Tide have taken my money and won't respond to communication


Really really disappointed in the fact that Tide do not operate a customer service hotline, even when other apps like Monzo and Starling do. I understand that Covid19 has lay pause to a lot of trading, however there is no excuse when other ‘online’ banks are still able to at least have one telephone line open.

I was paid into my business account yesterday, with the green (+) sign and the amount showing that everything was confirmed.

However, the funds are not reflecting in my balance. It’s not a pending amount either. My balance is still the same amount it was last week and I haven’t debited from that account.

Over £2k of funds have mysteriously disappeared (or have been taken by Tide), and after sending two emails to get someone to call me back, and several messages on the app, I am STILL waiting for an explanation as to where my money has gone? I’ve been waiting since yesterday, but to no avail.

I don’t recommend signing up a business account (where large amounts of money will often be transferred) to a bank where you can’t even talk to a human being. I’m currently trying to see how I can close my account after this is resolved and move my funds to another bank.



Thank you for bringing this to our attention, Stephanie.

While we have a lot of requests coming in recently and are having some delays in responding to every message, we do want to clarify the situation.

Yesterday, we experienced an issue with a few transfers, which would make them currently appear as two transactions in the Tide app - an inbound transfer and an immediate transfer out. This is due to the initial payment having been reversed to the sender. I’ll do my best to address your messages in the app as well, but I want to assuage any concerns that your funds are not missing, they’ve simply been returned.



I have found all my dealings with this bank to be at best frustratingly disappointing at worst downright scary. The lack of communication and the glitches on the app make me feel profoundly unsafe.

Hi. You have raised my case to relevan team as an urgency but it doesnt seem like that wat. I got the reply from Ryan. Which i have added. Please transfer my fund as soon as possible. Its been more than 3 weeks now. Once you already decided to close my account and trasfer my fund back to my account then it should be done immediately. I dont understand why are you taking so long to trasfer the fund. Its totalt unfair to me. Please do it as soon as possible.

We are working as quickly as possible to get these funds returned to yourself, however this can take several working days. As soon as we have a further update, we will be in touch immediately, however until then, I’m afraid we will not have any further information to provide.
