Expenses suck. This is our core belief.

The idea for Expend was sparked by the (near-universal) expense admin frustrations experienced by our founders, Johnny and Rudolph. We’re sure you’ll recognise them: the stress of holding on to receipts, the headache of creating reports, questions about your spending, the long wait for reimbursement.

Although there were options out there that tried to make the process easier, these still involved clunky software, time-consuming processes or inaccurate (and expensive) scanning services.

Which begged the questions: surely there is a better way? Why are expense reports still even a thing?

So they put their heads together and started work on Expend. A real-time, automatic expense management technology that does away with the fundamental issues of an old-fashioned process.

That was in 2014, and we’re still going strong! Only now, we’ve built the ultimate expenses management platform – one our customers really love! Now we’re helping 1000’s of people, and businesses, manage their expenses easily, accurately and quickly, every day.

These days, you can find us at our offices in Moorgate, London.  We’re usually delved into lines of code, sipping coffee or turning the ping pong table into a battle zone… (it gets competitive!).

 

Our Awards

You don’t get praise for doing things wrong. Our customers love us, and we love them, but we also quite like it when the industry and press give us praise.

In September 2018 we were proud to be shortlisted for three 2018 Payments Awards. Payments Startup of the Year, B2B Payments Innovation of the Year and last but not least: Best Prepaid Card Solution.
