What fees are there to pay?
The good news for businesses is that there are very few fees to pay with the Juni account. You can sign up completely free of charge, and there’s no fee for your physical and/or virtual Visa or Mastercard cards. There are also no fees for SEPA and Faster Payment transfers.
Juni does not charge for foreign card transactions, but if the currencies do not match, Visa or Mastercard may charge a fee. ATM withdrawals on the Visa card are also free of charge, but you could be charged up to €3 for the Mastercard card.
How to apply
To apply for the Juni business account, you’ll need to fill in an online form, providing details about yourself and your business. You will then be required to upload the necessary documents, including your ID, to complete the application process. Your account should be up and running within 10 business days.
Juni currently only accepts limited liability companies based in the UK or EEA.
Is Juni safe?
Juni Technology is a Swedish Limited Company. Its Visa Platinum card is issued by Payrnet Limited in the UK, and the Juni Mastercard is issued by Payment Card Solutions in the UK. Both of these issuers are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).
Juni does not operate as a bank which means the money you deposit with Juni will not be protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). Instead, it will be kept in safeguarded accounts in Luxembourg (for euros and US dollars) and the UK (for sterling). These are separate from the money used for Juni’s business operations which means that if Juni was to go bankrupt or become insolvent, you should get your money back.
Pros and cons
- Free to open an account
- Multiple currencies supported
- Google Ads integration
- All-in-one platform, allowing you to track finances with ease
- No FSCS protection
- Only available in UK and EEA
- Only open to limited liability companies
The Juni business account is primarily designed for businesses related to ecommerce, dropshipping and marketing. If this applies to you and you’re looking for an easy-to-use, low cost business account, Juni could be well worth exploring – even more so if you need to manage finances in multiple currencies.
However, as always, shop around and compare what other business accounts are available first, to be sure this is the best choice for you.
