Brex Empower

What are global reimbursements?

Brex Empower allows admins and managers to reimburse employees in select international locations. To get started, international employees need to make sure they connect their personal bank account.

Employees will be reimbursed in the same currency that their bank account is set up in (generally local currency). For example, if an employee sets up their bank account in Italy, they’ll be reimbursed in Euros.

If an employee wants to request a reimbursement for a purchase made in a currency other than their bank's local currency they can check the box This purchase was made in a different currency during the submission process. We’ll use an internal foreign exchange rate to calculate the equivalent value in their local currency automatically.

Timing for reimbursements depends on several internal factors, including the local banking rails. In their dashboard, the employee can see the estimated payment arrival time in the details panel for a given reimbursement.
