How To Open A Business Bank Account

It’s all too easy to use your personal bank account to pay for business expenses, rather do it right the first time. Let customers pay invoices directly into your business account. Get the right advice from a banker, at the bank of your choice to ensure you operate as a credible business. Making use of online payment gateway is also an effective way for customers to pay you online for services or products you offer.

 

The Steps Below Can Guide You When Opening A Business Bank Account:

Step 1: Choose A Business Account

Most banks offer two types of business accounts – savings and checking. A business savings account may be best for you if you have less withdrawals and want to set aside earnings for future business expansion or annual tax payment. On the other hand, a business checking account will allow you to write checks and make numerous withdrawals for your everyday business transactions (e.g. daily expenses, bills payment, etc.).

Step 2: Scout And Select Which Bank Will Handle Your Business Account

Banks offer different product features and benefits that best fit your business. Some of these offer additional or higher interest rates depending on your account’s average daily balance (ADB), lower maintaining balance, and lesser bank fees. It is best to consider banks with online banking facilities to check and monitor your account from time to time. Another thing to consider is the proximity of the bank to your business location.

Step 3: Visit The Bank Of Your Choice

Some banks allow customers to open an account via phone or online. However, this might not be the case if you are a new customer. Banks will require the physical presence of the account holders or business representatives for new accounts. Physical appearance will help you establish a relationship with the bank and open your account immediately.

Step 4: Submit Bank’s Needed Documents

For the bank to open your account, there are some basic documents that you need to present.

Basic Requirements:

To develop the best possible print marketing collateral:

  1. Photo ID of nominated signatory
  2. Identification documents of the signatory (e.g. SSN, TIN or Driver’s License)
  3. Business registration papers
    • Owner’s Business Permit (Sole proprietorship)
    • Partnership Agreement (Partnership)
    • Articles of Incorporation (Corporation)
  4. For corporations, a board resolution is required authorizing the bank to open the account.

Step 5: Make Your Initial Deposit

An initial deposit is required by the bank upon opening an account to make it active. The amount may vary depending on the bank but you can deposit the minimum initial amount or higher.
