Business Savings Account
With the upturn of the market and world economy
in the last few months, more and more people are considering
starting a new business. Not only is new business spurred on by the
economy, but also the great possibilities that the internet seems to
hold. For whatever reason a person gets into business a
consideration to take serious hold of is the acquisition of a
business savings account.
When people are sole proprietors of a business their inclination is
often to not concern themselves with getting away from their old
personal accounts. However, the benefits to utilizing business funds
in a more business-specific account has its upside, which is worth
considering. These benefits include tax accountability, interest
rate hikes and even matters of a more personal, egoistic nature.
When one speaks of a business savings account, a thought that comes
to mind is "how can I benefit from it (as opposed to other
accounts)?" In this modern world of ours it seems that taxes are
nearly everything yet particularly for business owners. When monies
are placed in accounts that are representative of business profits
this will aid a CPA in sorting out what is what. As well, it limits
suspicion on the part of the IRS for reasons that aren't exactly
clear. (The tax board terms this 'transparency' amongst other
similar catch-words in use today.)
Another very popular reason for stowing one's money away into a
business savings account, as opposed to a personal account or
mattress, is interest. Normally most personal accounts pay a
percentage of only 3 or 4 percent (if you're lucky, in some places).
However, banks know a good deal when they see one. The truth is that
they tend to offer a higher rate of interest for accounts servicing
businesses as they know that these accounts tend to make much
Finally, there is the ego of the business person. Business people
tend to see themselves as separate, even above the average person.
This is not an attack, but a simple fact. The reasons for such
feelings of smugness or even elitist superiority are that business
people are go-getters, and they know it. When a person holds
multiple accounts at the local bank, including a business savings
account, well, that just feels like one more giant purple feather in
the business cap, and why shouldn't it feel as such?
