What currencies does Brex support?

This article refers to a feature that might not be available in your current Brex plan. If you'd like to learn more about this feature and how to unlock additional capabilities in Brex's upgraded plans, please have your account or card admin reach out to Brex Support by clicking on Support in your dashboard.

Brex card

Brex operates in USD, but that doesn’t prevent you from using your Brex card when making foreign transactions.

When you transact in a different currency from your billing currency, the transaction will be billed at the exchange rate selected by Brex. We adjust our exchange rates daily, including based on the wholesale rate available to us through Mastercard. This allows you to spend in over 200 different countries worldwide. Please see our Brex card terms for more details.

Brex business account

ACH transfers, domestic wire transfers, sent checks, and check deposits can only be completed in USD.

Inbound and outbound international wires can be completed in USD or, in certain countries, can be converted to or from the local currency. You can find the list of supported countries and their corresponding currencies here. If you choose to send an international wire transfer in a currency other than USD, the transaction will be performed with the foreign exchange rate chosen by Brex. Please see the Brex business account customer agreement for more details.

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 Spend limits details page.

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

Spend limits

You can create spend limits in USD.

Brex Plus To create a spend limit in non-USD, it they can only have one currency. In order to set a spend limit as non-USD, you’ll need to create an expense policy in a given currency in order to provision spend limits in that currency. For instructions, read the customize spend limit templates section of this help article.

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