Should I open the account with my personal name or with my business name?

What happens if I use my N26 Business account for personal spending?

N26 Business is the online bank account designed for freelancers, therefore you’re expected to use it mainly for business purposes. However, you can also use it for private purposes as long as these are in a minority compared to your business spending. You may also use it to receive payments from customers, for spendings related to your business activity such as traveling, or to pay the rent.
