Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of a business account in Australia?

Opening an Australian business account makes it easier for your business to grow. It lets you keep all your business income and expenses in one central location, separating them from your personal expenses.

You can send, hold and receive currency directly in AUD and pay your suppliers faster.

Do I need a business account for my small business?

If you’re a sole trader, you can do your business banking within your personal account. But if you’ve set up your small business under a company structure, a business account is a legal requirement.
