Frequently Asked Questions

What is a business account?

A business account helps business owners and managers hold and manage money separately from their personal accounts. 

Opening up a business account allows you to track money going in and out of your business, keeping you in complete control.

An Airwallex business account simplifies the challenge of managing your business finances with additional features for doing business overseas such as multi-currency accounts and employee payment cards.

What is the benefit of opening a business account?

Opening up a dedicated business account has many advantages, regardless of whether you’re operating your business as a limited company, partnership or sole trader. 

Not only is it a legal requirement for most businesses, having a full view of your business finances makes tracking your income, expenses and profit much easier.

How much does it cost to open a business account?

A modern business account typically offers a simple fee structure and intuitive software features that save time, effort and money - usually in the way of pay-per-usage.

Traditional banks have been getting away with complex fee structures that are confusing, and sometimes misleading, like baking fees into their FX conversion rates.

You often end up paying for unnecessary overheads, like bank branches, instead of the core services and functionality you need.

Can I open a business account online?

Unlike most high street banks, yes you can open a business account online without needing to visit a branch in person. The application process, ID verification and card issuing can all be completed completely online.
