Who is Modulr?

In August 2019, Modulr was chosen from 76 applicants to receive a £10m grant from the Capability and Innovation Fund (CIF), part of the Alternative Remedies Package of measures agreed between the UK Government and the European Commission following the failed divestment of RBS' SME arm, Williams and Glyn. The grant is administered and overseen by the independent Banking Competition Remedies Ltd.

We were awarded the grant to drive our firm conviction that SMEs and their accountants deserve simple, secure and reliable payment capabilities. As part of our commitment, we’ll be partnering with accountancy practices and software providers, including Sage, to roll out improved payment functionality, in a multiplier effect to 860,000 SMEs by 2024. Read our full commitments and roadmap here.
