What is a business expense card?

A business expense card is a way of enabling employees to cover the costs they incur while doing their jobs. How they work is simple: you give prepaid cards to as many members of your team as you like, and each comes with a dedicated account that you load with money.

Staff can then use the preloaded company expense cards as they would a normal credit or debit card: buying fuel, meals, online purchases and more.

With Soldo, you get extra controls that enable you to dictate how each account is used – and a web console for tracking transactions as they happen.

Corporate expense cards vs traditional company cards

Company credit and debit cards are popular, but they have drawbacks that business expense cards don’t.

With a debit card, the balance on the card and the balance in your primary account are one and the same. This essentially means the holder has unlimited access to those funds – unless they run out.

So you’ll need to make sure that you trust each cardholder to spend responsibly. Even then, the card will likely be shared among many employees, which makes it difficult to keep track of who’s spent what.

A business credit card, on the other hand, is linked to your line of credit. Its only spending limits are annual or monthly, making it susceptible to misuse. You’ll only be able to see statements at the end of the month, too, so you may not notice problems until it’s too late.

Prepaid expense card solutions have a few key differences. Their balances are separate from the company account itself, which means the cardholder can only ever spend as much as you put on their card. Because this isn’t linked to your line of credit, staff can’t impact your credit score.

How are expense cards different from company credit cards?

The biggest difference between expense cards and company credit cards is that there’s no credit involved. Instead, you preload each expense account with a set amount of funds. With Soldo’s expense cards, you get budgeting controls and oversight that aren’t available with credit cards.
