Corporate Credit Cards

An updated Corporate Credit Card policy is available to support the use of University Corporate Credit Cards.

Corporate Credit Card policy

The policy outlines the circumstances in which it would be appropriate to issue a member of staff/school with a corporate credit card.  The policy also outlines the cardholder responsibilities. The policy can be found on the Finance Policies and Procedure page.

Who can apply for a Corporate Credit Card?
