Prospa’s online business account helps SMEs keep track of their business finances and monitor cash reserves at any time. With some financial institutions, small business accounts can include high monthly fees, which can be a hurdle for new or established small businesses, especially those with low transactions. At Prospa, our Business Account comes with no monthly fee to suit the needs small businesses.

What is a business account?

A business account can provide support and solutions to help with cash flow. Any small business that accepts or spends money should have a dedicated business account. One way to determine if you have the best business account for your business is if it offers you an easy way to keep track of your income and expenses in an easy-to-understand format. If you use an account for your business that includes other transactions (such as a personal account), it can be hard to separate your business from your personal expenses.

Your business account should allow you to grow alongside it, offer good value, and provide trust. Prospa’s no monthly fee business account is an excellent fit for most small businesses. It includes a Prospa Visa Business Debit Card you can use to access your funds (similar to a business credit card) is accepted anywhere that takes Visa. More payment options coming soon.
