As a small business, should you open a business account? Yes.

If you’re running a small business, don’t put off opening a small business bank account too long as there’s many benefits to having a separate business account from your personal bank accounts. A small business bank account is a valuable tool.

At FLCBank, our priority is to make running your small business as easy as possible. We believe that managing your finances should be a simple, effortless process.

For this article, we wanted to share some reasons you should open a small business bank account.

  • A small business bank account gives you the ability to see where your business stands when it comes to actual income and expenses versus accounts receivables and payables. You will always know your cash flow with a business account. If you don’t have a separate business account, it will be nearly impossible to determine your cash flow with your personal transactions in the mix.
  • A small business bank account makes it easier for you to keep financial records. You will also be able to show financial documents and statements easier when your business finances are separate from your personal. With clear, easy-to-find financial records, you can manage your books and file your taxes much easier.
  • A small business banking account can protect you from personal liability by maintaining the separation between you (personal) and you (business). If your business is formed as an LLC, corporation, or limited liability partnership, it is seen as a separate entity by law. To continue to protect yourself, you need to treat your business as a separate entity from yourself so the courts will, as well.
  • A small business account allows you to accept checks in your business name, which is easier, more professional, and more reputable.

What type of small business banking account is right for you? It depends on what features you need and how your business works. We have a variety of accounts available to meet the needs of your business. Whether you are just starting out or have more sophisticated needs, we can grow with you as your business grows.
