      Business Checking Account FAQs

      What is an Earnings Credit?

      Earnings credit is calculated monthly using an investable balance. This credit is then used to offset any fees for services utilized such as ACH, Remote Deposit Capture, and more! Investable balance is determined by using the averaged collected balance minus a reserve of 10%.

      What are uncollected funds?

      Uncollected funds are deposited proceeds that are credited to your account but the bank has yet to receive them from the paying bank. The funds are considered collected based on a standard float table which determines the amount of time funds take to receive using the location of the payee bank or type of item deposited. If you average collected balance is negative for the statement cycle a fee will be assessed that is equal to New York Prime plus 5%.

      Can I deposit personal checks into a business account?

      It is considered best practice to keep business and personal funds separate. This separation ensures your personal assets are protected in the event the business faces financial hardship. All checks should be endorsed with the business name or a stamp with the business information.

      Is it best to establish my business as a Sole Proprietor/Doing Business as (DBA), LLC, or Corporation?

      This often depends on the type of business and how many parties are involved. It is best to consult a tax advisor to determine the best entity type. Establishing an LLC or Corporation over a sole proprietorship can protect your personal assets if the business suffers a loss.

       

      ENTITY TYPE LIABILITY TAXATION MAINTENANCE
      Limited Liability Corporation Pass-through tax structure combined with limited liability protection.

      Based on IRS rules, LLCs can choose between being taxed as partnership or corporation.

      The least amount of formal annual requirements and easiest entity to maintain.
      Corporation Owners & shareholders have limited personal liability for business related debts. Separate taxable entity, corporate profits among owners and corporation. Stock may be sold to raise capital and to maintain corporate status, meetings are required.
      Non-Profit Corporation A corporation formed for a charitable, educational, religious, literary, or scientific purpose. Contributions to charitable corporation are tax deductible. Can get tax exempt status with the IRS. Annual reports, minutes, meetings are required to maintain nonprofit & tax exempt status.
      S Corporation An S Corporation is a tax status, so any existing liability protections from you base entity carry over. Potential tax savings are available, but S Corporation is more expensive to create than a partnership or sole proprietorship. Similar advantages to a limited liability company, but there are more formality requirements.
