Can I make transfers to any business account in China (or any other country) in USD or EUR currency? Or will it be changed to local currency automatically?
Xero online accounting integration is kind of key to using Revolut for Business with my current accountants, with whom I have been working with comfortably for the past several years.
Xero has the capability to automatically import bank statements to be reconciled; currently Xero does not recognise Revolut for Business. I am wondering with this stems from the fact that Revolut bank account features seems to be Revolut branding atop a Lloyds white-label banking platform, where Xero does not important Lloyds accounts either.
Is there any awareness of Xero and anything in the pipeline
apologies for the delay in getting back to you. With regards to managing your balance on ‘card level’ it’s more straightforward than you think - you would just need to make sure your currency account(s) that you linked your card(s) with (you can link to multiple currencies), are sufficiently funded.
You can receive payments to your Revolut account(s) via bank transfers currently while we’re implementing and will be launching other solutions soon.
Let us know if you have any additional questions - we’re here to help you out!
Thanks for this. This is indeed one of the highly desired features by many businesses likes yours. We’re working to introducing direct feed to Xero which will streamline your accounting processes. Until after this is developed, businesses could use ‘Download statement’ feature to download transaction history in CSV and upload to Xero and many more online accounting tools.
Let us know if any additional questions or requests!
Thanks for this - we currently support outbound payments in these currencies https://revolut.com/business/faq/#what-currencies-can-i-use-to-top-up-my-revolut-for-business-account
This means, that you could send USD and EUR to China to recipient’s USD and EUR accounts as we currently don’t support CNY.
Let know if you have any additional questions in the meantime
good question - actually, you can even define which currency accounts you want your cards to be linked to. It helps when you have funds in different currencies on your Revolut account(s) and are using Revolut business cards in different countries. So it can detect a currency automatically and take it from same currency account.
Let me know if you have any follow up questions on this. Cheers!
Yep I realised this was not a show stopper, but would be super cool!
I have another idea, which I originally pre-registered for R4B, but I will raise another thread for it.
@andriusb thanks for info. I have checked now to transfer usd to china but the country is not in the list just as currency isnt in the related list. Is there any other way to do it?
To send money there in one of our supported currencies instead ? https://revolut.com/business/faq/#what-currencies-can-i-use-to-top-up-my-revolut-for-business-account Please also feel free to leave your interest in country which we should support next here https://revolut.typeform.com/to/Cxz7Ci and we’ll notify when we launch there (including local currency transfers)
Hope this helps but let us know if you have any additional q’s
This thread is way too long; can you turn Revolut for Business into a category?

many many thanks for the feedback and ideas! They are going straight into our Trello cards (yes, we’re planning to put a product roadmap publicly to get a sense of what’s coming).
Look forward to keep hearing your feedback further!

some form of bulk-requesting the cards (example, importing from a spreadsheet, CSV file) for the whole organization, with a single initial shipment to a company rep. Or some form of linking each individual account request from the app to a company (example Invite unique code sent via SMS to each employee phone) to allow the individial app to be linked to a company and employee - and let him perform the onboarding / documents - via self service - via the current KYC excellent workflow.
Great! @andriusb Now I understand what you mean by the Trello cards. Not for individual onboarding but for product roadmap. Yes. Cool. And even better if you allow us to interact, suggest and vote (?) on ideas.
I’m interested in opening a Revolut for Business account, but first would like to know if MT940/CAMT.053 reporting is implemented by now for imports into bookkeeping software?
The same question for SEPA XML batch payments which are created by bookkeeping software to pay a group of suppliers in once.
Next to view and detailed PDF-statements, it is necessary to include computer process-able reporting formats. For bank statements both MT940 (legacy SWIFT standard) and CAMT.053 (fancy XML based, part of SEPA and based on ISO 20022) are used, I’m not sure if there is a credit card equivalent?
This should also be flexible, combining multiple cards onto one statement, or having a statement for each card. You should provide it.”
Just registered for a business account. Turns out I’m 770 on the waiting list. We are in need of an account quite urgently. Can somebody advise how long this will take? It is essential for us to get this sorted as soon as possible. Many thanks!
