Countingup helps you keep your business affairs in order
A business account is just like your personal bank account, but for your company transactions.
Limited companies need a business account by law, but every self-employed person will benefit from getting one. Business banking is not usually free, but account providers like Countingup offer extensive services for affordable prices.
Benefits of a business current account
Simple tax returns
Say goodbye to hours spent separating business and personal transactions. Having a business account makes it easy to keep track of your business activities. You’ll have all transactions in one place to make tax filing a breeze.
Separating business and personal financial activities also helps you claim back your allowable business expenses –– and pay less tax as a result.
Keep records organised
Printed receipts are easy to lose and mix up with personal ones. Using a business account helps you keep track of your receipts and maintain organised records.
The Countingup app automatically categorises your expenses and has a handy receipt capture tool you can use to scan paper receipts into the system. No more digging through shoeboxes or pockets to find a ticket and manually enter the amount into a spreadsheet. Your built-in accounting software does that for you.
Look professional to clients and customers
Simply handing over your personal details for a customer or contractor to pay you can seem suspicious and unprofessional. A business current account overcomes that barrier and makes people perceive you as established and professional.
Monitor your cash flow with ease
Good cash flow management is key to keeping a business in good financial health. Having a separate account for your company transactions makes it easier to monitor your cash flow.
Countingup generates up-to-date and accurate cash flow reports and other business insights. All this information at your fingertips makes it easy to track your business performance and make adjustments as needed.
Save time and money on bookkeeping
As a business owner, you have enough on your plate, and the last thing you need is to spend ages completing mundane bookkeeping tasks. You also don’t need a massive bill from your accountant to figure out which transactions are business-related.
Countingup allows you to get your bookkeeping done quickly and easily. You can also invite your accountant to give them access to your records without delays, duplications, or errors. Problem solved!
