What is an International Business Account and Why do businesses need one?
In the devastating impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, local and face-to-face businesses are rapidly lessening, E-commerce and online trading are proven to be the better and safer way to do business in the future. These trends had led to more and more businesses opening online sites and doing business globally. Coming along with it, the need for an international corporate account for a business to operate worldwide is higher than ever.
What is an International Business account?
Business account is not as corporation-centric or corporation-exclusive type of account as the name suggested. It is usually just a general term referring to a international business account for a limited company used to manage their money including transferring, receiving and any payment activities related to their day-to-day operations. And the “international” part of the term “international corporate account” just means those accounts could be used in any country and for overseas transactions as well.
This account is different from a personal account in terms of who is the owner of the account, with a personal account, the owners are persons or individuals but with corporate accounts, the owners are businesses and companies themselves.
Why do businesses need such an account?
With the booming of internet trading sites, and the threats from Covid-19 pandemic, online businesses are starting to replace normal face-to-face trading with its advantage in attracting customers globally while also keeping social distancing and protecting everyone from the pandemic. However, the conversion rate, tax and regulation is still very much a big concern for everyone involved, international corporate accounts allow the business to trade outside of its residing place while also reducing the cost for every transaction by giving businesses a more favourable conversion rate and cutting down the time needed to deal with all the tax and regulation. This is especially true when it comes to businesses which need to trade in various types of currencies.
There are many additional benefits to opening a corporate account, an account created especially for business purposes. It would on one hand reduce the confusion and the time to distinguish between personal finances and your company’s finance for taxing and reporting purposes while on the other hand grant the owner more control over the operation of the company in real-time by being able to track all the transactions related to the business. This would in turn increase the productivity and performance of the business.

Business accounts would also increase the credit ratings with regard to doing business with banks as the credit of this account would have been rated based solely on the performance of the business instead of the owner's payment history.
What are the threats to a corporate account?
Like every aspect of the business, there are certain risks involved in opening a corporate account. One of the most serious threats one business could face is corporate account takeover, which is a type of fraud where the criminal would steal your credential to authorise transfers without your knowledge or to steal information from your business.
