How does choosing a current account benefit a business?
Current accounts offer key features that are beneficial to any business owner who chooses to sign up for them:
Business owners need not worry about having no balance in their current account:
The overdraft facility helps business owners deal with a short-term cash crunch by overdrawing from their current account. This feature is a current account-only feature and it helps business owners deal with unforeseen financial emergencies, thus helping them always sustain their growth.
The bank offers cheque leaves that customers can use every month free of charge:
Savings account holders receive a limited number of cheque books with their account. However, this is not the case with current accounts, since the account holders are provided with a fixed number of cheque leaves monthly, free of charge. Business owners, therefore, need not worry about running out of cheques.
No limit on the transaction amounts or the number of transactions made:
Current accounts also do not have any transaction limit; thereby enabling customers to transact as often as they wish through the payment mode of their choice – online transfer, cheques, or demand drafts.
Current accounts can help business owners improve their credit score:
Since a current account is a record of a business owner’s transactions including the repayment of debt, it can also act as a proof of the account holder’s capability to repay debt. Account holders can leverage their current accounts to increase their credit score and demonstrate higher creditworthiness.
Knowing about the benefits and features of current accounts can help customers identify the features that matter most to them and subsequently select the account that is best for them.
