In Germany, potential members can join a waiting list with the Tide app becoming available in the coming months. Initially, members can access Tide’s Business Account and card products, while it rolls out its full platform capabilities, which solutions including invoicing and cash flow forecasting.

Oliver Prill, CEO of Tide, says: “As in the UK, small businesses are the backbone of the German economy, Europe’s largest. Our success in the UK has been built on having a deep understanding of the pain points of small businesses, the self-employed and freelancers. Our goal is to help reduce the financial and administrative management burdens with our advanced business financial platform.

“Looking at what is on offer for SMEs in Germany, we believe there is a huge opportunity for Tide. Across all our markets, we continue to add to the services and products we offer to our members, as part of our mission to be the leading international financial platform for small businesses.”
