A cash advance allows employees to borrow money from their company prior to incurring any expenses. Cash advance provides a very useful mechanism in ensuring the employee is not out of pocket. It is pretty much a norm in countries where cash is more readily accepted.

It is a very popular feature, especially where cost control is critical. Currently cash advance is used by more than 4000 customers.

Cash Advance feature has seen a growth in the past couple of years where Top 5 countries using cash Advances are the US, Mexico, India, UK, Italy.
