Payments and expense management platform Payhawk has raised $20 million in a funding round led by the US-based fund QED Investors. Existing investor Earlybird Digital East, who led the $3.6 million seed round in March 2020, is also contributing fresh capital.

According to the company, the fundraise will enable Payhawk to further expand its product offering and team. The company will expand coverage of countries, currencies and payment products to include credit cards and support for USD, AUD and others. Payhawk will also accelerate its use of AI and ML, to introduce smart workflows, and reduce the need for manual approval. The company plans to triple its marketing and sales team in 2021, in order to increase presence in the UK, Germany and Spain.

Yusuf Ozdalga, QED Investors said, “We are delighted to invest in Payhawk. The company is growing at a phenomenal rate. The company’s product fundamentals are exceptionally strong, and industry trends are working in the company’s favour too. As budgets are more typically managed online by remote teams, there is unprecedented demand for cost-effective finance solutions. We look forward to working with Hristo and the team.”

Recently, Payhawk announced the launch of one-click bill payments and reimbursements powered by a partnership with Railsbank. The FinTech also joins the Xero App Marketplace with a live bank feed to fully automate reconciliation of all company payments.

Payhawk CEO and founder Hristo Borisov said, “We have huge ambitions for the year ahead. Over the next year, we are keen to provide great support to finance teams across 30+ countries to manage company cards, invoices and payments in a unified and efficient way. We plan to significantly expand our integrations to existing ERP systems, and also easily connect on top of every business bank account across Europe. To do this, we need to invest in building the right setup and team to scale further, and the new funding round will enable us to do this”
