The ANZ Business Essentials account is a simple, straight-forward business bank account that is designed to help you manage your business funds. It allows you to keep your business cash separate from your personal accounts.
This account doesn’t have any monthly account keeping fees, which is great as some business bank accounts have monthly fees of $10 or more. However, it only includes 20 free ANZ transactions per month (this includes ANZ ATM withdrawals and electronic transactions). Plus, fees apply to staff-assisted transactions, for example transactions made in a branch. So if your business makes a lot of transactions, make sure you consider the additional fees for this.
You can also link your bank account transactions directly to your accounting software using ANZ Bank Feeds, which is handy for admin at tax time.
