Do you require a minimum number of cardholders to be issued with RCBC Bankard Corporate Cards per company?
There is no minimum required number of employees.
How is the credit limit per employee determined?
The authorized signatory/ies of the company assigns the credit limit per employee, depending on their individual requirements.
Can we request for a credit limit request?
Yes. To request for a credit limit increase, you may send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your request will be processed within 2 to 3 banking days. Note that request is still subject for review and approval.
How soon can a card cancellation be effected if request is initiated by the company?
Request will be processed and take effect on the same day. For lost cards, please call our 24-hour Customer Service hotline 8888-1808 as soon as you realize your Card has gone missing for immediate blocking.
How do we pay our RCBC Bankard bill?
Payment can be made via the following:
a. Auto-Debit Arrangement (ADA) from the Company's account
b. Over-the-Counter at any RCBC branches
What can the company do to ensure that all expenses made by employee cardholders are for business related activities and not for personal use?
The company should put in place the Policies and Procedures covering its Corporate Card Program. The best practice is to have the cardholder sign an agreement certifying that he/she has read and agrees to comply with the Terms and Conditions governing the use of his/her corporate card.
How long is the application process?
Once all the documentary requirements are submitted, the standard processing time for a Corporate Card application is 10-15 banking days excluding card delivery.
What is a hold-out deposit?
A hold-out is a deposit account (savings account or current account) held as collateral against a corporate credit card facility. The hold-out amount determines the credit limit for the company, where 95% of the hold-out amount is the maximum corporate limit granted. The 5% is reserved for emergency credit limit increase requirements of the company.
For those active corporate accounts with hold-out deposits and are requesting for the termination of their company’s account, the hold out deposit shall still be subject to a 60-days holding period to give allowance for billings that are submitted late by the merchants.
Is there any benefit to using corporate cards vs. personal cards?
The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) requires top 20,000 private corporations to withhold and remit taxes on local purchases of goods (1%) and services (2%) made by its employees in the course of doing business. However, the BIR issued a Clarificatory Memo stating that if purchases were made using company-issued credit cards, said purchases would not be subject to any withholding tax. The use of corporate cards therefore allows companies to do away with the administrative difficulties associated with the process of withholding tax. (BIR RMC 72-2004).
