As you probably already know bunq offers banking services for both personal and business purposes. Opening a business account with us requires all of the directors which are part of it to also have a verified personal account. This can either be an easyTravel, easyMoney or easyGreen personal account. Some of you have asked us for more information on this, so we have prepared this article to give clarity on the topic. 🌈
Why do we create personal accounts for the directors of your business account?
One main reason why we create a personal account together with the business one is to allow for more flexibility for Business with multiple directors. In order to keep everything organised, we automatically create a personal account for each of these directors to keep personal and company data separated and to provide unique login access to each of the directors.
As a bank, we are legally required to store all of our user’s personal information in a secure and protected way. Creating personal accounts for the directors of the business accounts allows us to keep your information and your company’s information safe while complying with this regulation. 🔐✅
On top of that, having a personal account together with your business one comes with more perks, including:
The possibility to get a single overview for all of your banking activities by merging your accounts 💸
Identity protection - Your personal data is safely secured in our system 🎫
If you want to take even more out of your accounts, you can upgrade any of the other Personal plans that we offer. You can find more information about them here.
