In recent years, the government’s push for going digital has gained traction in both private and public centre enterprises. The financial system, be it securities exchange or taxation or transactional exchange, has come under increased legal scrutiny due to digitisation. In essence, it is a noble venture that aims to do away with age-old methods of paper banking and physical verifications, but as early adopters, many small business owners are finding it a difficult transition. One of the main reasons behind these difficulties is the single-use bank accounts for personal and professional income.
In some cases, the tax authorities and banks have opened inquiries due to a mismatch between an individual’s declared incomes and actual account activity. However, later realizing that most of these account holders are small business owners using savings accounts for their professional use. So, if you are a small business owner who is yet to segregate his/her personal and professional incomes, the time to do so is quite at hand. Also, there are several other benefits of having a business bank account than simply the convenience of avoiding unnecessary legal scrutiny.
One such advantage is having access to quick finance. SMEs in India can use a current account facility for business transactions. These accounts do not generate any interest but do give selective access to working capital finance, albeit with a catch. An business has to pledge an asset as collateral before the funds are credited to its current account. So, in most cases where an SME does not have the assets to secure a working capital loan from a bank, the owner ends up using a personal account for professional use, because there is no perceived need for him to get a current account.
However, the advent of Fintech firms like Lendingkart has changed that perception by offering unsecured business loans for small and medium businesses. Business owners can now have both a current account and an access to working capital finance without pledging company assets. Plus, these loans are offered at relaxed terms and with easy repayment schedules to ease the financial burden on SME owners.
Given this change, the banks too have adapted their current accounts divisions by creating sub-categories that cater to specific business needs. Here are some of the things that are made simpler with a business account for your SME.
