How to open

You can open an account online if you're a sole trader or director of a private company (Pty Ltd). If your business is already with CommBank, this won't take long. 

This account will be set up as any-to-sign, which means any director you set up with us will be able to operate it. You can change this by going to a branch once it’s set up.

Otherwise, open your account at a branch with a small business specialist.

Bank fees and charges may apply. 

1 You can only open an account online if you're a new or existing customer who is either a sole trader or director of a private company (Pty Ltd). You'll need to set up your business with us so we can verify your business details with ASIC. Once your beneficial owners and nominated directors have verified their ID (we'll email them instructions to do this online), you'll be able to open and start using your account. You'll be providing information to us on behalf of directors and owners in accordance with our Privacy Policy - make sure you've got their permission to do so before you start.

4We understand that from time to time, your account may become  overdrawn as a result of a direct debit or cheque payment being processed. The Bank may honour this payment by making funds temporarily available for eligible customers via our overdraw feature. For more information about this feature as well as how to turn it on or off, please view What happens when you overdraw your business account?

The overdraw feature is offered at the Bank’s discretion. The account may also become overdrawn if a merchant completes an offline or unauthorised payment.

A beneficial owner is an individual who owns 25% of the company; but if no-one does, controls 25% of the company; but if no-one does, exercises control by way of making key financial or operational decisions, like a CEO. We'll get you to confirm their details so we can email them instructions to do this. Once they've completed this, you'll be able to open and start using your account.
