For investing and stuff. Not fun for spending and seeing you way over
paid.... Even if its labor vs goods. Who likes over paying?

That is also true on like merchant processing and credit card fees.
Relationship and volume can get lower fees.

Are you transferring within the same bank, HSBC always or to other
banks? That maybe something many banks do within their own systems.

They seem to have a free business checking account, but page is MIA

The question there is;

Would HSBC allow say a US Bank account to be opened with people on file
that are not US citizens?

That was the biggest issue for Gentoo. Why Capital One was the ONLY
bank that would work for that odd criteria. This was 2008, and post 911
era. Things maybe different with other banks now. International banking
is becoming more and more common every year.

I always say if someone wants to give you money. Never tell them in
what form, just say thank you and take the money!!! Thus all options
should be available for money coming in.
