Account Setup and Billing
You can set up your business card account billing in one of three ways: Central Bill, Central Bill with Memo Statement or Individual Bill. Choose the option that's right for your organization. Your account will automatically default to a Central Bill Account. For a product with rewards, pooling is used to accumulate and award rewards points to the Central Bill Account rather than the individual account; meaning employees under the account will not earn or redeem rewards. With an Individual Bill Account, rewards are earned and redeemed at an individual level.
Central Bill links all credit cards in your company together, helping you to better manage your expenses. Details on Central Bill:
- The Authorized Officer can view and track all transaction activity for each business card account, as well as manage payments.
- The Authorized Officer receives a consolidated statement that lists all of the Employee Cardmember transactions and is responsible for making the payment.
- Employee Cardmembers do not receive a statement. While employee cardmembers are able to spend on an account, the earn from that spend rolls or "pools" to the Central Bill Account. Only the Authorized Officer is able to view and redeem rewards.
Central Bill with Memo Statement
This billing method allows Employee Cardmembers to see their monthly spending activity. Here's how it works:
- The Authorized Officer continues to receive a consolidated statement that lists all of the Employee Cardmember transactions.
- Each Employee Cardmember receives a memo statement detailing their individual expenses. The Authorized Officer is still responsible for making the statement payment. While employee cardmembers are able to spend on an account, the earn from that spend rolls or "pools" to the Central Bill Account. Only the Authorized Officer is able to view and redeem rewards.
With Individual Bill, the Employee Cardmember has more responsibility:
- Each Employee Cardmember receives a monthly statement that lists their individual expenses.
- The Employee Cardmember is responsible for making the payment by the due date listed on the statement.
- A unique credit card number is assigned to each Employee Cardmember, including the Authorized Officer.
- Rewards are earned on each individual card (if applicable).
Answers to top questions
If your account is set up for Central Bill, your business card account is set up with one Central Bill Account Number that is assigned to your overall account. That account number is only used for billing management and it is not a credit card number.

Here is where the Company Profile Number, Credit Card Account Number, and Central Bill Account Number are located on a Central Bill:

Payments received by 7 p.m. Central Standard Time (CT) on normal business days are applied on the same day. Payments received on Saturdays, Sundays, or holidays will post the next business day. Any payment received after 7 p.m. CT on the due date will be assessed a late fee.
Central Bill: Yes, you may send in a payment before the due date on your statement. The payment will apply to the current company balance and free up your available credit for the month. Multiple payments can be made in a statement cycle, however each card credit line will only refresh to twice the amount of their credit line. So as an example, if the card has $2,000.00 credit line and makes one or multiple mid cycle payments, the credit line will cap at $4,000.00.
Individual Bill: Cardmembers can make multiple payments to individual bill accounts throughout the month and the account will refresh after each payment.
If your billing method is Central Bill, the Authorized Officer or Authorized Representative can view minimum payment due information in the central bill account under "Payables Account" in the Servicing section.
Your cardmember program includes spend limits and payment controls that you can set for both the company and/or employee, depending on your account type. The Authorized Officer can request an individual cardmember's spend limit be changed at any time.
Central Bill Accounts
Central Bill Accounts have a credit limit for the entire company, while each Employee Account assigned to the Central Bill Account has an individual spend limit as determined by the Authorized Officer.
Individual employee spend limits can be adjusted from $100 to the maximum of the company credit limit.
Important note: The sum of all employee spend limits may exceed the company credit limit. See the example below:
The company will not be allowed to spend past its credit limit; nor will an Employee Cardmember be allowed to spend past its assigned spend limit. Therefore, once the sum of all cardmember spending has reached the company credit limit, the Authorized Officer should make a payment so that all cardmembers will be able to continue to use their cards.
Individual Bill Accounts
Individual accounts are assigned a credit limit that is unique to the individual employee.
Payment controls allow you to customize each employee's business card to control where, when, and how your employees use them. This helps to minimize your company's risk, while giving your employees the freedom to use their cards appropriately.
Easily set controls that limit card use by:
- Time of day or day of week
- Geographical location—both domestic and international
- Merchant type—for example the ability to allow "gas station only" purchases
- Transaction dollar amount limits
- Transaction types, such as cash advances or cash withdrawals
To set up customized controls, log in to myaccountaccess.com.
