I started freelancing during the pandemic and immediately realized that I absolutely need an EU bank account that I could link to my freelance platform. This was essential for me in order to receive money from all my foreign clients. Quarantine and restrictions left me no choice but to open an account online and I'm really glad I chose Satchel. I like using the app to manage my transfers and the card to spend all the money I earn. By the way, the card was delivered really fast which was a nice surprise.

FAQ

Do I need to have a bank account to work as a freelancer?

Show more Show less

A current account with attractive fees and a possibility to issue a payment card for online and in-store purchases is an absolute necessity for a freelancer.
We live in a digital and cashless world, which makes it hard to be efficient without a reliable digital channel to manage your incoming and outgoing transactions. This is particularly true for freelancers, who rarely limit their operations to a single geography and have to manage relationships (including financial transactions) with multiple international clients. For more information and useful tips on opening a current account for a freelancer, please read our dedicated blog post.

What is the advantage of a freelance account over a personal account?

Show more Show less

As a freelancer you are running a business, and it is important to separate your personal and business bank accounts as soon as your freelance activity begins to generate regular income and expenses. Here are some benefits of having a separate freelancer account:

  • Simplified budgeting & accounting
  • Professional reputation
  • Legal protection
