    Just opened a business account
    Thought i better as i am having a fair bit of cash flow through the bank now
    Anyone use their normal account long term for work?
    I know a few people lately who have been told off by their bank for using their personal accounts for work

    My PayPal is pretty much my business account, so apart from a few cheques and the odd transfer they probably don't know otherwise.

    PayPal cottoned on quick and hassled me within a month of starting up window cleaning, telling me I had to switch to a business account with them.

    I still have to confirm my identity over the phone to start the account and am trying to decide whether it is worth it
    Free for 18 months but it is another thing to have to manage and mess about with

    Me and the wife have had 3 joint accounts there since i was 21 (40 now) and she's had an account there since she was at school
    I entered our account details and they came back with just phone telephone banking and log in like normal and that will prove it's me
