How we categorise your expenses
Every time a new transaction is recorded in-app, we’ll assign a category to the expense automatically.
If it’s a merchant we’ve not seen before, then the category will be less accurate. But if it’s one we’ve seen previously, it will have been through our enrichment process to assign a more accurate category, plus clean it up a bit and add a nice logo.
You can (and we encourage you to!) update the categories if you what we’ve assigned isn’t accurate. Ultimately it’s your responsibility to make sure that your records are accurate, but we’ll go as far as we can to help you with this.
To do this, simply tap on the relevant transaction then tap the current category to open up a pop up of selections you can now choose from. You can also categorise your transactions in bulk.
Swipe to Recategorise (iOS only)
From your main transaction list, you can swipe from left to right to recategorise your transaction.
If you swipe all the way to the right, we'll open the category menu for you so you can select any category. Alternatively, you can partially swipe to see our 'suggested' category.
If you're recategorising from business, we'll always show personal so you can un-muddle your accounts quickly.
Making personal purchases
If you make a personal purchase on your card, you can simply assign this to the “Personal” to remove it from your tax workings.
To get help with knowing what you can and can’t claim as business expenses to reduce your tax bill, you can access the handy guidance whenever you open the categories list.
You can attach receipts to your transactions, either using your phone’s camera, photo library, or cloud storage apps that you’ve got on your phone. You can add notes to your transactions too.
