Benefits of the NAB Business Card

  • Interest-free days. If you pay your balance in full by the end of the statement period, you can enjoy up to 35 interest-free days on eligible business purchases. Please note that interest-free days don't apply to cash advances, including ATM withdrawals and travellers' cheques.
  • Interest rates. The NAB Business Card has an interest rate of 15.5% p.a. on purchases.
  • Additional cardholders. If your employees need to make purchases, you can request additional cardholders to link to the one account. You can personalise these cards with individual credit limits and order the card with specific names.
  • Mobile wallet. You can link your NAB credit card with Samsung Pay or Apple Pay to make contactless payments using your qualifying device at the checkout.

Features of the NAB Business Card

  • Annual fee. This card comes at the cost of a $108 annual fee. Please note that monthly fees also apply to any additional cards.
  • 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. The NAB Business Card comes with liability insurance which protects your account against unauthorised transactions. The liability insurance indemnity is limited to $20,000 per cardholder and to $150,000 for the business in each policy year. Please see the policy information booklet on the NAB website for more information about the eligibility requirements, cover available and how to make a claim.
  • Individual cardholder credit limits. As mentioned, you can request additional cardholders under the single account and set individual credit limits for each card depending on your employee's spending needs. There isn't a limit to how many cards you can request, so you can apply for as many additional cards as you require. However, please note that monthly fees also apply to any additional cards.
  • International transaction fee. If you use the card to make transactions overseas or in a foreign currency online, the card charges a 3% foreign transaction fee.
  • Credit limits. The overall facility credit limit minimum is set to $5,000.
  • Accessing your accounts. The NAB Business Card can be used to pay for purchases online, over the phone, in person or at any outlet where Visa or Mastercard are accepted. The card can be used at ATMs to withdraw cash or to pay for purchases via EFTPOS. NAB Telephone Banking is also available. This facility allows you to hear the details of your last five transactions or to transfer cash from your regular NAB business banking account into your account, if required. Transactions can be viewed online either by NAB Internet Banking or NAB Connect via the NAB’s secure online banking portal. As a Visa card, you can use this card in millions of locations around the world wherever Visa is accepted.
  • Repayments. As a charge card, the closing balance of the account must be paid in full by direct debit each month.
