We are happy to announce that bill-to-parent type subaccounts now support (Negative) Account Limits as well as Account Balances!

Where are these subaccount spending limit settings?
You can configure the negative account limit or set up the account balance workflow when creating the bill-to-parent subaccount. You can also edit an existing bill-to-parent subaccount and configure the negative account limit or set up the account balance workflow.
Managing account balance funds or negative account limit
For the account balance workflow, you can add funds to the account balance on the subaccount details page. Click Add account balance. In the Add balance to subaccount window, add funds to the bill-to-parent subaccount. In the bill-to-parent subaccount, this displays an account balance to track spending. These are not real funds.
For the negative account limit, you can adjust the limit from the Edit subaccount details page. Go to the subaccount details page and click Edit.
For more information, see Configure bill-to-parent subaccount spending limits.
