What is Viola Corporate?
Viola Corporate is a web and mobile app featuring an online business account to enable businesses to have their own sort code and account number to receive client payments and to pay supplier invoices. An integral feature includes the card management account that uses Virtual and Physical prepaid cards to enable businesses to control their employee expenses in real time. The cards can be used worldwide across all merchants accepting Mastercard®.
Both the business and employees can only spend money that has been topped up into the accounts, so before using your online business account and card management account you need to make sure there are enough funds in the account.
The funds in the Viola Corporate Mastercard® account are not bank deposits and do not earn interest.
