Plus Account Upgrade FAQs

Why do you charge VAT?

We have to charge VAT (value added tax) on the fee for Tide Plus membership.

The fee is for ‘value added’ services associated with your Plus membership, so that’s why it’s subject to Value Added Tax (VAT).

The fee for Plus membership is different from our standard fees for transactions, which are exempt from VAT.

If you’re VAT registered, you can reclaim the VAT on your Plus membership fee at the end of your accounting period.

The VAT charged on the Plus fee is the standard rate. Read more about VAT rates at the Government website:
Gov.uk | VAT rates »

How much is Tide Plus?

Tide Plus is £9.99 + VAT per month. We charge you on the 4th of each month for that calendar month.

For your first month, you’ll be charged pro-rata, so if you sign up on the 16th we’ll only charge you for the 16th until the end of that month. Then on the 4th of the following month, you’ll be charged for the full month as usual.

Get your next month free! If you spend £10,000 on your Tide card and any Tide company expense cards in a calendar month, we’ll waive your Tide Plus fee for the following month.

How many free transfers do I get?

With Tide Plus, you get 20 free transfers a month. This includes all inbound and outbound Faster Payments, CHAPS, BACs and Direct Debits. Please note this does not include international payments if you have an International Currency Account.

How do I access priority support?

Same as always, send us a message in the app and you’ll automatically be bumped to the top of the queue.

To call us, you’ll see an option to phone us in your Support section of the app, Tide Plus phone support is available 9am – 6pm UK time. For your security, our phone support team will take a few minutes to verify your identity – just like high street banks.
