Question

How do you track your business expenses?

Does your team send all receipts to an app like Expensify, or do you track expenses manually perhaps in a spreadsheet? Have company-focused credit cards like Brex and Stripe Corporate Card made it easier to track expenses?

And if your self-employed or doing freelance work, how do you track your expenses outside of a company?

QuickBooks Online for freelance using user-defined rules which help to automate categorizing subscription expenses. It doesn't suggest categories for you, unfortunately.
For personal expenses I'm using the Spendee app but it's slow and so manual that's it's a burden. I may try Mint again.

All transactions that I receive from bank (SMS, app notifications, email, etc) I send to Airtable by using Integromat/Zapier.

Ohhh that's clever. So you essentially use your bank notifications as the single source of truth, instead of receipts?

I use QuickBooks Online Accountant to complete my company's bookkeeping and manage my personal finances. All my banking and credit card transactions are pulled daily and I can perform budgeting and basic analytics from the reports and dashboards they provide. The best part -- it's free!

Curious how many people are juggling subscription expenses they have to bill through to clients?

Same—that, or juggling expenses between multiple ventures that you need to track separately.
