How does having multiple Brex Cash accounts work?

If you’re approved for a Brex Cash account, account admins can create up to eight individual accounts under one EIN. The individual accounts will have unique account numbers but the same permissions as your primary account. They can be used to deposit funds for various reasons including, for example, different categories of spending. Admins will also be able to transfer funds instantly between accounts.

Daily payments on multiple Cash accounts will be taken from the primary Cash account balance. The credit limit for these Cash accounts will be based on the primary account’s balance.


For Brex cards with daily payments, limits are based only on the balance in your primary Brex Cash account — not the aggregate balance across multiple accounts. Payments will be automatically pulled daily from your primary Brex Cash account balance.

For Brex cards with monthly payments, limits are based on the sum total of all Brex Cash account balances, as well as balances from connected external bank accounts.
