Credit Card Use for Business Expenses – Company versus Personal Card


Wilson Group conducted an ad hoc survey to get input on credit card policies for business expenses.

At your organization, how do employees with significant business expenses (e.g., those who travel,executives, sales, etc.) pay for them?

Twenty four companies responded:

 46% are issued a company credit card and use that for all expenses,

 16% use their own credit card for expenses and receive reimbursements, and

 38% have a choice to use either card.

If employees are required to use a company credit card, what happens with the rewards/points earned?

Fourteen companies responded:

 28% employees retain the rewards from using the company credit card,

 36% companies own the rewards/points associated with the credit card, and

 36% companies did not have rewards programs associated with the credit card.
