Spending smarter is easier than ever.

Create spend limits for things like stipends, travel, and procurement. Embedded policies are auto-enforced, giving employees confidence in every transaction.

Enable and allocate spend.

Issue spend limits and assign them to individuals or teams for spending via card, ACH, check, wire, or reimbursement. And for easier tracking, you can assign each spend limit to an associated budget.

Create unique policies for each spend limit, and Brex will auto-enforce them across Brex card, bill pay, travel platform, and reimbursements — giving you more control over every transaction.

Simplify approvals with AI.

Don’t waste time reviewing every transaction, every month. Brex AI automatically approves expenses that are in-policy, and flags those that need a closer look.
