The following information on the Westminster College purchasing cards is intended to help you in your use of the card, and the Business Office in accounting for that usage.
Limits and Exclusions
The Westminster College purchasing cards are a MasterCard that may be used anywhere that MasterCard is accepted. However, there may be exclusions placed on cards that will prevent them from being used at certain types of vendors. You will be made aware if any such limitations have been placed on your card. Each card also has only an overall credit limit and there are no daily or transaction limits that apply.
When using the purchasing card, be sure to tell the cashier that is it a tax-exempt sale. Carry a copy of the tax exemption letter with you as most businesses will require it. Most purchases should be exempt from sales tax, however, other states may not accept our tax exemption.
