Yes. Apple and Google are not trying to make money out of your B2B sales. An ideal solution might be to have a free app with some minimal functionality that lets you unlock the main content/functions with an IAP or a company login.

Alternatively it is possible to create two versions and go the paid download route for the consumer version. Then in the B2B version you can have almost everything behind a login in a free app. Apple prefer it if the app does something without a login. The only major restriction is that you can't link to a website where a company could sign up and pay for your app.

Hope that helps,
Mark
