Business Essentials tariffs

For smaller businesses buying a new phone or tablet

Stay connected on the go

Business goes up, business goes down. So our tariffs change when you need them to.

Want more control over your spending? Set a Spend Cap to limit how much you can spend on extras like calls, texts and data that are outside your monthly allowance. Adjust your cap whenever you need, to stay in control of your budget.

Why choose Business Essentials

Minutes and texts are included

Choose how much data you want, from 500MB to 50GB. And increase or decrease your data every 30 days. You’ll know how much data you have left, with alerts once you’ve used 80% and 100%.

Upgrade when it suits you

Upgrade your devices as often as you like. Easily add new connections as your business grows. If you don’t want to upgrade once you’ve paid off your Device Plan, your bill will automatically reduce.

Calls and texts to the EU

If you choose a tariff with 6GB or more data from 14 September 2018, then you’ll get UK to EU minutes and texts included*. So you can call contacts in the EU, without worrying about the cost.

Get EU roaming included

Our Business Essentials tariffs include roaming in our Europe Zone, so you can use your phone like you’re at home. And if you’re going further, you can add a Rest of World pass to stay connected.

You’re in control of your spend

You can set a limit on how much you want to spend on top of your monthly plan, so there are no unexpected bills. You can adjust your Spend Cap whenever you need, to stay in control of your budget.

Add business apps for smarter working

Work faster and more efficiently with our handpicked business apps. Add them at the beginning of your contract, or whenever you need them - they're all on 30 day rolling contracts.

Business Essentials from O2 Business

When your business needs change, we offer you flexibility and control over your mobile tariff, devices and apps.

More about Business Essentials

A fairer way to pay

As soon as you’ve finished paying for your device, we stop charging you for it. You'll have two contracts and two monthly bills – one for your device and one for your minutes, texts and data (your airtime).

You’ll pay for your device over 24 months, on a 0% representative APR loan. If you want to pay less each month, you can make an upfront payment. Or you can pay for your phone or tablet in full, and only pay for your airtime each month. If you have more than one device on a single credit agreement, extra terms and conditions will apply.

Buying a tablet

If you’re buying a tablet, we offer a Business Essentials tariff without the minutes and texts.

Bolt Ons

Bolt Ons give you extra minutes, messages and data, to make your tariff work harder for you. You can add and remove them every 30 days, so you’re in control.

The Sarnie Business

Real people. Crazy situations. What could go wrong?


Lauren and Scott are a couple of young, ambitious entrepreneurs, keen to get started in a new venture that puts them in control. O2 Business gave them £500 and a chance to launch The Sarnie Business, selling sandwiches to busy London workers.


But business can go up or down in the time it takes to make a BLT – they’ve got two weeks to make a go of it, with a basketload of wind-ups and cock-ups in-between. Will they be sarnie superheroes – or lunchtime losers?
