How to pay for business insurance and earn credit card rewards points
Business insurance is not a ‘one-size-fits-all’ proposition.
Depending on your industry and how your business operates, there can be any number of insurance products you might need to protect yourself and your assets.
These can be tailored to suit your needs through an insurance provider or a business insurance broker.
No matter the size of your business, there are some common insurances that many companies take out including building insurance, public liability insurance, professional indemnity insurance, business insurance, business interruption insurance, management liability insurance, cyber liability insurance and tax audit insurance.
These types of insurances can cover you for everything from slips and injuries to employees or customers at your workplace to damage and theft of your products, storm damage bringing your business to a halt and covering you with help from accountants and lawyers if you get called in for a time-consuming tax audit by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).
The costs of all these insurances can quickly add up, however with pay.com.au you can pay for all types of business insurance using a points-earning rewards credit card.
Even if your insurance provider or broker does not accept credit card payments or only accepts VISA and Mastercard, we can help you pay your insurance bills with any credit or charge card of your choice.
With low fees and a simple and easy-to-use interface, pay.com.au can help you do business better.
