If you’re a Cashplus business customer and have received an invitation for its business credit card, you may be wondering how it scores against the competition.
This is a solid, straightforward business credit card that will do the job just fine, although without giving you any extra perks or rewards. If your business relies heavily on invoices and you need some flexibility to better manage your monthly budget, it may be a good choice.
The rate on purchases is less than competitive, so you really want to avoid carring a balance from month to month. Provided that you don’t, you’ll enjoy up to 56 days of 0% interest on your purchases each billing cycle, which is longer than the average.
In the world of business credit cards, the lack of annual fee is quite uncommon and means that if you use this card responsibly you can get monthly credit completely for free, which somewhat makes up for the lack of juicy perks.
As this card is on the Mastercard network it’s accepted in more than 40 million locations worldwide. You’ll also be able to enjoy access to Priceless Cities experiences.
The Cashplus Business Credit Card is issued on the Mastercard network so it's accepted at nearly 53 million merchants across more than 210 countries and territories.
Pros and cons
- Up to 56 days to spread the cost of purchases (provided you pay off your balance in full each month)
- No annual fee
- A relatively high interest rate on purchases
- Applicants with low credit scores are unlikely to be eligible
- You may be offered an opening credit limit as low as £100

Other popular business cards
You can make manual repayments through Cashplus's app, by logging in to your online banking or over the phone (0330 024 0924). Alternatively you may wish to set up a direct debit.
A direct debit protects you from forgetting to make a repayment and either damaging your credit score, getting hit with a penalty fee (£12) or losing any promotional rates as a result.
You can arrange a direct debit for repayments when you apply for the credit card. The table below shows the options available.
Choose from the following direct debit options for your monthly repayments:
|Minimum amount||Fixed amount||Fixed percentage||Full amount|

Frequently asked questions
What credit limit will I get with the Cashplus Business Credit Card?
If Cashplus is able to offer you this deal, the offer will specify a tailored credit limit based on Cashplus's assessment of your situation and your business. The minimum limit offered on the card is £100, while the maximum is £3,000. Once you've had the card for a while and shown Cashplus that you're reliable, you may wish to apply for a credit limit increase.
Can I withdraw cash using the Cashplus Business Credit Card?
Although it's possible, withdrawing cash from a credit card account is generally not a good idea, as "cash-like transactions" (withdrawing cash at an ATM, getting cashback at the till, spending at a casino, buying currency, etc.) often incur steep fees and/or higher rates of interest.
The cash advance fee on the Cashplus Business Credit Card is 3% (min. £3). For example, if you withdraw £50, you'll incur a fee of £3.00. Withdraw £250, and you'll incur a fee of £7.50.
The interest rate on this part of your balance will be 39.94%, which is 34% more than the standard purchases rate (chargeable from the day of the transaction – the card's usual "up to 56 days interest-free" grace period won't apply).
How much does it cost to use the Cashplus Business Credit Card abroad?
Non-sterling transactions are subject to a 2.99% charge. For example, if you spend 200 euros (£172.28), it'll cost you around £5.15.
What is the minimum payment on the Cashplus Business Credit Card?
Each month you must pay at least 5% of your balance at that point or £10.00 – whichever of the two figures is greater. So if you had, say, £190.00 outstanding, you'd pay £10.00, and if you had £800.00 outstanding, you'd pay £40.00.
Paying only the minimum required amount each month is generally not advisable as it tends to be a very expensive way to borrow money which can lead to persistent debt.
Can I get additional Cashplus Business Credit Cards for my team?
Yes. Cashplus doesn't specify a maximum number of cards you can request. There's no fee for additional cards.
