FNB Platinum Business Account Review 2022

The FNB Platinum Business Account, an upgrade from the FNB Gold Business Account, is better suited to long-term firms. The account provides first-rate transactional and banking services. The account includes a number of non-banking privileges, such as access to SLOW lounges and wealth management services. When you link your petrol card to your FNB Platinum Business Account, you will receive free roadside assistance in the event of an emergency.

The Platinum Business Account has access to instant accounting software, which allows firms to record transactions as they occur. This is due to the fact that every transaction made on the Platinum Business Account is recorded in the affected accounts. The account gives you access to specialized banking services. This is due to the fact that the account is designed to meet the financial demands of practically any industry.

Any business in South Africa that operates in any industry can open this account, as particular changes will be made on this account for that business. The Platinum check account includes an overdraft option that allows your company to access cash when there is none in the Platinum cheque account. An overdraft facility is beneficial in several ways, the most essential of which is that it allows you to satisfy your business’s short-term obligations when there is no cash in the bank account.

The overdraft facility, on the other hand, comes with a cost. Furthermore, the amount of overdraft that your business can utilize is determined by the amount of overdraft that your firm qualifies for. Your company will need to apply for an overdraft facility.
