Decided to set up a business and need your bank account quickly? Or simply looking to switch ASAP? You can open a business current account with Tide in 5 minutes by simply downloading the Tide app on your phone. All you need to do is take a photo of your ID, take a selfie, and enter some basic information about yourself and your business. You will receive your sort code and account number straight away, so you don’t need to wait around to get started.

Both setting up and running a business can be daunting at times. Don’t worry though, Tide won’t charge you any alarming or unexpected bank fees, ever. It’s free to signup, free to use your card and there are no monthly, or annual fees. The only cost is 20p to send or receive money from a non-Tide account and £1 to withdraw cash from an ATM.

The app itself is packed with useful tools to save you time as well. If you’re worried about managing your spending, Tide have got it covered: the auto-categorisation tool allows you to see exactly where you’re spending (or over-spending). You can create and pay invoices straight from the app- no more waiting around to be paid. The world’s fastest business loan can be granted through the Tide app too, so you can start taking your business further, without any early repayment fees or impact on your credit score.

If you prefer to manage your accounts from your laptop or computer, no worries! Tide have an online desktop version of the Tide app, so you can log in and do your banking there too. (
