Each participant can transfer money between the shared space and their own N26 account, and keep track of all transaction activities and progress.

Make your space at home

Any N26 customer can be invited to participate in a shared space. However, only N26 premium account holders with either N26 Smart, You or Metal can be the owner of a new shared space. Budgeting with friends and family has never been so simple! Once you’ve created a new space, tap the “+” button in the top right corner to share it with up to 10 people.

Rules for Spaces—rule your budgeting

You can set rules for each space, allowing you to create standing orders within your spaces. This makes budgeting even faster. It works like a normal standing order but—instead of between two different accounts—you move your money between your spaces and your main account. You can create up to 10 rules for each space.

Set up a rule, then move on

You only need to set up a rule once, and then the app does the rest of the work for you. Your money will be moved automatically on set dates, making budgeting easier:

  1. Select a space and tap on the 3 dots
  2. Choose “Create a new rule”
  3. Tap “Repeat this transfer” and choose the frequency.

What is budgeting?

Budgeting is the process of making and preparing your own spending and savings plan for the future. This allows you to think ahead, organize your plans and know in advance if you’ll have enough money to do what you like in the coming months or years.

Why is budgeting important?

It’s very important to budget as it helps keep your finances in order—so you can spend money on the things that matter most to you, while avoiding any financial stress or debts.

How can N26 help me with my personal finances?

N26 has many saving and budgeting tools to help you to organize your personal finances. Shared Spaces can help you save and split expenses with family and friends, and you can also automate recurring money transfers between spaces and your main account with Rules. The N26 app also offers Insights, a feature where you can see your monthly spending split by category, so you’ll know exactly where your money is going.

What are Spaces accounts?

Each space created with Spaces is a sub-account that sits parallel to your main N26 account. They hold your money but can’t be used for spending or transactions.

How many spaces can I create?

N26 You and Metal users can have up to 10 additional spaces active at once. You can create, edit and delete spaces as often as you like.

What is Shared Spaces?

Shared Spaces is a new shared sub-accounts banking feature that sits within N26 Spaces—it’s accessible via the N26 app and web app. It lets you create a sub-account and share it with up to 10 other N26 users. Shared Spaces lets you invite your partner, friends, roommates and family as participants to add and spend together from the same Spaces sub-account. Each participant can easily transfer money between the shared space and their own N26 account, and even keep track of all transaction activities just by viewing the space details.

What is the difference between a joint bank account and N26 Shared Spaces?

With traditional joint accounts, two people open the account together, and then have equal legal ownership of it. The difference with Shared Spaces is that the N26 premium user who creates the space is the sole owner of the space. This means that anyone the owner invites to join is merely being given ‘Power of Attorney’ which allows them to access and/or contribute to the funds within that space.

Shared Spaces is the perfect solution for those looking for a simple, flexible and secure solution for handling a collective pool of money. N26 premium customers can save and share expenses with up to 10 people per shared space. You can do this with anyone you know and trust, and that has an N26 account—this includes partners, family members, friends, roommates and colleagues. You can also remove a participant at any time.
