How can I request a higher credit limit?

We understand that there may be months you need to spend more than your credit limit allows. There are a number of ways that you can request a higher credit limit. Please reference the relevant section below.

Credit limits are dynamic by design and are adjusted on a regular basis depending on your company's spending patterns, cash balance, and sales (if you're an ecommerce company).

Option 1: Update bank data

If you currently have an existing bank connection with Brex, it may need to be reconnected. This will ensure that we have the most up-to-date picture of your finances and can adjust your credit limit appropriately. If you're having issues reconnecting, please read I'm having issues connecting my bank account to Brex.

If you don’t currently have a bank connection with Brex, you can send us your most recent bank statements instead. Please reach out to our support team so that we can provide you with a secure link to do so.
