Our verdict

Save time and easily manage cash flow with a Commonwealth Bank Business Transaction Account.

The Commonwealth Bank Business Transaction Account has a $0 monthly account fee option and includes unlimited free electronic transactions. However, you’ll need to pay a $3 fee for each staff-assisted transaction you make in branch.

If you regularly need to make deposits or withdrawals in branch, you can switch to the $10 monthly account fee option instead (such as via NetBank) which also includes unlimited free electronic transactions as well as 20 staff-assisted transactions. Being able to choose between the two fee options means you’re not paying for something that you don’t use, which is great.

You can also integrate your account with Xero or MYOB to easily import your transaction data from NetBank and help manage your accounting.

Pros

  • Fee-free transactions
  • Real-time alerts
  • $0 opening balance
  • Unlimited electronic transactions

Cons

  • Available for businesses only

$0 monthly account fee

This account charges no monthly account keeping fee and offers unlimited free electronic transactions. However, fees do apply when making assisted transactions in a bank branch. This account has a $10 monthly fee option which includes 20 staff-assisted transactions per month. If you need to make a lot of transactions in branch, you can switch to this account option at any time via NetBank, over the phone or heading into a branch. Or, you can keep the $0 monthly fee option and pay a small fee each time you make a staff-assisted transaction.

Account management

The Commonwealth Bank Business Transaction Account separates your business finances from your personal accounts. Not only does this make it easier to keep track of your business transactions at tax time, but it also ensures that you can easily monitor your business's cash flow at all times through NetBank.

MYOB and Xero integration

Integration with MYOB and Xero means you can streamline accounting by allowing you to send online transaction data with CommBank's NetBank.

Question about the International Transaction Fee of 3%. Does this mean if you order something on-line from overseas you pay an extra 3% of that transaction amount to the bank. Or does this mean if you are physically overseas and purchase something they will charge you 3%? Hope that makes sense.

Hi Gemma,

This fee applies whenever a currency conversion is required – including both purchases made overseas, and purchases made online when a currency conversion is required. Yes, the fee is an additional 3% of the transaction value.

Thanks,

Alison
