About us

Who is Thrive?

Thrive is an Australian-owned digital business account for sole traders & small businesses.

Thrive was created by a team of small business owners who grew frustrated with the poor quality of business banking options.

By building an awesome business account from the ground up, our mission is to help small business owners succeed by saving the time & money associated with financial admin.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is Thrive different from normal banks?

We think that financial admin, accounting, tax and budgeting should be something that just happens, it shouldn’t have to ‘be done’. Our vision is to become a small business financial services hub that automates these tasks and empowers businesses to grow. 

Our economy has been built on the back of small business and we will strive every day to connect with businesses and skilled professionals to get them where they want to be, as soon as can be.

We're a team of passionate business owners, and we have seen first hand the challenges involved in running a business. We started Thrive to offer small businesses a better way to manage and maximise their money.

Is Thrive a bank?

Thrive is a business account that provides automated accounting admin, tax forecasts and invoicing. Your Thrive business account comes with a debit card, including a BSB and account number that allows you to transact and make and receive payments. 

We are not a bank. We are partnering with an existing fully registered bank to bring our account to market. This means that deposits provided through the Thrive site and apps are protected by the Financial Claims Scheme (FCS), up to $250,000 per person. Thrive also uses the latest security technology, including smart notifications, biometrics and fraud detection to protect your money & privacy.

Who can use Thrive?

We’re currently open to any Australian resident that operates a registered business structured as a partnership, sole trader or limited company. We can only ship a Thrive debit card to an Australian address, so you must have one of those as well.

When will Thrive be launched?

We’re moving full steam ahead to launch later in 2020. By signing up to our waiting list you can secure priority access in our first public release, get access to exclusive deals and also stay up to date with news about our progress.

Is Thrive tax deductable?

The good news is for the majority of you - yes! You will be eligible for any subscription fees you paid for Thrive in the prior 12 months. You will need to add it to section D10 – “Cost of Managing Tax Affairs”. The fees you pay for tax return help are always tax deductible. You can read further details from the ATO here.

How does Thrive's automatic accounting work?

By transacting with your Thrive debit card and sending and receiving invoices, we can see your financial activity in real-time. Using this data we categorise these transactions according to professional accounting standards. You can also upload and scan receipts to keep track of them digitally. Thrive uses this information to identify your tax obligations, forecast your tax position and to ultimately help you maximise your tax return whilst staying compliant.

Does Thrive integrate with accounting software like Xero & MYOB?

Thrive already includes a lot of standard accounting, invoicing and financial admin services provided by other accounting software packages, however we recognise that some business owners would prefer to stick to what they already use. We will be offering integrations with these partners to reduce any friction in managing your business. Our goal is to help you succeed and save time in any way we can.

Does Thrive charge a monthly account fee?

No, Thrive will offer a market-leading free basic account that doesn’t charge any monthly account keeping fees. For access to more advanced features such as automated accounting admin, tax forecasts and invoicing, monthly fees start at $20 a month, a small drop in the ocean in comparison to the money you will save on accounting software or a bookkeeper.

Does Thrive charge ATM fees?

No, ATM access for Thrive customers will be free. Although Thrive does not charge ATM fees, some smaller financial institutions or independent ATM operators may charge fees for using their ATMs. They must display the fee at the time of the transaction and allow you to accept or decline the fee as shown.

I already have a business bank account, can I still use Thrive?

Thrive is perfect for existing businesses that might be suffering from the burden of managing their finances, accounting and tax requirements. When Thrive launches, you won’t need to move bank accounts if you don’t want to. You can simply just plug in your existing bank account using Open Banking (a new Australian Government initiative to allow you to share pertinent banking information with approved third parties) to see all your transactions within Thrive. This allows you to take advantage of all the great Thrive features but decide later if you want to switch everything over - which we’re confident you will! 🙂

So don’t fret if you currently have an account with ANZ, Bankwest, Bendigo Bank, Commonwealth Bank, National Australia Bank or Westpac, you can still use Thrive to make your life easier.
