- Monzo has launched its business banking service, providing free and premium accounts.
- The launch follows a year-long beta testing period with some 2500 small and medium-sized businesses.
- The digital bank holds around £2bn in deposits and was last year valued at £2bn despite reporting losses of £47.2m in 2018.
