New! Simplify Employee Reimbursements with Float

Simplify your team spending by keeping it all in one place (including employee reimbursements).

September 20, 2023


We’re excited to introduce Reimbursements – the simplest way for teams to manage out-of-pocket expenses, directly in Float.

Thousands of teams know that using a Float Card for company spending saves countless hours with automated approvals and smart reconciliations. Yet out-of-pocket expenses still happen from time to time. Our goal at Float is to introduce optimal ways to manage all team spending (including the odd expense that happens when you don’t have your Float Card on hand). 

Now, the same custom controls and automations that companies get when their team spends with Float Cards are available to streamline employee reimbursement requests as well! 

How it Works

So long Excel spreadsheets, email chains, and expensive software. Reimbursing out-of-pocket expenses is just 3 simple (and automated) steps in Float. 

  1. The Spender Submits a Reimbursement Request. Finance teams can streamline this process by setting up custom Submission Policies to ensure all required information is submitted for smooth month-ends. 
  2. The Manager Approves the Request. Custom Approval Policies notify the right Manager (or Managers) to approve the request in Float without delays. 
  3. Admins Export the Approved Request for Payout. Once approved, Admins can sync reimbursement submissions to their accounting software and pay employees quickly though their payroll or accounting software.

Why it Works for Your Team

Using Reimbursements in Float’s integrated spend management solution means time and cost savings for your company that you can put back into growing your business. With Float, you’ll get to:

🧾 Simplify Team Repayments

Whether they paid with their Float Card or needed to make an out-of-pocket payment, team members now request to spend and submit expenses all in one place. No need to onboard and manage employees on multiple platforms, and finance teams get a real-time, consolidated view of company spending.

💸 Save on Software 

Every dollar counts when growing your business. Expense management software can be expensive when charging per seat (think Expensify or Concur). This costs companies thousands of dollars a month. Reimbursements is available to all of Float’s Professional customers at no additional cost per user.

🙅‍♀️ Eliminate Administrative Work

Finance teams can create custom Submission and Approval Policies to eliminate manual work. Employees simply upload their receipts and expense information, and their request automatically goes to their manager for approval so the finance team can payout (and close) faster. No more f*$%-ing expense reports.

💳 Spend on Cards Worry-free

Your team members feel happiest when they’re empowered to do their best work. This often includes needing to spend with insight and flexibility. Assigning Float Cards to employees with frequent or large expenses gives team members autonomy, while finance teams still keep control and peace of mind. In addition to Reimbursements, enjoy unlimited virtual Float Cards to spend in CAD or USD as part of Float’s free Essential plan (and free physical cards with the Professional plan).
