About us

image description

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 banking service designed especially for small businesses. 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 something that our members say is the best business banking service in the world.
