The safety and security of business accounts at Revolut is ironclad. The company is FCA (Financial Conduct Authority) authorized to facilitate international and domestic money transfers. The integrity of the entire business framework is guaranteed by FCA regulations. Since card transactions are processed via VISA, MasterCard, and Maestro, they are protected by policies at these payments providers. Additionally, Revolut business customers can enjoy anti-fraud systems courtesy of machine learning algorithms that detect anomalies in client behavior.
If anomalies are spotted, the account will be frozen. Additional security systems in the form of 2 FA (Two-Factor Authentication) strengthen the protections available to clients, courtesy of email and SMS notifications. From a business perspective, it is possible to enable additional control over corporate cards at company level. Any feature can be disabled or enabled, and accounts can be frozen at the discretion of the business owner. New security features that will soon be available to business account holders include Google SSO and Google Authenticator.

Absolutely fantastic, can’t recommend it enough!!! Absolutely fantastic currency card, bank, app and savings/ investment tool. I originally got the card for business expenses when travelling but I now use it for almost all of my daily expenses. The added benefits just keep mounting up. Awesome!
I use Revolut as a personal account so when they launched Revolut for Business it was a no brainer! They are adding features all the time! For a small business like mine, it is great!! Simple to use, set up online then use the app the way banking should be! There are problems every now and again but they communicate them and inform you.
Simple, effective and easy to use If you need a business account, regardless of the size or location of your business. This is the account for you. None of the usual problems associated with business accounts. Easy to use, easy to monitor for accountancy purposes. It does what it says on the tin. I also have Revolut personal accounts and recently added children’s accounts too. One stop.
This app is a power-packed dynamo, with plenty of neat features. Any business that requires lots of flexibility in terms of its payments processing capacity, bookkeeping, business expense management, money transfers, and mobile account management, will benefit from using Revolut. Plus, there are competitively-priced plans available to business users, including a Free Account, Grow Account, Scale Account, and Enterprise Account. Each option is unique in terms of pricing, features, and scale. There are fees levied on withdrawals, and this should be borne in mind, since it will impact your business’s bottom line if you repeatedly withdraw via ATMs.
