In Hong Kong, a professional account is not exactly the same as a business account, though they are related and often used in similar contexts. Here’s how they differ:

  1. Professional Account: This type of account is typically used by individuals who are practicing licensed professions, such as lawyers, doctors, accountants, and architects. These accounts are usually tailored to manage fees, operational expenses, and other financial transactions specific to their profession.
  2. Business Account: A business account is used by companies, businesses, or sole proprietors to manage their business transactions, operational expenses, payroll, and other business-related financial activities. These accounts are broader in scope and are essential for running a business entity efficiently.

While both account types help manage finances and are crucial for separating personal and professional/business finances, professional accounts are specifically designed to meet the regulatory and financial needs of individual professionals, whereas business accounts are suited for a wider range of business activities.
