When starting out in business it is usually a prerequisite to open a business account to mange your finances. Unfortunately for many it is uncertain what kind of services your account will need to provide. Here are some of the most common issues that concern small business managers when they are opening an account.

The first issue is the amount of interest your account should provide. More advisable is instead of looking for high interest rates to study the charges that will be applicable to your business account. High interest usually means greater penalties for going into your overdraft, as a young business you may be in and out of the red so try to avoid high interest accounts. If you do however want to pursue high interest rates it is best to look online as internet banks often offer great rates to attract customers.

You may be asking yourself if you will actually need a business account; naturally business is always dependent upon money and ensuring your money is well kept should be a major concern. A business account will help you identify all of your transaction processes and ensure you have clarity. A dedicated account will also provide you with accountability so creditors and the tax man can easily understand your business dealings during audits. It can also give your business some credibility as the bank will usually have to approve your model before managing you finances. That said, it is not crucial to hold a business account. If you are operating as a sole trader there is no need for you to open one, your personal account will suffice.

When you are choosing an account you will be bombarded with services that in reality you will not need. It is best to open a simple checking account that allows you to pay checks and withdraw money. A savings account would be ill-advised as it is unlikely that you will have much to save during the initial stages of starting operations. As a sole trader it is possible to open account that not only presents your name but also the type of business you operate, this can create a far more professional look. As a limited company you will need to open the account in the name of your company rather than your own name.

It is not always advisable to open an account with the bank that controls your personal finances. Shop around as the variety can be amazing; in terms of services, charges and interest. It is also advisable to not give one bank too much control over your finances, if they already manage your personal funds, your company may benefit from using another bank. As a new customer you will also be open to more services than you would be as an existing customer.

When opening an account you will need a number of items. First and foremost the manager will want to see a business plan to see if your chances of success are acceptable. They will also want to know where the start up funds are coming from. Of course a list of signatories will be needed to note who will have access to the finances. While monthly statements are usually sufficient in a personal account, your company will most probably need updates more frequently to assess your financial position accurately. This may carry an added charge but will normally be worth the fee.

By following the advice given in this brief outline it should be possible to find the perfect account to suit your business requirements. Starting a company can be difficult and risky and hence ensuring the safety and efficiency of your finances is advisable.
