Business Checking Considerations

You're ready to tackle the challenges and reap the rewards of owning a business. Now, do you have the business checking account that’s right for your business? The size of your business and the amount of checking transactions you conduct are just a few factors you’ll want to consider when choosing a business checking account.

If you’re researching the marketplace for a business checking account, there are other considerations that may help you choose the right account. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

Cost – Make sure to read the fine print before deciding on a business checking account. While you may find one that claims to be “free” you might get stuck paying maintenance or transaction charges.

FDIC-Insured – Make sure your bank is FDIC-Insured. This will work to your advantage if the bank goes under.

Amenities - Some banks offer a number of amenities with their business checking accounts such as getting help with a business loan, merchant credit card processing, and Online Banking and Bill Pay. Make sure you select the account that offers services that can help you reach your business goals.
