statement options
Statement Options
  • Individually Billed / Individually Settled (IB/IS)Cardholder statements describing transaction details are sent to individual home or office address (also available via secure website). Employee is responsible for settling direct with American Express.
  • BENEFITS:Employee is responsible for on-time payment for expenses; helps to manage big amount of cards
  • Individually Billed / Centrally Settled (IB/CS)Cardholder statements describing transaction details are sent to individual home or office address. At the same time, a consolidated report (1605) summarising the charges is sent to the central contact person within the company (see sample) BENEFITS: This is ideal if you want your employees to be accountable for their business expense, but not for payment. Less option to be blocked due to individual non-compliance or late payment.
  • 3. Centrally Billed / Centrally Settled (CB/CS) A single statement including expense summary and transaction details is sent to one central contact person within the company to reconcile and authorise payment.
  • BENEFITS:This is ideal for small numbers of cards, which can easily be controlled by a central contact, or for employees travelling constantly and unable to action their expenses in a timely manner

Company can choose to have some employees on IB/IS, IB/CS, and some on CB/CS.

business travel account lodge card
Business Travel Account / Lodge Card

A departmental/lodge account that provides companies with the capability to centrally charge air spend, enabling better control of expenditure. Note: to comply with local conditions plastic must be issued in the name of the person who will be responsible for settlement of the BTA.

    • Useful for contractors / employees who are not eligible for an individual Card.
    • Ideal for volume of air transactions.
    • Electronic billing file to Travel Agent is required for large volume transactions

Please note: this is not a true BTA/EBTA - for example, there will not be the option of choosing different statement options with a choice of reference fields.

Product Features:

  • Application process – Corporate Account has a BTA tick box (separate form in progress)
  • Full Company Liability
  • Centrally Billed, Centrally Settled only
  • No pre-set spending limit
bta lodge card
BTA / Lodge Card


With a single departmental/lodge card the monthly statement captures merchant dataand charge value, hence the level of transaction detail is determined by the merchant data submitted to Amex – International carriers provide rich data, however, domestic & low cost carriers do not.

Please note: if low cost airlines are used, or travel agent acts as the merchant, reconciliation of the central statement may be difficult, because important data such as traveller name may be missing. One solution is to match travel invoices against the ticket number.

Consistent Minimum Statement Data*:

  • Merchant Name i.e. Airline, Travel Agent
  • Charge Value
  • Ticket Number*
  • Date of charge
  • Traveller Name & routing – depends on airline submission to Amex
  • * (depends on merchant reporting)
