New business owners can use the app to open a current account with our partners (and get their formation fee refunded) or with any other financial institution of their choice. In current circumstances, we see many people seeking to start a new business or take a different career path. This is why we believe our application is a perfect example of how innovation and start-ups contribute to the UK’s economic wellbeing.”
