Do I need a business bank account if I work as a freelancer?

How do I open an N26 Business Standard bank account?

Opening an N26 Business Standard account takes only a few minutes and can be done directly from a smartphone. If you meet our eligibility criteria, all you need is a compatible smartphone and a valid ID document. Once we’ve verified your identity, you can add your virtual N26 Business Mastercard debit card to your mobile wallet, and begin using your business bank account right away.

Should I register with my personal name or company name?

You’ll need to use your personal first and last name to open a N26 Business Standard bank account. All N26 Business bank accounts are designed for freelancers and the self-employed who run their business under their own name.

How do I receive cashback with my N26 Business Mastercard?

Your 0.1% cashback is automatically calculated by us for every purchase made with your N26 Business Mastercard—there’s no action required from your side. We’ll deposit your cashback to your N26 Business Standard account every month.

Can I have both a business account and a personal account with N26?

Unfortunately, you cannot hold both a personal and business bank account with N26 at the same time. If you already have a personal N26 account and want to open an N26 Business account, you must first close your personal N26 account before registering for an N26 Business account.

Can I use my N26 Business Standard bank account for personal expenses?

The N26 Business Standard bank account is designed for freelancers. For this reason, it’s expected that the majority of your spending will be for business purposes. However, you can also use it for personal expenses, as long as these are a minority compared to your business spending. Some examples of accepted personal use include paying rent, or for expenses incurred during your business trips.
