πŸš€ Edit VAT and labels of your beneficiaries while sending a transfer

No more retroactive, manual work on each transfer made. In the case of a new beneficiary, or one that's not configured yet, you can populate the VAT and labels on your own on the transfer creation page. If your beneficiary already has a VAT rate and labels registered, the fields are pre-filled.

As a reminder, you can program the VAT rate and labels for each of your beneficiaries (aka suppliers). Once they are set up, you will find these pre-filled characteristics in the transfer creation window when you make the transfer.

πŸ€“ How does it work?

If not pre-filled at the bottom of the transfer page, simply fill in the supplier info in the dedicated fields.

To auto-fill next time, add your suppliers' information by going to Bookkeeping, then click on Suppliers. This is where you can add labels and associated VAT rate per supplier.

⚑ With Flash cards, take care of your teams' one-off expenses!

For any business trip, client lunch or equipment purchase, create a dedicated, temporary Flash card. You give autonomy while keeping budgets under control.

Headway-Flashcard-EN (1).gif

Create a Flash card each time a team member needs to make a one-off expense. Flash cards are custom, temporary virtual cards.

😎 How does it work?

  1. Any time an employee has a purchase to make or a business trip to organize, they can explain the use case including the amount and period of use required.
  2. From the Cards section, you create a new, unique card by choosing Flash card. Set the payment limit and the final day of use. The Flash card is immediately available in the employee's Qonto account, under their Cards section.
  3. Your employee can pay online or offline (with Apple Pay or Google Pay). No need to manage it after the expense(s), the Flash card automatically expires at the date set.

πŸ‘‰ To know more, discover our FAQ about Flash cards.

Flash cards are available with the Advanced, Business and Enterprise plans.





🏷 Better organise your transactions with up to 10 label categories

Your cash flow has never been more organized, allowing you to prepare your bookkeeping with ease. You can now create and customise up to 10 categories of labels, allowing you to accurately categorise your transactions and suppliers.

Labels gif EN.gif

For example, you could categorise your transactions by team. For marketing, a "Marketing" label category could include labels such as "Events", "Online Advertising", or "Website".

Adding labels to your transactions and suppliers will help you save valuable time in your bookkeeping, expense management and business analysis.

In the blink of an eye, you can identify the right transactions and suppliers you are looking for.

πŸ€“ How does it work?

To create, edit or delete your current label lists, go to your Qonto desktop app, and click on Bookkeeping, then Custom labels. For new labels, we've built adding categories into your existing process.
