What do I need to apply for a business credit card?

Before you apply for one of our business credit cards, check out the supporting documents you may need to provide us.

Identification for new customers

If you’re new to Bankwest, we’ll need to confirm who are you are (it’s a security thing).

Applying at a branch

Pop down to your local Bankwest branch with an original or certified copy of one of the following:

  1. One form of primary ID with a photo (i.e. passport or driver’s licence) or
  2. Two forms of primary ID without a photo (e.g. birth certificate and government benefits card) or
  3. One form of primary ID without a photo (e.g. birth certificate or Citizenship papers) and one form of secondary ID (e.g. a utility bill).


For more detailed information, see a handy list of ID we'll accept.

If you’re not near a Bankwest branch, just print our Credit Card Identity Verification Form (PDF) and take it down to your local Australia Post Bank@Post outlet with your ID.

Applying online

You can skip a trip to a branch with our electronic ID check.

Business details

The documents you'll need to provide will differ depending on your business type. If we need anything else, we'll let you know during the application process.

Run a business? 

We may need your personal tax return from the last 18 months.

Work for an employer?

We might need your most recent payslip(s). If you're on probation, receive commission or are involved in any other special arrangements we might need a letter from your employer.

Rent out property?

We could need an up-to-date lease agreement for any properties.

Government organisations, joint ventures or foreign or other companies?

Give us a call on 13 7000 to see what we could do for you.

Additional cardholders

You can have up to three additional cardholders (or unlimited if you have a Corporate Mastercard) on your business credit card. If they are new to Bankwest, they'll need to complete a quick ID check. They can do this online, at a branch, or by calling a Business Banking Specialist on 13 7000
