Commercial Checking

Whether you have a startup or an established business, you need a convenient, flexible checking account. We offer both interest bearing and noninterest bearing commercial checking accounts. Both versions have unlimited check writing and transactions, no annual fees, and free Debit MasterCard®.

Our interest bearing account requires a minimum of $500 to open and must be maintained at this amount to avoid a $5 fee. Startups may want an alterative where the minimum to open is much lower, $100, with no requirements to maintain a minimum balance. Comparisons are as follows:

 Minimum to openMinimum to earn interestMinimum daily balance to avoid $5 fee
Interest bearing$500*$500$500
Non-interest bearing$100N/AN/A

*Compounded monthly and credited monthly
