Introducing Monzo Business. It just works, so you can too

We want to make money work for everyone, and that includes businesses too ?

We’ve spent the past 12 months building an account that makes banking effortless for small businesses. We’ve been so inspired by what got you into business in the first place – loving something so much that you wanted to spend all of your time on it, or having the freedom to choose your own projects, your own hours and be your own boss.

We heard about the problems you face with business banking ⛔️

Something we heard over and over again is how much time you spend on banking and admin, rather than focussing on what matters most – running your business.

You told us that opening a business account is a painful process that can take weeks. That you’re charged for things you need to do most days, like UK bank transfers. That repetitive financial admin takes hours of your time and that it’s hard to keep track of what’s coming into, and going out of, your account.

So we’ve built something that makes business banking effortless ⚡️

We want our business accounts to change the lives of business owners and set a new industry standard for business banking. They’re designed to let you get on with running your business, knowing that banking’s taken care of.

Monzo Business Pro: your business’ finances taken care of, for £5 per month.

Monzo Business Lite: the best of Monzo but for your business, with no monthly fee.

Both our accounts are full UK current accounts, and we’re regulated by all the same rules as high street banks. Plus, your eligible depositsin Monzo are FSCS protected up to £85,000.

Here’s what you’ll get

No more worrying if you’ve forgotten to save for your tax bill, with Tax Pots (Pro only) ?

And no more shifting around between accounts to see where your money is. Choose what percentage of your income you want to set aside for tax. Then whenever you’re paid, we’ll put it in your Tax Pot automatically. You can add or take out money from your Tax Pot any time.

Automatically share your balance and transactions every day. No need to switch between tools, or manually upload statements. Keep on top of your accounts with everything in one place, and see where you’re at with a glance. So it’s extra clear, we’ll never share your data with anyone else unless you agree to it, or ask us to.

If you use other tools, or don’t use any, easily export a file of your transactions (CSV, PDF or QIF) whenever you need to.

Get notified the second you pay, or get paid, with instant notifications (Pro and Lite) ?

If you already have a business account with us, or you’re on the waitlist, we’re giving you 3 months free ?It’s our way of saying thanks for waiting, or being with us from the very beginning.

You can cancel your account, or move between Monzo Business Pro and Monzo Business Lite any time, with no charge. And there’s no minimum term on either account, so you’re not locked in.


Switch to Monzo, straight from the app ⚡️

We know lots of you will already have business accounts with other banks. So after you’ve signed up for a Monzo Business Account, you can switch from your old bank, hassle-free. With the Current Account Switch Service, we’ll move all your money and payments (like Direct Debits and standing orders) and close down your old account for you.

Our two business bank accounts are just the beginning…

Our vision now is the same as it was on day one – to build a hub for all your business finances. We want to let you see and control everything about your business, whether that’s directly or through a partner. How can I send international payments? How can I stay on top of my cash flow? And how can I make sure I’m setting aside money for tax? Over the coming months, we’ll start to answer those questions by giving you access to the features, services and funding that you need.
