What are startup business cards and how can they help expenses?

For expense management, some companies use one company card for centralised spending. Other businesses give them to senior staff members that they trust to spend responsibly. In recent years, the rise of prepaid business cards has enabled thousands of businesses to share the benefits of company cards with every employee.

Cash isn’t king when it comes to business spending. Using cash means either asking staff to pay for expenses themselves – then reimbursing them weeks later – or handing out advances. Both are inefficient approaches to expense management, they act as a drag on morale and productivity. That’s why more and more businesses are using prepaid company cards instead.

Can your startup business credit card keep up?

Shared corporate cards can lead to overspending and reduced accountability. It’s easy to hit transaction limits during critical spending periods. And the 30-day wait for statements (compounded by late expense reports) means cash flow is never truly up to date.

But there’s a smarter way. Soldo integrates prepaid Mastercard® corporate cards with intuitive admin tools in our expense management software for real-time visibility and control over spending, simplifying expense management.

Is Soldo a business bank account?

No. Soldo provides additional spend management features that work alongside your business bank account, instead of replacing it. You can use your Soldo cards to separate staff spending from your main company funds, as well as accessing powerful new features that aren’t available with a traditional business bank account.

How secure is Soldo? What guarantees do I have?

Soldo Financial Services Ltd is an electronic money institution, authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority under the Electronic Money Regulations 2011: this means we have to follow strict compliance processes.  We don’t lend or take risks with customer money, we access it solely to execute the customer’s transactions. Client funds are always protected, as they are completely independent of Soldo’s business accounts and assets. The funds are safeguarded under UK Electronic Money Regulations 2017 and cannot be claimed by Soldo creditors.

Does Soldo integrate with my accounting system?

Our seamless integrations with Xero, QuickBooks Online and NetSuite also make it easy to share enriched transaction data including receipts, categories, notes and much more – in just one click.

If you’re using another accounting platform – like Sage, FreeAgent or many others – Soldo makes it easy to export transaction data in a variety of formats, in two clicks. Transaction data can be exported in XLSX, CSV, QIF and OFX formats, making your data compatible with all major accounting software solutions.

What size company is Soldo suitable for?
