High street banks don’t care about small businesses. They’re painful to deal with. We need a simpler, more efficient and helpful way to manage money.
So, we started Tide. A current account for business. One that actually respects the scarcity of business owners’ time and money,
so you can get on with more important things. It’s a problem we think that cutting edge technology is best placed to solve. Packed with useful but simple tools, we’ve built what our members say is the best replacement in the world for business banking.
