With a Business Checking Account, Consider What’s Free – and What Has a Fee

If you’re a small business owner, you probably already know that business checking accounts are different than checking accounts for individuals. So whether you’re looking at opening your first checking account as you get your business started or considering a switch, here are a few things to consider.Blog_BusinessChecking

Features

What kind of features are included with the account? Online and mobile banking with the ability to pay bills, deposit checks, and view e-Statements? What about debit cards?

Fees and Limitations

You’ll also want to think about fees and monthly limits since many financial institutions have fees or limits on the number of items processed per month and the amount of cash deposited each month. Others may have minimum average daily balance requirements to avoid a fee or to earn interest.
