Our verdict

Offers 4.99% p.a. on balance transfers for the first 12 months and a $0 first-year annual fee, which goes to $200 after that.

The Westpac Altitude Business Platinum Credit Card comes with practical tools and perks to help keep track of business expenses. This includes automated bank feeds for accounting platforms like MYOB and complimentary travel and purchase insurance options. Right now, it also offers 4.99% p.a. interest on balance transfers for the first 12 months. While there are personal credit cards that offer 0% balance transfer rates, not many business credit cards in Australia have balance transfer offers. But if you're planning to consolidate or pay off existing debts, it's still worth comparing a few options before you apply.

Pros

  • $0 first-year annual fee
  • 4.99% p.a. on balance transfers for 12 months
  • Up to 2 points per $1 on eligible spending
  • Complimentary insurances

Cons

  • $200 annual fee after the first year
  • Only offers 1 additional cardholder
  • 3% foreign transaction fee

The Westpac Altitude Business Platinum Credit Card offers a $0 annual fee in the first year, which goes to $200 p.a. from the second year on. It also has a $0 additional cardholder fee and unauthorised transaction insurance. Just make sure you think about whether the potential value you'll get from points and other features is enough to justify the annual fee after the first year.

HI! I am after the best credit card to get as many Qantas points as possible. I am a business owner and will be using the card for all my purchases that I can. I will be paying the owed money before due date and don’t want any fees associated with any purchases.

Hi Jono,


Thank you for reaching out.


You can start compare business credit cards using our comparison table. Looking at it, it shows that American Express Qantas Business Rewards Card gives the higest point at 1.25 per dollar spent while the NAB Qantas Business Signature Card gives .66 points per dollar spent.


The good thing is American Express Qantas Business Rewards gives 120,000 bonus Qantas Points when you were approved on or before July 2019. While NAB Qantas Business Signature Card gives 100,000 bonus Qantas Points (terms and conditions apply). Feel free to check the linked pages should you wish to review them further.


Hope this helps! 😊


Kind Regards,

Mai

Hi, can you earn Qantas FF points on the AMEX card for international transactions, or is it only domestic?

When paying the ato using altitude business platinum amex card, what is the qantas frequent flyer earn rate per dollar.

Hi Ian,


Thanks for your inquiry.


Sorry for the delayed reply. You can actually earn 1 Altitude Rewards point per $1 spent on ATO payments using your Westpac Altitude Business Platinum Credit Card.


As for the Qantas points, if you opt into the Qantas frequent flyer program (instead of the Altitude Rewards) linked to this card, the rate would be 1 Qantas point per $1 spent and the Qantas points will go straight to your Qantas frequent flyer account.


Cheers,

May
