No Pre-set Spending Limit

Don’t be mistaken – the American Express Platinum Business Card is not just another business credit card. It is, in fact, a Charge Card – which is quite different. 

Charge cards require you to pay off the full balance each statement period, which can be up to 55 days from the date of purchase. However, they provide no pre-set spending limits that can give your business greater purchasing power and help improve cash flow. 

Despite the title, having no pre-set spending limit does not quite mean unlimited spending. Purchases are approved on a variety of factors including spending patterns, payment history and credit records. Charge cards also do not incur interest, however, fees will be incurred if the amount is not paid off in full each month.

Unsecured Credit

Many businesses these days are asset rich but cash poor, and borrowing against collateral can be considered quite risky.  Secured finance requires collateral, usually in the form of residential or commercial property. If you lose your assets, you lose everything. 

However, the American Express Platinum Business Card provides access to a corporate credit facility at a minimal cost and, in most circumstances, without the need for additional collateral or security.
