Charge Card

AF’s Charge Card enables you to manage business spend through your AF account – even if the spend wasn’t made through AF or its suppliers.

Charge Cards can be supplied to your staff removing the need for petty cash and expense claims. Credit limits can be managed per card, allowing varying credit limits on your account.

When used with AF approved suppliers, the card functions as an ID card and items are billed straight to your AF account.
By billing all of your business expenses to your AF account, you will benefit from just one monthly direct debit, giving you ease of administration.

There is no annual card fee (minimum £100 spend per card per annum) and no service charge is applied to purchases from non-AF suppliers.
