N26 Spaces are sub-accounts that sit alongside your main account, giving you an easy way to manage your finances. As a premium customer, create up to 10 Spaces sub-accounts with IBANs in an instant, and effortlessly put money aside for your savings goals, upcoming expenses, or even an emergency fund. Of course, how you use your spaces is up to you—it’s not necessary to add an IBAN to each space if you don’t need one.

With unique IBANs for each Spaces sub-account, you can receive SEPA bank transfers and pay via direct debit—right from each space. Try using Rules to automatically set your bill money aside to a space, then pay via direct debit from your sub-account. With your monthly expenses taken care of, you can relax knowing that you won’t overspend in your main account.

If you want to save and spend as a group, simply create a Shared Space, and manage funds together with up to 10 other N26 customers. However, please note that an IBAN cannot be added to a Shared Space for now. Stay tuned for more updates to come! Find out more about Spaces and Shared Spaces here.
