Monese was founded in 2015 as an account that helps to take the hassle out of setting up a bank account without the need for perfect credit scores and address history confirmation. They also made it so that you can open the account instantly from your mobile phone, so you don’t need to visit a branch.
Monese’s mobile app alternative to the traditional banks offers personal banking and launched business bank accounts in 2018. Their business bank account requires business owners to have a personal account first and they allow them to manage both accounts in a single app.

They provide counter services through PayPoints and Post Offices where charges occur but offer free electronic transfers.
