Tide features

  • Sign-up for a business current account can be completed in as little as 10 minutes on a mobile device or via the web. Clients can also choose to register their company at the same time (for free) using our Company Registration tool. This saves businesses valuable time in getting their company and/or account set up to operate efficiently, rather than having to visit any branches.
  • No credit check is required to open an account, therefore there is no risk in clients trying out Tide alongside an existing account. This helps a lot in speeding up Sole Trader which remains a high % of new applications.
  • Free sign-up, with no annual or monthly fees. This saves clients money that can be invested into their business instead.
  • 1 year worth of free transfers
  • Free Mastercard usage (at home and overseas) and no bank transfer fees for one year. These cost savings will again allow the client to re-invest into their business and not worry about extra charges when paying for any business expenses, as an example.
  • Access to all Tide Platform product features to manage their business admin such as the Company Registration tool, Receipt Importer, VAT Manager (which links to HMRC), Expense ManagementExpense Team Cards, Accountancy Software Integrations, Invoicing Tool, Invoice Protection and Virtual Office Address. These features will save clients valuable time completing and managing their business admin.
  • Tide’s business current accounts can be managed on both a mobile device and via the web, allowing easy access to account features to save time on admin.
