Last week that I had to get on the phone with my bank about my business account to get something straightened out.
I was sent a payment from a client and was charged a fee (it was a small payment so the fee came out to be around 20%).
I was able to get it waived this time thankfully. However, my bank is moving in the direction of more fees, so I fear I may have to be doing this more in the future if I don't make a change.
I've decided to start looking around at some possible alternatives and for now I've opened a business savings account at ING Direct.
If you have a small business, which bank do you use for your accounts?
Couple Money Around the Web
Besides writing here on Couple Money I contribute at other sites as well. This week was relatively quiet, which gave me a chance to catch up on some other work I had been slowly chipping away at:
- Green Panda Treehouse: Did You Invest in Facebook? (Should You?)-> With all the hype around the IPO and how it went, I thought it fun to discuss how someone can decide if they should buy stock by analyzing their goals and motivations.
- My Financial Reviews: The $100 StartUp – Can You Do It?-> I review Chris Guillbeau's new book released this month and I also cover some examples of those who have created businesses with just a little bit of capital.
