Payhawk Bills: A single process for all expenses

Our research shows that it takes up to 15 minutes and 3 people on average to execute a single bank wire. The amount of the invoice is irrelevant, it could be for 5 or 50,000 EUR. The organizational effort remains the same. With this feature, we help businesses reduce this process to just 30 seconds. Here is how.

Say Hi to Payhawk Bills, a new process meant to automate bank payments

In general, transfers involve plenty of manual work and produce a lot of bottlenecks, primarily coming from:


  1. An approval process before paying bills and accepting new suppliers
  2. Manually transcribing IBANs or sort codes and payment details
  3. Dealing with tokens and limited access in banking portals
  4. Reconciliation of financial transactions in the company books

Payhawk Bills gives companies the option to pay outstanding invoices directly from the product. That way the organisation has a holistic view of its payments as it combines card, cash, and bank payments in a single process.



Until now, if an employee had to pay an invoice via a bank transfer, a separate process was needed. Based on our previous findings, on average 3 other people would have to be involved, regardless of the fact that expense approval and allocation of funds have already happened.


With Payhawk, all stakeholders follow the standard procedure as with every other expense. The company reduces complexity and all process stakeholders save time and resources.


Payhawk Bills is now available for all of our Premium Spend and Scale customers with a standard SEPA or Faster Payments transfer fee of €1 or £1 depending on the transfer currency.

It’s time to leave your online banking and start paying your bills the smart way.
