Reimbursements Brex Plus

Global employees can see both reimbursements and card expenses in the original currency that the purchase was made in by going to Your wallet in their dashboard, or by clicking the expense in the Expenses page or in the Budgets details page.

Managers and controllers can view expenses by going to Inbox and either Expenses or Reimbursements > All expenses. They will see transactions in both USD and the original currency.

Budgets

You can create budgets in USD.

Brex Plus To create a budget in non-USD, it they can only have one currency. In order to set a budget as non-USD, you’ll need to create an expense policy in a given currency in order to provision budgets in that currency. For instructions, read the Customize budget templates section of What are budget templates?.

A budget in a given currency can support expenses in other currencies, as well. For example, a EUR budget can still support transactions in USD. Expenses in that budget will show both the Eeuro amount and the USD amount. For these transactions, the policy will be evaluated based on the currency exchange rate at the time of transaction. Budget limits do not fluctuate with exchange rates—they are set and fixed in their local currency.
