TAKE CONTROL OF BUSINESS EXPENSES AND CUT DOWN ON PAPERWORK
Monthly Statement with GST Reporting
Your monthly statement allows you to pay all expenses charged to your Card at one time.
You get a detailed, itemised list of business expenses. Where available, the GST payable amount for transactions is provided and meets the ATO’s requirements for GST reporting.* This will assist you when completing your BAS and managing your business expenses at tax time as American Express Business Card statements can act as proof of purchase for taxation purposes, and may substitute for a tax invoice when claiming input tax credit.
The Paperless Option
Choose Online Statements and receive your American Express Business Card Statement online, instead of a paper statement through the post. We’ll send you an email alert each month, letting you know the moment your statement is ready to view on the American Express® secure website.
Online Statements are a completely private and secure way to view statements wherever you are in the world. They are also legal documents and can be used for accounting and taxation purposes.
