How does having multiple Brex business accounts work?

If you’re approved for a Brex business account, account admins can create up to 240 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. Account admins will also be able to transfer funds instantly between accounts.

Daily payments on multiple Brex business accounts will be taken from the primary Brex business account balance. The credit limit for these Brex business 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 business account — not the aggregate balance across multiple accounts. Payments will be automatically pulled daily from your primary Brex business account balance.

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