What is a Corporate Bank Account?

A bank account created in the name of a business and used to receive and manage all company funds. Opening a corporate bank account is a necessary step for any company to do business.

Benefits of Having a Corporate Bank Account

Just to show why you must have one here in Malaysia!


A corporate account helps build trust among shareholders, investors, customers and suppliers. Some parties refuse to do business with a company without a corporate account.



A corporate account keeps the company's funds and assets separate from the business owner's, offering the latter full liability protection of personal assets.



A corporate account provides business owners and directors with a clear snapshot of the company's financial standing, allowing them to plan ahead.



A corporate account allows the company to easily invest any excess funds into bonds, stocks, and other assets. Corporate accounts also come with overdraft facilities to help businesses that need short-term cash injections.
