Compare Business Bank Accounts

To choose the best banking options for your company you should compare business bank accounts to see what they offer. Start by narrowing down your options to those banks that accept customers in your industry and jurisdiction. Then list the deal-breaking services that you need from a bank and narrow the list down further. Continue to compare business bank accounts according to the services, fees, charges, and contract terms and conditions. This should give you a good idea of the right corporate account for your business. When comparing business bank accounts consider the requirements for opening an account; overdraft charges; fees for transactions plus the onboarding fee. Compare whether business accounts offer debit cards, online banking, checkbooks, interest, and if they have a minimum/maximum balance requirement. The best business bank accounts will have excellent customer support and added-value incentives. Most importantly can the business bank account be tailored to your needs?

 

Compare Online Bank Accounts 2021

If you want to compare online bank accounts 2021 you have to look at which online account offers the services that you are interested in, as everyone’s banking needs are different. The basic must-have features of any online bank account include a user-friendly interface; 24/7 technical support; customer support and security, encryption, and anti-fraud measures to protect your information and money. Compare online bank accounts 2021 mobile access; debit and credit cards; ATM access; the required initial deposit and fees. An important point to compare is whether you will need to make a personal visit to a bank branch to complete the application process. If you want to compare online bank accounts 2021 for a business then you should check if the account includes a unique IBAN and low-cost international transfers. Compare any legal requirements to opening a business bank account online and whether the bank accepts customers from your jurisdiction and industry.

 

Business Bank Account Interest Rate Comparison

If you want to let your company’s money work for you while it sits in the bank then you should consider putting it into a business savings account rather than leaving it is in a business current account. If you make a business bank account interest rate comparison between business savings and current accounts you will see that the savings account earns much higher interest. A business bank account interest rate comparison between the different types of accounts shows that fixed-rate/term bonds give you a fixed interest rate for a set term. Access to your funds before the end of that term will result in a penalty or closure of your account. A notice account or easy access account has a changing interest rate but withdrawals can be made with minimum or no notice. Consider how much access your business needs to its saved funds before choosing a business savings account. To put it simply – the longer you are willing to lock your money away the higher the interest rate.

 

Business Current Account Comparison

If you want to make a business current account comparison, consider whether the accounts are open to businesses in your industry, especially if you have a high-risk business. Check that you can receive and send payments to the jurisdictions you work in. To do a business current account comparison it is important to look at the services offered; the monthly maintenance fee and any other charges. Compare the transaction limit; the cards that come with the account and ease of integration with accounting and software. Ask whether the business current accounts cater for mass payments. See if loans are available; if multiple signature rights are possible, and if they have a minimum balance or withdrawal limit. Customer support, online banking, and overdraft terms should also be considered. An accurate business current account comparison should look at whether the account is offered by a traditional bank, EMI, or digital-only bank as each of these has its pros and cons.

 

Compare Premium Bank Accounts

A premium bank account, gold account, or packaged account provides banking services, as well as added-value perks. Premium bank accounts can include cashbacks, travel insurance, mobile insurance, store discounts, and more. There is a fee for a premium bank account so the extra benefits are not actually free. If you compare premium bank accounts consider whether you will use the benefits you are paying for with a monthly fee. For example, compare the HSBC Advanced Bank Account; Santander 123 Lite Current Account, and TSB Spend & Save. If you compare premium bank accounts of larger banks you will find Bank of Scotland; Lloyds and NatWest offer accounts of this type. The impact of the coronavirus crisis has caused many banks to either alter the terms of premium accounts or change the conditions of the included travel insurance and other benefits. Due to COVID-19, many premium accounts are no longer available for new customers and existing premium account holders are faced with new terms and conditions.
