5 reasons to choose Holvi

How does Holvi differ from other traditional business current accounts and services provided for entrepreneurs? How does it help small business owners to spend more time on productive work? Here are five reasons why thousands of entrepreneurs have chosen Holvi.

1. A smarter business current account

Traditional business current accounts only provide entrepreneurs with payment transactions and transaction reports, neither of which do anything to help entrepreneurs actually run their businesses.

Holvi is a smarter business account that lets you collect payments, send and track invoices, and have a real-time overview of your finances, all in one place. With Holvi, your account can easily be connected to payment terminals, such as SumUp. It’s a business account that supports sales across multiple channels.


2. Hassle-free invoicing

Holvi features an invoicing tool that lets you create and send professional invoices easily with just a few clicks. Get payment notifications to your phone and stay on top of your income. Plus, with automatic invoice tracking, you can easily see which invoices have been paid and which are due.

3. Online sales easier than before

Do you have a product or a service that you think would be great for online sales, but lack the money or technical skills to create your own online store? With Holvi, you can set up your very own online store in minutes and start selling everything from textiles to books to course subscriptions.  

The online store is available as soon as you open your account. You can add product categories and customise your store to reflect your brand, including creating special discount codes to boost your sales. Plus, all sales revenue is instantly on your account, so you’ll never have to wait to get paid.

4. Paperless bookkeeping

More than just SEPA transfers, you can make payments or withdraw money anywhere in the world with the Holvi Business Prepaid Mastercard®. The card is fully integrated with the Holvi mobile app – every time you make a purchase with your card, you’ll get a notification on your phone prompting you to save your purchase receipt with your phone’s camera.

The receipt will then be saved to the correct transaction, which will later be placed in the right bookkeeping category. You can do this yourself or give your accountant access to your Holvi account to do it for you.

5. Complete financial management in one service

One of the biggest challenges for entrepreneurs is keeping the books up to date. More often than not, freelancers and small business owners get behind in their bookkeeping.

When you use Holvi, you’ll have a clear overview of your business. You’ll always know exactly how much money you have – how much you’re making, and how much you’re spending.

The Holvi account creates a general ledger and an accounting journal based on the account’s transactions. You’ll also be better aware of your VAT status, as Holvi accumulates your VAT balance automatically.

You don’t need to switch between services because the Holvi business current account combines invoicing, bookkeeping preparation, expense claims, and an online store into one easy-to-use account.

And let’s not forget the Holvi mobile app. Not only do you get a real-time overview of your finances at all times, but you can access it anywhere on your mobile device. Send invoices, make payments and save receipts – on the couch or on the go.
