This article relates to the Equals Money platform. It does not apply to the Equals Spend platform.

Owners and admins can add people to the account. To add a new person to your Equals Money account, please sign in and go to the “People” page of your account. At the top of this page you’ll see a button that says “+Add People”

Once you click on this, you’ll be asked to add some information about the person you wish to add. We’ll need to know their name, email address and you’ll need to assign them an account role.

You can assign one of the following roles:

Primary owner

Your company account must always have an active Primary owner. Only one person within your company can hold this at any given time. The Primary owner has the same permissions as an Owner, but they cannot be deactivated. The role can be transferred to another active Owner, by the current Primary owner.


Owners have view and edit access to all functionality in the platform. Owners also have access to Account settings, where they can activate/deactivate certain features.


Admins have view and edit access to all functionality in the platform, with the exception of view only access to Account settings.


Payers have the ability to add beneficiaries and make payments from your account. They do not have access to any settings or permissions.


Viewers have view access to all functionality in the platform, except Account settings. Viewer’s do not have any edit access, nor can they make any transactions, within your company account.


Accountants have view and edit access for spending activity, including statements and transactions. They also have access to manage Annotations and Integrations in Account settings. People with the accountant role cannot have their own Individual card.


You can assign Users to Individual cards. Users cannot view or edit anything at account level, or make wire payments.

Once you have selected a role, you will be able to choose whether or not an invitation is sent out to them immediately. In most cases, you can simply invite your staff as soon as you add their details on the platform. We give the option to invite them later for situations where you may prefer to invite that at a more convenient time, for example, while you are meeting with them or onboarding a new member of your team. You will be able to invite someone later by selecting them on the People page and clicking “Send invite” on their profile.

The next screen will ask you to add a job title, employee number and work phone number, which is optional. This may help you, and other members of your team identify people on your account.  

The person you are adding will receive an invite email with the subject line “You've been invited to Equals Money”. This invite will include a link to a page allowing them to set up a password and then access your account.
