As you explore the various options for opening a Current Account for your business, you must look beyond the basic features and discover the ones that can enhance your banking experience. Let's explore some lesser-known features of Current Accounts so you can aptly choose a Current Account best suited for your business needs.

  • ActivMoney

One of the unique features of the Kotak ActivMoney Current Account is the ActivMoney facility which allows you to earn FD-like interest of up to 7%* p.a. on the idle funds in your Current Account. How does it work? When your balance exceeds a predetermined threshold, the surplus amount is automatically transferred into a Fixed Deposit (FD). This way, you can maximise the returns on your unutilised funds. The best part is penalty-free premature withdrawal from the linked Fixed Deposit. This means that you can access the full amount without incurring any penalty charges in case of an urgent need for funds.

  • Combined balance for transactions

With the ActivMoney Current Account, you enjoy the convenience of a combined balance for all your transactions. This balance comprises the amounts in your Current Account and the linked Fixed Deposit. As a result, you can access a more substantial available balance for various business financial activities, giving you greater flexibility and control over your finances.

  • Seamless online account opening

Opening a Current Account with Kotak has never been easier. With a user-friendly online account opening process, you can complete all necessary formalities from the comfort of your home or office. Save time and effort by submitting your details and required documents online and enjoy a hassle-free account opening experience.

  • Access to instant funds

With the Overdraft Facility, you can withdraw funds beyond the available balance in your Current Account up to a pre-approved credit limit. This means that during urgent financial needs or when there is a temporary shortfall in funds, you can access instant cash without delay, helping you to deal with business challenges effectively.

  • Customisable Current Account requirements

The ActivMoney Current Account lets you personalise your banking experience by allowing you to choose from a range of solutions. Depending on your business needs, you can choose from low transaction fees, higher withdrawal limits, and other specific features.
