Expert review

This is an everyday transaction account with no account keeping fees that can be opened by personal or business customers. The account offers easy access to your money whenever you need it via Internet and mobile banking, as well as the linked Visa Debit Card.

You’ll even earn a small amount of interest on your balance, however the current variable interest rate is 0.05% which is quite low. That being said, it’s not common for a transaction account to pay any interest at all.
