What is the best bank account for freelancers?
Read in 5 minutes
If you want to start your own business as a freelancer or self-employed professional in Germany, one of the first decisions will be about your bank account.
Although you don’t have to have a separate business bank account as a freelancer, it’s not advisable to use your private bank account for your business activities. In addition, many banks exclude the business use of a private account, which could lead to a termination of the account in the worst case.
An advantage of a business bank account is, that having a second account gives you a much better overview of your business income and expenses. A business account also offers additional functions that a private account does not have. The separation between private and business expenses also makes it easier for you to prepare your tax returns. So, get searching, get set, get going!
