Stay in control from anywhere. Use the app to freeze, unfreeze, or cancel and re-order your card.

Company expense cards
Order up to 35 Tide Expense Cards for your team and keep track of who's spending what. Set up sub-accounts to ring-fence money for expenses.

Use everywhere
Spend in shops, buy online and withdraw cash worldwide wherever Mastercard is accepted.

Why Tide?

Tide is dedicated to supporting small businesses. That’s why they’ve created a current account with you in mind.

Auto-categorisation
Tide automatically tags your income and spending, making it much easier to keep tabs on what you are spending your money on. Customise the labels to suit your company.

Easy expenses
Upload receipts, auto-match them to transactions, add a note if you like and it’s all stored digitally. No more piles of paper receipts littering your office!

Sync with accountancy software
Link your account to software like Xero, QuickBooks, FreeAgent, Sage and more. This gives you better control over your bank balance in real time and makes it easier to do bank reconciliations.

Send, pay and track invoices
No need for a separate system, keep on top of your invoices directly in our app. Yep, a bank account that handles your invoicing too.

Easy account access
Manage your finances in a way that works for you, whether it’s in the palm of your hand, or from your computer.

Contactless Mastercard
