John Sharman, CEO, Tuxedo Money Solutions, said there was an opportunity for other companies to partner with Tuxedo to offer a cobranded or white labelled card.These offer companies more control over employees’ spending when
has created partnerships for this purpose with a number of
businesses including MSM Business Solutions which uses them
for expenses for staff who travel regularly, while Tesco has a payroll
card through Tuxedo that they use to pay staff in non-UK denominations
if they are overseas.
“The card offers an effective way to budget company expenses,” he said. “Employees can be given a pre-loaded travel card for business trips and meetings to ensure spending is capped, company finances are secure and it’s easy to top up.”
The Endsleigh Prepaid Travel Card, which can also be purchased by individuals, costs £9.95.
