The Power of Virtual Accounts

Why are virtual accounts one of the top innovative products in banking?

Virtual Accounts allow for sub-ledger reporting of transaction data, while the settlement of your funds naturally concentrate into your physical bank account.

Virtual Accounts provide a solution to reduce the number of managed physical accounts, while respecting the detailed transaction and balance information needed for reconciliation.

Any number of Virtual accounts can be associated to your physical bank account, and you assign the purpose for each Virtual Account.

A virtual account structure supports both receivable and payable payment types and allows the company to self-allocate virtual accounts and define required reporting. HSBC’s Virtual Account solution can deliver cost savings, account security, reduce manual processes and streamline reconciliation.
