Types of business accounts offered by Beyond Bank

Beyond Bank Australia keeps it simple offering only three types of business bank accounts to its customers. Below we will go through each of these available accounts, their features and some eligibility requirements to open each account.

Business Transaction Account

Beyond Bank's Business Transaction Account is the only dedicated business bank account available with Beyond Bank. Some key features that you get when you open this account include¹:

  • Tiered interest rates calculated daily and paid monthly
  • No minimum or ongoing balance requirements
  • Access to online and mobile banking
  • Comes with Visa Debit card
  • Cheque book and batch banking options
  • A monthly allowance based on specific business value portfolio to cover transaction fees

The MonEsaver account is available to both personal and business customers. When opening this account as a business customer, you’ll get extra interest on business deposits.²
