2. Bank Account (option)
Companies can open an account in any bank, but make sure you negotiate good terms for yourself with the bank. You can also use a personal account and S-bank could be great alternative for this, since account can be opened online. Holvi-account is usually sufficient for most NY Start Up -companies.
You can also send invoices to customers, making your company look professional. Here are couple of options.
- Holvi.com has an invoicing system included
- mezo.fi is a free invoice application that works online. (Only in Finnish)
- Use Excel to create an invoice (not recommended).
- Google for free invoice for more ideas. for example: invoicely.com can fit in your company profile well
NY Start Up Companies don’t have Company ID, so you cannot use E-invoices.
Closing the accounts
When you close down your company, remember to also close all your accounts in order not to leave a mess behind.
