Now in their seventh year, the Mozo Experts Choice Awards provide a platform to highlight products in the marketplace we believe offer great value to Australians.
“Business credit cards can be a handy tool in managing your company’s finances and cash flow,” said Peter Marshall, Mozo Experts Choice Awards judge.
“For the 2020 awards, we analysed 45 business credit card products issued by Australian financial institutions to find the best cards across three key categories for Australian small businesses depending on their goals.”
For details on how we crunched the numbers and determined our winners see our 2020 Mozo Experts Choice Awards Credit Card methodology report.
2020 marks the fifth year in a row that American Express has taken out the coveted Credit Card Provider of the Year award. This year AMEX won eight awards across both small business and personal credit cards, in categories ranging from low rate to frequent flyer rewards cards, and everything in between.
Six different Amex cards were recognised in the winners list including: Business Explorer Credit Card, Low Rate Credit Card, Essential Credit Card, Qantas Discovery Card, Qantas Ultimate Card, and the Explorer Card.
Business credit cards can help to manage company expenses and balance cash flow, but keeping costs low is an important thing to consider when choosing a card. The below cards offer both the lowest purchase rates and overall costs around, even when ongoing fees are taken into account.

Rewards can be beneficial when getting a rewards card for your business. We assessed the real dollar return from rewards schemes when making purchases for your business. Our experts looked at the redemption value of cashback and other reward options commonly redeemed, to determine the winners below.

See our methodology report for more detailed information on how we performed product comparisons and determined the final winners for the credit card awards.
We aim to include most credit card providers in the market in the Mozo Experts Choice Awards. However, not every credit card product on the market will be included in our review. Any credit card product we review must be available in the market at the time of our analysis. The Premium categories assessed all ‘platinum’, 'diamond' and 'black' credit cards, while the Standard categories considered all other credit cards. Charge cards were not assessed.
There is a reason why there are so many different categories of Mozo Experts Choice Awards in Business Credit Cards. When you’re looking for a credit card you’ll want to think carefully about your ability to repay any balance, the card benefits that you’ll use most or get the best value from.
For instance, low rate cards are generally better value if you carry a balance on your card from time to time. If you’re able to pay off your balance in full each month, a no annual fee or rewards credit card could be best for you.
