What if I want to leave Soldo?
We’re sure you’ll be happy with our service, joining thousands of satisfied businesses. But if you ever want to leave, you can close your Soldo account at any time and all the funds available on your account will be transferred back to the account from which they were initially deposited.
What size company is Soldo suitable for?
Soldo isn’t just for small business, it’s for all business. Soldo scales from one card to any number, matching the structure of your organisation with wallets for departments or individuals, which fund cards for teams, employees or contractors.
Though our software is intuitive and easy to use, powerful reporting is made possible by smart filters and granular transaction data. So, whether your business has two employees or 20,000, Soldo can help you gain visibility and control over spending, while simplifying expenses and helping you gain the advantages of financial planning in your business.
Does Soldo integrate with my accounting system?
Yes, Soldo integrates with all major accounting systems. Soldo has the world’s most complete API connection to Xero, sending transactions daily via an automatic bank feed. 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.
How does Soldo work?
Soldo is a multi-user expense account that helps you control business spending and, thanks to the integration with your accounting software, makes it easy and quick to manage and reconcile all company and petty cash expenses. Soldo is not a business account and we’re not trying to replace yours. We’re here to complement the traditional business account offering with more advanced and innovative financial services.
You can give Soldo cards to some or every employee, to entire teams or even contractors, deciding who can access company money and the rules they need to follow to spend it. With intuitive tools like the mobile app and web console, you’ll be able to track spending real-time, instantly transfer funds to all card holders (for free), establish budgets and rules, and much more.

How much does Soldo cost?
It depends on the plan you choose: Soldo Uno has no monthly subscription fees but is limited to one card, Soldo Pro costs £6 per card per month, and Soldo Premium costs £10 per card per month. For all plans, there’s a £5 card issuance fee for each physical Soldo card you order (virtual cards cost £1 to issue, if you only need to make online purchases).
We don’t charge any fees for domestic transactions. The amount of money you allocate to a wallet is exactly the same as the maximum amount the cardholder can spend.
Depositing funds to your Soldo account from a domestic bank account and transferring funds from the admin console are free and instantaneous.
What’s the right plan for my business?
From sole traders to large corporates (and everything in between), we have a plan that’s perfect for you.
Uno is perfect for sole traders and businesses in the early stages of improving their expense management processes. If you want to see how smarter spending can help your business, Uno is a great place to start.
Pro features a complete expense and automatic bank feed integration with Xero and QuickBooks Online. This plan also includes the ability to manage up to 20 plastic and virtual cards, which is why we think it offers excellent value for small and growing teams.
Premium is the most complete plan, with all the features of Soldo Pro but also advanced reporting and permissions/roles. Soldo Premium also makes it easy to manage company-level expenses such as online advertising costs and software subscriptions (and many more) using non-nominative cards.
