Set it and forget it.
Budgets make it easy to allocate spend limits for every need — and keep everyone compliant automatically.
1. Create a budget.
Set up a spending budget for a specific purpose such as travel, stipend, or procurement.
2. Add custom controls.
Customize spending rules and merchant and category blocks that will be auto-enforced.
3. Delegate spend limits.
Assign specific spend limits to an individual, department, or team to enable in-policy spend.
4. Empower employee spending.
Enable employees to spend from any assigned spending limits using one Brex card or via reimbursement.
All your spend in one place.
Enable in-policy spend for any purpose, for anyone in your company — by card or reimbursement.
Set up a budget to enable spending for frequent travelers, and allow infrequent travelers to request spend limits. Embed detailed rules for flights, hotels, even rideshare class — and we’ll enforce them.
Team and company offsites
Create a shared budget for offsites, allowing multiple employees to spend from the amount allocated for the event, while enforcing specific limits for categories like per diems and hotels.
Stipends and perks
Issue one-time and recurring stipends for L&D, wellness, and other perks — to be spent by Brex card or reimbursement so you only pay for what is used. Embed policies and blocks to ensure the stipend is spent as intended.
Procurements of any size
Sharing a corporate card isn’t ideal. Instead, allow multiple employees to make procurements from a shared budget (such as for marketing), with individual user expenses tracked via their unique card numbers.
The magic of budgets.
Here's how Brex budgets help you work smarter, not harder.
Enable any type of spend, on one card.
Cover your team's travel expenses, operational spend, and annual stipends all from a single place, all on one card.
Allow spend limits to be shared.
Let managers divvy up spend limits among their team members — the budget’s controls will still apply.
Enable employees to request spend.
Allow employees to easily request new spend limits for approval — with your policy auto-applied.
Customize your approval chain.
Designate approvers for each budget, such as managers for T&E and your controller for large procurements.
Auto-provision stipends and more.
Save time by issuing spend limits, such as for stipends, to new hires automatically based on role and location.
Display amounts in the user’s currency.
Show spend limits and policies in the employee’s local currency and the company's currency.
