An business account is meant to be a way for a private person to operate as an entrepreneur in a bureaucracy-free and affordable manner, without worrying about financial statements, monthly tax declarations, and the payment of taxes – all of this takes place automatically under business account entries. A business account is the best choice when one private person pays another private person for services or goods that they have provided, and for fulfilling the tax obligation arising from the income received. An individual that has opened an business account is under no obligation to register as an entrepreneur or to keep a statement of revenue and expenditure. When using a business account, you may not be a person liable to value added tax or operating as a self-employed person (FIE) in the same or similar area of activity. Source: LHV
