What All To Do Before Opening A Bank Account For Your Business

Companies / Current Accounts Feb 11, 2020 - 06:17 PM GMT

By: Sumeet_Manhas


While getting prepped up for starting a business, a lot of things need to be taken care of. What kind of business it will be, what will be the target mass, who are your competitors, and so on. But before you get down to the big stuff, there are small but crucial things that you need to assess. This includes setting up a bank account for the business. The business itself is about transactions, therefore getting done with this step is of utmost importance. So, today we will go through a few things that you might want to do before you open your business bank account.

Understanding the type of account you need

Having a business account is different than maintaining a personal one. You would be required to deal with particulars like payrolls, incomes, taxes, and so on. However, having only one account can make things complicated and harder to organize. Thus, it is better to have different accounts for different finances based on the workings of your business. You may consult a professional to understand which kind of choices will be better for you.

Opting for the right bank

When it comes to a business bank account, you must do a little research before settling for a bank. You might be very comfortable with your bank, but when it comes to business, there are things and services that you should consider. Take a look at the banks that provide accounting services for your kind of business and seek out consultation. However, keep other options open as well and settle only for the one that can give you the best services and advice. 

Taking up a name for the business

If you have a business, people must know about that business or identify it through a name. Therefore, you need to decide on a name for your business. However, whatever name you chose, make sure that there are no other companies with the same name or nobody else has it trademarked. After checking it with the authorized office, you can then apply to trademark your business name. Not only will it be useful for building a brand name but also serve as the account name for your business bank account.

Sort the paperwork

Every bank would require some documents for setting up an account. The same would be needed here. Thus, before you go to the bank, make sure you know what materials they would be requiring. It is advised that you make the preparation beforehand to make the process easy and fast. Once you have the documents sorted, you are ready to set up a business bank account.

Provisions for payment

You have decided on your account type, selected a bank, decided on a name for your business, and sorted the paperwork, you would be able to open a business bank account. All you have to do now is set up a merchant account to start with your transactions. Nowadays, online payments have become more convenient. Therefore, you may even opt for that. Set up an account with an online transaction platform and link it with your account to have proper e-commerce transactions.
