As others have stated the absence of IBAN is blocking me form using the business account, I need one to register with a corporation who will pay in GBP from the UK just they insist on an IBAN in their registration. I can generate an IBAN using an online generator which directs to Pre Pay Technology, will this work?

I will need foreign transfers going forward and its great you are working on this (for a year) but this is a technicality for a uk GBP payment,

Hi Dominic,

You’ll be glad to know that we’ve started testing international payments. We’re gradually inviting our members on iOS with a Registered Business account to test the feature with Android members to follow shortly after.

If you’d like to join the Tide preview waitlist and test the feature before its general release, could you please reach out to our Help team in the app? They’d be happy to assist you.


I can see from the Forum that you began testing international payments (for some time now) I have reached out to the Help Team who said they do not need any more testers. As I already stated the IBAN I wish to use is NOT for an international payment merely the format that is required by a corporation I need to register with.

Hi Valentine
I urgently need to be able to accept payments from a client based in France. Your FAQs say there are third party services which currently allow this - can you tell me who they are?

Hi Arabella,

Our Member Support team has reached out to you in-app with more information about joining our Preview programme so you can start testing IBAN :slight_smile:

Don’t hesitate to get back to them if you have any questions.

Hi Valentine,

We’re going to be dealing with international customers early next year and will need a Iban number - really hope to be able to do this through tide if possible.

Could you add me to the waiting list please?

Many thanks.


I have just started my business and opened a TIDE account only to today find that i cannot charge my international client as he pays by international bank transfer. The account looks good for me but as this feature is not available i will need to close my account and open another account elsewhere

Hi @Mikeprent and @mikeychalmers,

I’m happy to let you know that I have added you both on the waitlist.

Our team should be in touch soon :slight_smile:

Let me know if you have any questions in the meantime.

Hi, I would like to be added to the ones requesting IBAN. I am now sending our first invoice to a client abroad and it’s a shame the money cannot go into the company’s account! I have a limited company. Cheers,


PS do you think there is any way you could enable this today for me? Otherwise I will just send the invoice with my other account on it. Please let me know asap, thanks.
