As your business grows, having your own business checking account is necessary to manage your cash flow and expenses. A checking account gives legitimacy to your business and allows you to easily track expenses, receipts, payments, and other matters relating to the finances of your business.

But for MSMEs (micro, small, and medium enterprises), opening a business checking account can be challenging, especially since most banks in the Philippines offer a business account with minimum balance requirement ranging from Php 25, 000 – Php 100,000. This leads small business owners to use their personal account for business transactions which is not ideal for business growth.

To help MSMEs overcome this challenge, UnionBank of the Philippines has introduced the ‘Biz Starter account’. This is a checking account with only Php 5,000 as an opening balance and minimum balance requirement for micro, small, and medium enterprise owners that can only be availed via UnionBank GlobalLinker! This means that it’s an exclusive offer for UnionBank GlobalLinker members only.

Apart from its low opening balance and minimum balance requirement, you will receive the following with your Biz Starter account:

  • Checkbook
  • Debit Card
  • Access to online banking
  • 24/7 account management through the UnionBank Corporate Facility

Reasons to get a Biz Starter account

  • Access your working capital through checks, debit card (for sole proprietor only), and online banking
  • Check your account balance anywhere through online banking
  • Easily track your business transactions and expenses
  • Manage your cash flow effectively
  • Low opening balance and minimum balance requirement of only Php 5,000
