Business Low Rate Credit Card gives you a low-cost and effective way to control your business spending. All of your account information is displayed on your monthly statement. Details for fees, charges, spending and payments are displayed for each individual card.

Features and benefits of the ANZ Business Low Rate

The following ANZ Business Low Rate review should help you know whether this card is right for your business.

  • Complimentary insurances. Unauthorised transaction insurance offers cover up to $37,500 for each cardholder, and a total of $200,000 p.a. for the entire account for a range of events. Check the terms and conditions (available on request) for further information about this cover. This also comes with a Transit accident insurance which pays up to $250,000 to cardholders in the event of an eligible accident while on a journey that was paid for with the account. This gives your employees added protection in the event that they must take a trip for work.
  • ANZ Falcon. ANZ Falcon offers around the clock monitoring of your account for suspicious transactions. If a suspicious transaction is detected, ANZ will notify you to confirm whether you have authorised the card use. If you can’t be contacted, a decision will be made about blocking your account.

Rates and fees for the ANZ Business Low Rate credit card

  • Annual fee. This business credit card attracts an annual fee of $100.
  • Purchase rate. The ANZ Business Low Rate account has a purchase rate of interest of 12.99% p.a. This is charged when you are not eligible for any interest-free days and you use the card for purchases.
  • Cash advance rate. Although still a somewhat high rate of interest of 14.49% p.a., the cash advance rate of interest (applies when the card is used to withdraw cash at an ATM, for example) is still lower than most cash advance rates on personal and business credit card products.
