Our Review

The St.George Business Cheque account is a great way to manage your business finances by making business banking much easier to manage. The big advantage of this account is it lets you do your banking in your own way.

Some businesses do not need online banking and prefer to use their bank account to issue cheques and have branch access. Many Australian banks seem to be going down the online road instead and cutting down their branches Fortunately St.George has an extensive branch network and continues to stress the importance of serving its customers in person.

This business transaction account is completely fee free for business that maintains the minimum daily balance and also allows for a number of free branch transactions and cheque deposits.

Business customers can also apply for a linked credit card and add as many as three holders that St. George will waive the annual fee for.

The account lets holders establish and EFTPOS terminal completely free of charge, so retail businesses that want the flexibility of allowing their customers to pay by card can take care of that option. Other benefits of the account include reduced premiums for business insurance and the ability to apply for an overdraft facility which can be used to manage cash flow and avoid overdrawn or dishonor fees.

All in all this is a decent transaction account for business that want flexibility in the way they manage their cash and place a lot of value in cheque issuance and branch banking.
