UK-based Tide has reportedly closed a $14m Series A funding round led by Anthemis and Creandum.

The platform also allows a client to upload an invoice from suppliers, which will then prepared into a payment.
With the funding Tide plans to nearly double its London staff and develop its offering to make it even easier for SMEs.
Alongside this investment the company has announced a partnership with online lender iwoca, to create its first loan program, the reports state.
Last year the company received a $2m seed round led by Passion Capital.
