Applying for a corporate card

Before applying for a University corporate card you must be able to demonstrate your need for the card, for example your role involves the regular purchase of goods and services for the University.

Once your need for the card is established, the first step is to fill out the Corporate Card Application and Agreement Form and have it signed by your supervisor. The form then needs to be approved by your finance director or associate director finance, and sent to the Corporate Card Administrator. The Corporate Card Administrator will lodge the application with National Australia Bank on completion of a 100-point ID verification. The NAB takes between 5-7 working days to process a card once the application has been lodged.

Please note, you must complete Spendvision training before you can be issued with a corporate card.

Corporate cards can also be issued for travel expenses, however this involves a separate approval process. For details refer to the Finance and Accounting Manual’s Travel Policy or the University’s Travel site.
