Expert review

This everyday business transaction account allows you to make unlimited electronic transactions and 25 free staff-assisted transactions (for example deposits in branch) each month. In exchange, you’ll be charged a monthly account fee of $10. The 25 included staff-assisted transactions should be more than enough for most businesses, however if you do a lot more banking in branch the Westpac Business One High Plan Account offers 60 free staff-assisted transactions per month for a $20 monthly account fee.

Westpac has one of the largest ATM networks globally, as it’s part of the Global ATM Alliance. This means you can make free withdrawals at more that 50,000 international ATMs, which could save you lots of money in ATM fees if you travel regularly for work and often use cash. Although, there is a 3% international transaction fee applied to overseas card transactions. While we are starting to see more bank accounts drop this fee, it is still fairly standard across the board.

This account can help you manage your business finances by linking it to your accounting software including MYOB, XERO and Quickbooks, and the Biz Invoice platform which helps you create and manage your business invoices.
