How to open an N26 bank account?
If you meet the eligibility criteria, you can open an account with N26. Simply register via the website or by downloading the N26 mobile app to a compatible device. Opening an account only takes a few minutes and is done without paperwork—all you need is a smartphone and an official form of identification. Once you have verified your identity, your bank account will be ready to go.
Can I manage payments and receive incoming funds from public institutions with my N26 account?
N26 is not a collaborating entity of Seguridad Social or the Agencia Tributaria, an essential requirement to process public aid. Therefore, it’s not currently possible to process these types of transactions with your N26 account. Although you currently can’t either pay your taxes from your N26 account (self-employed quota, VAT, etc.), or receive benefits (pensions, unemployment benefit, Minimum Life Income, etc.) you can receive tax refunds into it—for example, tax returns.
We’re working to offer a solution in the near future, and make our customers’ day-to-day easier.
