Corporate charge cards

Business use only

You may provide a business charge card to an employee. If your employee uses the card for business purposes only, this is not a Benefit in Kind (BIK).

Business and private use

Your employee may use the card for private purchases and not repay you for the cost of those purchases. If this happens, this is a BIK. They must pay Pay As You Earn (PAYE) , Pay Related Social Insurance (PRSI) and Universal Social Charge (USC) on the total value of the private purchase.
