Expenses are about to get a whole lot easier. The next time you buy a team lunch, take a client out for coffee or buy equipment, you can put away your personal card and avoid waiting to get reimbursed.



Traditionally, expenses are a fraught experience for employers and employees alike.

According to the Expenses Economy Report (2018), almost a third of respondents in the UK have asked friends or family for cash while waiting for company expenses to be reimbursed. Furthermore, nearly a third (32%) used their own credit card or personal overdraft while waiting.

To make matters worse, more than a fifth have had to wait longer than a month. Each year, an estimated £3.5 billion worth of expenses go unreimbursed thanks to current business expense policies.

Some of the most common reasons for going unreimbursed? Losing the receipt, entering the wrong description by mistake, missing the deadline, or a mistake on the part of the accountant.

Thankfully, Receipt Bank offers a solution.



The Receipt Bank MasterCard has been designed with Capital On Tap to deliver a prepaid or credit card with up to £50k* instant credit approval.

This means you can:

  • Give all your employees a business card to use instead of their personal card and avoid having to make them wait for reimbursement

  • Easily track and monitor individual card and employee spending

  • Apply for unlimited additional cards, managed through 1 online admin sign-on

  • Enjoy 0.5% cash-back** on all spending

  • Use anywhere MasterCard is accepted, with zero foreign exchange charges



What’s more, Receipt Bank and Xero users can enjoy a seamless integration and access your card spend data quickly and accurately.

Within 12 hours of using the card, you’ll see the data in Receipt Bank. When used in combination with other Receipt Bank features such as Invoice Fetch and Bank Match, you can further simplify the reimbursement process and welcome in the future of employee expenses.
