Current account is a business account in carious forms. It charges COT in various forms according to the bank while savings account is use to save money. It pays interest depending on the type and bank. Savings account cannot be used for loan application, but it can be used by small businesses onwers who don't want to be charged

Savings is for personal use while current is mostly for business.. They both have limits of depositing and withdrawing
With current account, you could get a reasonable loans compared to Savings account

The new generation banks have introduced lots of similarities between the two accounts, making it difficult to spot a difference.

By and large, individuals own savings account while businesses own current/account.

More importantly, opening a current account comes with more headaches because you will be asked to provide references grin

With the advent of e-banking, Online transfer etc, there’s no difference between both type of accounts.
Before, having to issue a check to a third party is an edge that Current account holders had over Savings account. But it’s longer a relevant thing because you can always make a transfer.
Savings account is also valid for issuance of Visa now.
To me , it’s just a status symbol. Nothing much.
I pay far more charges on my current account compares to the savings account.
Aside Corporate Account, I don’t see anything special in issuing a check when you can actually make a transfer.

In layman's explanation



On a norms, current account is created for people who are earning correct money, cause there are some charges that would be deducted from the account type most times and they may qualify for bank overdraft (to withdraw above the limit in their account) and they are also using cheques to drawn on them, but savings account is created for low income earners, it was set up to encourage low income earners to also save or have a bank account, and you can maintain a little amount on savings account compare to current account... And savings account most time are always given some interest amount based on their balance... And cheques are not really drawn on them.

Current account charges account maintenance fee of N1 par mille. It also has stamp duty charge also. It does not pay interest on funds.

Savings account has no charges and interest payable is when you do not exceed more than three withdrawals in a month.
