If you’re a small business owner, the CommBank Business Interest-Free Days credit card gives you a way to keep personal and work spending separate – which could save you time preparing your tax returns and lodging BAS (Business Activity Statements).

How to apply

If you think this is the right card for your business, you can apply online by filling out a secure application form. Get started by checking that you meet the following eligibility requirements and have all the details and documents you need to apply.

Eligibility criteria

  • Residency. You must be legally allowed to work in Australia. If you are on a visa, you should provide details of that visa and proof that you can work in Australia.
  • Business status. As this is a personal liability card, you can only apply for it if you are the owner of the business and plan to use it for business spending.

Card benefits

  • Interest-free days. When you pay your closing balance in full by the due date each statement period, you can get up to 55 days interest-free on purchases. Note that interest-free days do not apply when you carry a balance, including from a balance transfer.
  • Balance transfer offer. Get 5.99% p.a. on balance transfers for 5 months when you move an existing balance across to this account. At the end of the introductory period, any remaining debt from the balance transfer will attract the card's cash advance rate of 17.57% p.a.

Rates & fees

  • Annual fee. The Business Interest-Free Days credit card attracts an annual fee of $60, which is competitive when compared to other business credit cards.
  • Additional cardholders. If you want to share this account with employees, a $60 annual fee applies for each additional card.

    When you check the CBA website it says nothing about the $250 cash back offer. Are you sure that the $250 cash back offer is still being offered? Why wouldn’t CBA promote this on their site?

    Can this card be linked to a frequent flyers program?

      Hi Richard. The Commonwealth Bank Business Interest Free Days Credit Card doesn’t earn reward points, but rather gives cardholders access to discounts on certain products. These discounts are currently offered on some Commonwealth bank, Dell, Toll Priority and Cellarmasters products. Frequent flyer accounts can’t be linked to this card, although they can be linked to the Business Awards credit card. Thanks for your question.
