As a trusted global brand with over 150 years of experience, American Express has helped thousands of small, medium and large size businesses to power and grow their businesses here in the UK and overseas. At American Express, from paying suppliers and extending cashflow expenses to managing employee expenses to driving high spending customers to your business – our suite of business solutions are designed to streamline payment processes and get rewarded for it along the way.

Supporting your supplier payment needs:
Managing supplier payments - whether domestic or overseas - can be challenging for any business owner and crucial to keep your business moving. For your domestic supplier needs, and depending on your business size, a Small Business Card can help you to manage your business cashflow whilst earning Membership Rewards® points on all eligible business purchases, which can be redeemed for technology, gift cards, travel or statement credits and more.

And for businesses looking to expand internationally or with global footprints, we know it’s important to stay ahead of the ever-changing and complex financial markets to protect your bottom line. This is a complex area, where businesses often seek advice, but there are some measures that business owners can implement to ensure their businesses steer clear of unnecessary disruption and continue going from strength to strength. This includes speaking to dedicated FX experts who have an eye on the markets or managing volatility through Forward Contract and Market Orders to secure future exchange rates you’re happy with. With American Express® Foreign Exchange and International Payments, you have access to these tools and our dedicated team of experts to support you along the way. All customers have access to our simple online platform which allows you to check real-time exchange rates before making a transaction, giving you full transparency of the costs.

With an eligible American Express® Business Card, you’ll earn our flagship Membership Rewards points on international payments as well as your domestic spend – to use as you choose across flights, statement credits or gifts for your employees.

Managing your employees’ expenses:
For larger businesses, payment needs extend to managing the expenses of employees and giving them purchase power to keep the business moving and the workforce engaged. Whether it’s a focus on travel and entertainment costs or paying suppliers, our suite of Corporate specific solutions streamline this process and give Finance Directors the full visibility and access to manage costs in one place.

Consolidating all your travel expenses into one simple centralised account with a Business Travel Account, enables travellers to book business travel without physical Cards and allowing for reconciliation of all travel costs through one simple monthly statement.

Buyer Initiated Payments let buyers quickly and efficiently schedule payments to suppliers via one simple web portal. It can integrate easily into your Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software without disrupting existing Accounts Payable (AP) processes.

With vPayment, you can simplify supplier payments with secure solutions for each transaction, including adjustable payment amounts, date ranges and transaction details to improve control, so you can spend more time on your business.

A Corporate Purchasing Card can help to track your business spending, simplify reconciliation, and negotiate rates with suppliers. From user to authoriser, managing expenses with a Corporate Purchasing Card makes it easier for your business to get to work on what matters.
