a. There are limitations on the number of trasactions that can be performed in a savings account on a per month basis whereas for checking accounts there are no limitations

b. The interest rate offered by banks on savings account is much higher than what is offered on checking accounts because banks offer almost no interest in them

There are several benefits from opening and maintaining a business checking account rather than using your personal checking account. When you use a business checking account you are segregating your business funds from your personal funds, thus creating better organization for your business. Also, having the business checking account will help at tax time because all your business transactions will be within the business checking account and there will be no need to sort through your personal transactions. Finally, the business checking account will allow you to use a taxpayer identification number (TIN) so the funds can legally be owned by your business, instead of using your social security number on the checking account. For a small business, opening a business checking account allows you to get more interests. In addition, transactions are processed faster compared to a personal account.

The secret to saving money is to put more in the account than you withdraw from the account.

Banks will offer checking account deals to lure in new customers. The deals can be anything from better than normal interest rates, bonus amounts in your account or bonus add-ons to your account.

Money deposited on the checking account can be recalled at any time while money deposited on the saving account can be recalled after an agreed on interval or period. This gives the bank the opportunity to plan and re-invest the saved money in short or long term projects.

A checking account is an account where cash can be quickly withdrawn with the use of checks or debit cards. A current account is a financial asset account in accounting in which assets can be easily made liquid or have a turnover period of less than a year.

The purpose of a checking account statement, or any type of account statement for that matter, is to keep track of your account and make sure that no fraudulent activity is happening without your knowledge. Better to be safe than sorry!

This way the money that you put into the bank account will be saved rather than given away.
