Why does a sole proprietor in Russia need a settlement account?

The sole proprietor does not need to open a settlement account. However, often, especially when a businessman aims to have rapid growth of the company and plans to enter into cooperation with other big companies, the settlement account will be an important element of success.

How Much does the Settlement Account in Russia Cost? 

The purpose of settlement account is to be a convenient tool for running your own business. It is used by sole proprietors for control, as well as by the tax department together with off-budget funds for blocking activities and drawing up the fines.

Criteria for Choosing a Bank to Open a Settlement Account in Russia

What one can do with the settlement account:

  • use non-cash transfers,
  • accept the transfers from other companies and legal entities,
  • pay taxes,
  • pay contributions to funds, etc.

But remember, that it is better not to use this account same way as you use your personal bank account. Otherwise, the tax authority, when verified, may become confused, and make you pay an additional 13 percent of income tax.

If the entrepreneur adds extra online banking service to his account, then he can use it directly from the personal computer.
