What type of bank accounts can I use for underwriting?

Brex uses connected bank accounts to determine your company’s credit limit.

Generally, no matter the account type, we can only accept bank accounts that are:
  • Business accounts
  • Domestic bank accounts with funds denominated in USD.

Types of acceptable bank accounts

  • Bank savings or checking
  • Investment and brokerage accounts
    • Cash
    • Cash equivalents (cash, money markets, etc)
    • Short-term debt securities (bonds, Treasury Bills, other types of fixed income)

Some assets we do not use to underwrite

  • Equities (stocks)
  • Mutual funds
  • Long-term debt securities
  • Options
  • Cryptocurrency


Other accounts may be considered if they’re liquid and short-term–typically with maturities of less than 12 months. These include, but are not limited to:
  • Sweep or autosweep accounts
    • If a sweep account statement shows a $0 balance, Brex will require statements or a connection with both the sweep account and the originating account.
  • Money market accounts
    • Money market mutual funds will only be accepted if invested entirely in short-term assets.
  • Time deposits
