      Hello Eliza,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      To operate Business Cash Reserve account, you need to have a Westpac business transaction account in the same name. This would let you move funds between these accounts as often as you like, for free when using Westpac online or automated telephone banking

      Hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Jonathan
