The account also offers detailed statements and optional summaries by department or division – features which could be useful for expense reports and financial management across your business. Another key detail of this card is that it offers joint and several liability for the account. This means you can share responsibility between co-owners or partners in the business, rather than holding just one person responsible (as you would with a personal liability business credit card).
