Expert review

This account is best suited to business customers who make a lot of transactions in branch, for example depositing cash and cheques. The account has a $20 monthly fee, which is quite high, however you get 70 free staff-assisted transactions a month. Normally these transactions in branch will have a fee of a few dollars each time.

If you make even more than 70 in-branch transactions in a month, there are some business bank accounts that offer unlimited in-branch transactions. Or, if you don’t make many in-branch transactions, the BankSA Business Freedom Account allows 20 free staff-assisted transactions for a $10 monthly fee instead.

Key features

Monthly fee

There is an $20 monthly maintenance fee with this account that can be waived if you are also using BankSA’s Commercial Overdraft or Business Maximiser Overdraft facility.

Transaction fees

You are allowed up to 55 free deposits and/or withdrawals at a branch, and 55 free cheque deposits or merchant envelopes each month. Your account will be charged $1.00 for each transaction that exceeds the 55 limit.
