I have been a customer of Coconut since March 2018 and they have provided a good service. This week they have decided to close my account and give no reason, and tell me that the monies in the account will be help for up to 45 days. I need the money to run my business. They have effectively shut me down in one day. I've raised complaints to the FCA and the Financial Ombudsman, and emailed PPS (their banking partner). I understand as an intermediary to PPS, Coconut have less hands on when PPS tell them to a close an account, but 45 days creates extreme hardship! I wouldn't move to Coconut - i'd stay clear if you were looking for a Fintech bank. I'd go to Starling, or Monzo - or better still - stick with the high street.

Current account, bookkeeper and tax advisor in 1 app

Seamless, safe and fulfilling experience. One doesn't need to have separate services for baking, bookkeeping and tax consulting anymore: coconut fulfill all your needs.

Coconut makes your life as an entrepreneur much easier

Coconut is constanly surprising us with new features. It has been using Open Banking's potential fully, integrating their new technology and approach to accounting broadly.

i have started a new business and opened an account with coconut. I had my first invoice paid in and the next morning my account was frozen due to money laundering/fraud checks. As a new business all of my business funds was paid in which subsequently means I now cannot run my business and work with my clients. I have forwarded the invoice and still my account is frozen.
This is a completely poor service as anti money laundering/fraud checks should be carried out prior to opening any new accounts?!
Coconut have now jeopardised my business and my relationship with my new clients.
I would not recommend opening an account with this organisation and I have learnt the hard way.
Stick to major high street banks for peace of mind and level of professional service as I will be doing in future.

Incredible team with an incredible app - tax made easy

I've loved being an early user of Coconut - the service and connectivity with their people is amazing - from super responsive in app chat, to hosted events in their offices. The app itself is superb, providing all the functionality that a freelancer needs to manage their financial and tax affairs. Sharing their roadmap and welcoming suggestions in feedback just rounds off the great experience of being a Coconutter!

Having a tough time working out what this tax kerfuffle is? Coconut is hooking you up with a solid product that combines business banking and account management with a good transaction history and invoicing built in! It even works out how much tax I have to pay on the fly so no more playing the guessing game!

Excellent service

The coconut app is very easy to use, it’s convenient to send and receive invoice payments. Money comes through very quickly. The customer service is 1st class. I have already recommended them other business owners.
