Commonwealth credit card

A credit card issued to a Commonwealth entity to enable the entity to obtain cash, goods or services on credit. Credit cards and credit vouchers issued to entities are different from personal credit cards or vouchers, as they do not provide the holder with a revolving line of credit. Money borrowed through the use of a credit card or credit voucher must be paid in full within a specific timeframe.

A Commonwealth credit card number is subject to the same requirements as a Commonwealth credit card (for example, in relation to security of storage).
