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 self-employed.
After a balance of €50,000 or higher a custody fee may apply.
Should I open the account with my personal name or with my business name?
To sign up for N26 Business you must 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. This will automatically be deposited on a monthly basis. You don’t have to take any additional steps!
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.
