Sohar International Corporate Credit Card is a first-of-its-kind facility to be introduced in Oman and across the GCC. It is a complete finance solution for businesses, supported by Visa’s unparalleled IntelliLink Spend Management System.
Unlike a personal credit card
Unlike a personal credit card which is typically used for personal expenses only, a Corporate Credit Card serves as an extension of a corporate finance facility provided to a company by its Bank. Depending upon the approved credit card limit allocated to it, the company may apply for credit cards to be issued to its designated employees. Usage however is strictly limited to corporate related expenses only.
Corporate Credit Card outperforms
Sohar International Corporate Credit Card outperforms all other corporate credit cards in that it is a universal payment solution to help businesses make and manage a range of corporate expenditure. A flexible, efficient and innovative reporting system ensures that customers receive comprehensive card statements. Moreover, a sophisticated Spend Management web-based solution allows cardholders to access all the necessary information and tools to make better and more efficient business related decisions.

A Corporate Credit Card is an extremely convenient and complete solution for businesses. It provides users with absolute control on their corporate spend and helps minimize the paperwork associated with everyday operational expenses. Additionally, it helps maximize the organization's operational efficiency and reduces costs.
The Bank allocates an overall credit limit at the corporate level, and sub-limits for designated employee credit cards. The Bank provides two sets of statements at the end of each month – one showing spend transactions by all cards issued to the company, and the other showing spend transactions by individual cardholders. Besides, other issuers do not offer online monitoring of credit limits and transactions.
The card's advanced Spend Management web-based solution allows cardholders to access all the necessary information and tools to make better and more efficient business related decisions.
The corporate liability waiver program protects customers against losses that might be incurred through card misuse by employees.
The Corporate Credit Card comes with comprehensive insurance cover, which includes free travel accident insurance and emergency medical assistance of up to US$2 million.
The corporate credit card can be customized to meet the user's specific needs. Thus, the credit card can be programmed for cash withdrawals, online transactions, over the counter purchases, and so on, depending upon the customer's requirements.
The process starts with a detailed product presentation to the corporate customer's designated Finance and Accounting personnel. Thereafter, in consultation with the applicant, the overall corporate credit limit is set. This limit will be part of the overall working capital facility made available by Sohar International to the customer. Once the paperwork is in place, Sohar International begins the process of setting up and customizing an account in the customer's name. A brief training session for the corporate user then follows before the credit card is fully activated.
Any company applying for corporate credit card must open an account in its name with Sohar International.
This chip-based card comes with powerful safety features that offer complete protection against potential misuse. Users exercise full control over their transactions (whether related to over-the-counter purchases, cash withdrawals, and online transactions).
