A business bank account is a bank account specifically dedicated to companies. It is comparable to a bank account for private individuals, but usually offers more extensive functions. Nevertheless, the basis of both is making and receiving payments.
A Penta business account includes services tailored to companies such as account software integrations, multiple Business Visa Cards and free monthly transactions, for example. Penta supports your company on the road to success.
We currently offer two options: The “Advanced” plan for €9 per month and the “Premium” plan for €19 per month (both excl. VAT). In our price list, you will find a detailed overview of the included services for each account plan.
Every company registered in Germany. Currently, our corporate account is available for many legal forms such as UG, GmbH, AG, GbR, OHG, PartG, KG, e.K., eG, and Einzelunternehmer (sole proprietor). In addition, companies with the legal forms GmbH and UG in foundation can benefit from our offer.
No. Only companies which are registered in the commercial registry are obliged to keep a business bank account. However, even if your company doesn’t have an entry in the commercial register, a separate business account is highly recommended for every legal form. This way, private and commercial payments can be kept apart and you can maintain a better overview of your company’s finances.
We place high importance on fast and convenient solutions, so the opening of a business bank account with Penta only takes you around 15 minutes. Afterwards, we verify your information and within just a few days, you can benefit from your business bank account.
We are required by law to verify your personal identity. For this purpose we use the video identification of our partner IDnow. After you have provided all the information about you and your company, we will forward you to IDnow in the final step. During a video chat you will be asked to hold your ID document up to the camera of your smartphone or PC and confirm some information. The video identification process takes no longer than 3 minutes.
