Opening A Current Account

Running a business and wondering how to open a current account? This is one question we get asked on a daily basis; hence, we’ve decided to put some light on it. The first and foremost thing to know is, having a current account is not a prerequisite for running a business. A current account is needed only if your business has a lot of incoming and outgoing cash transactions on a daily or monthly basis. In this case, it is best to open a current account to ensure the smooth functioning of your business.

What Is A Current Account?

A Current account is also known as ‘Transactional account’ as there is no limit on the number of transactions that one can carry on in a day. These accounts are not held for the purpose of investment of savings but just for the daily business transactions. These accounts are the most liquid type of accounts possible and this is why banks don’t pay any interest on the amount that’s in these accounts. Some banks can also charge a small fee for the service they provide for these current bank accounts.

Who Can Open Current Account?

Any business owner or a company who has multiple transactions on a daily or monthly basis can open a current account. In short, those who have transactions on the higher side need to open a current account.

Which Is The Best Bank To Open Current Account?

Choosing the best bank to open a current account is not as confusing as it may seem. Most banks offer all the features and services you will normally find in personal accounts such as NEFT, Mobile banking, Debit & Credit cards, Overdrafts, Cheque handling & a lot more. However, you may or may not be charged for the transaction you make via your current account. So, the best way to choose a bank for opening your current account is by doing a thorough analysis of all the options you have and what suits your requirement the best.  It’s just like choosing a mobile plan for yourself.
