Is N26 Business free?

N26 Business is free to open online with no account management fees. It’s the easiest business bank account to open if you’re a freelancer or you’re self-employed.

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

To sign up for N26 Business you have to use your personal name and last name. The N26 Business account is designed for self-employed and freelance users doing business under their own name. That means you can’t have your company’s name on the account or card.

Can I have a regular N26 bank account and an N26 Business account at the same time?

It’s possible to do business banking and spending with your N26 Business Mastercard and personal spending with your additional Maestro card on the same account. However, it’s currently not possible to have two separate N26 accounts at the same time.

How do I get my cashback on Mastercard purchases?

Since N26 Business is an online business bank account, you’ll receive your 0.1% cashback on all Mastercard purchases directly into your account. It will automatically be deposited at the end of every quarter. You don’t have to take any additional steps!

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

The N26 Business bank account makes it easy to do personal spending on the same account if you have both the Mastercard and Maestro cards that are easily available from the app. As long as you use the Mastercard for business spending and the Maestro card for personal spending, you can continue to enjoy the many advantages of the account.
