UBS Visa Corporate Card
FAQ

Annual fees

Question: I have just received your invoice and noted that the annual fees have been incorrectly debited twice.

Answer: The first debit is for the annual card fee. The second is for the annual main account maintenance fee. However, for each annual turnover of CHF 12 000, we credit you with CHF 100. Ideally, if enough is spent on the cards, you save the entire annual card fees. This bonus system costs you nothing and you do not have to register for it. The main account maintenance fee of CHF 100 is excluded from the spending bonus system and has to be paid in all cases.

Advantages of EUR and USD

Question: What are the advantages of having a credit card in EUR or USD?

Answer: Many companies carry out a majority of their transactions abroad and thus have bank accounts in the respective currencies. To avoid losses due to currency conversions, we can provide the invoice in the relevant currency. Any Visa Card can, of course, be used in all countries and for all currencies.

Limits

Question: What are the spending limits on UBS Visa Corporate Cards?

Answer: The minimum limit is CHF 2 000 / EUR 3 000 / USD 4 000 for Classic Cards or CHF 10 000 / EUR 6 000 / USD 8 000 for Gold Cards. The maximum overall limit for all cards is equal to half the company's share capital.

Payment when the limit has been reached

Question: I have reached my card limit and have therefore paid a sum of money into my card account. Unfortunately, I am still unable to use the card. Why is this?

Answer:
Amounts paid into your Corporate Card account are transferred to your company's main account. We can of course credit the amount in question to your card immediately.

Main account opening

Question: Why do I need to submit the form for opening a UBS Visa Corporate main account when my company already has an account with UBS?

Answer: The UBS Visa Corporate main account is separate from any other bank account. The data on the form mentioned are essential for opening a Corporate Card account. The form only has to be completed once, together with your initial card application.

Credit transfer

Question: The last invoice has one amount debited three times and credited only once, under the heading "Credit transfer to main account". What is the explanation for this?

Answer: This is purely an internal entry for crediting the amount to the main account – a corresponding credit booking appears on the main account.

PIN Code

Question: I would like to withdraw cash, but do not have a PIN code. Please provide me with one.

Answer: The company defines which employees are authorized to withdraw cash when ordering its cards and requests PIN codes for them. In order to authorize you to withdraw cash, we need written confirmation from your company.

Sole proprietorship/association/foundation

Question: Can a sole proprietorship, an association, a foundation or similar institutions benefit from a UBS Visa Corporate Card?

Answer: Yes. We can generally provide Corporate Cards for any legally recognized company. Applications are assessed according to the usual criteria.

Question: Who is authorized to request changes in addresses, increases in limits and other modifications to UBS Visa Corporate Cards?

Answer: Every modification must be communicated to UBS Card Center Ltd by fax or post bearing a legally valid signature in accordance with the Commercial Register.
