Get 24/7 expert legal advice through your Tide account

Our Plus, Pro and Cashback plan members don’t have to spend hours scouring the internet or pay out of pocket for answers to their legal questions. In fact, these plans come with a 24/7 legal helpline, run by Irwin Mitchell LLP.

Doing the work you love is what motivates you to own your own business. We want to help you stay compliant in the simplest way possible, so you can focus on the work that truly brings you joy.

That’s why we partner with Irwin Mitchell LLP to provide our Plus, Pro and Cashback plan members with impartial, confidential and independent advice.

Please note that the legal advice is provided by Irwin Mitchell LLP, a law firm we partner with, and not by Tide.

You can get advice on any aspect of UK law. This includes issues relating to your business, as well as domestic or personal legal matters. So, both you and your business are covered.

Some of the topics that Irwin Mitchell covers includes:

  • Business and commercial law – contracts, leases and general company law
  • Consumer law – dissatisfaction with services or products, and breaches of contract
  • Finance and tax law – the legal framework for tax
  • Property law – landlord and tenant queries, and support on various property law issues
  • Employment law
  • Family law
  • Personal injury law
  • Wills and disputes over estates
  • Insurance

You can also get help with extended services, such as filing a trademark or taking legal or tax action, for an additional cost. You’ll need to pass Irwin Mitchell LLP’s professional conflict checks for this.

The legal helpline generally doesn’t review documents, or help start legal proceedings and similar actions.

You can call the legal helpline 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, straight from your Tide app.
