How Many Bank Accounts Does Your Business Need

Many business owners only have one bank account for their company. While this may suffice, it would be a prudent idea for an entrepreneur to have multiple accounts. With more than one account, a business owner can enjoy a few benefits. Of course, most people do not know how many they should have. In reality, it will be up to a business owner to determine their wants and needs. Here is a quick guide for an entrepreneur to decide how many accounts he or she needs.

Size: A small company with one or two employees does not need much in the way of financial products. On the other hand, a large corporation with multiple offices and dozens of employees will need to spread their money across a few financial institutions. This is especially true when the organization many has multiple credit card processing and merchant accounts.

Products: As mentioned, some companies have multiple merchant accounts. Others may only accept checks and cash. When the company engages in credit card processing, it would be wise to have a bank account to accept payments. This will make it easier on accountants who want to look at the numbers and determine, with ease, how profitable a product or service is to the business.

Access: Often, a company will need access their money without trouble. To do this, some companies opt to open up a bank account at three or four local branches. When doing so, the business owner and supervisors can go to the bank and make simple financial transactions with ease. Remember, a well-run company should have easy access to their funds should they need to make an investment or pay a contractor.

Amount: Now, some new companies do not have a lot of cash in the bank. When a person only keeps a minimal amount of cash in the bank, he or she can keep one or two accounts. On the other hand, a large and well established company with plenty of reserves should have multiple accounts. Remember, there are FDIC limits and one must stash money in multiple places to protect their money adequately.

Most business owners do not put much thought into this process. Luckily, when spending some time to think about the situation, one can have the best bank accounts for their business. Remember, there is not one size fits all solution for the banking needs of a company.



It took me a while to decide who I wanted to settle with to handle all of my credit card transactions because every company wants to make it sound like they're offering you the best rates. was able compare and beat all of the other offers I received. They were also able to provide me the fairest price on my EMV-compliant terminal. My sales representative and the support team were there to assist every step of the way. Ultimately, I'm looking forward to a long term relationship with this company.

The service was very professional, my sales person (Steven B.) was very well versed in the product and most helpful in getting our company set up to accept credit cards via my cell phone. Their rates are some of the lowest on the market and their service is unparalleled. I will recommend them to anyone requiring a credit card processing service.

I called indecisive about getting a device, but speaking to your Sales Consultant completely settled me. He was very professional, knowledgeable and patiently walked me through the process. He always responded to my voicemails and answered all my questions. After I received my merchandise, he called following up to ensure that I had received it. Customer service I would say is 5 stars. Stellar! Thanks Credit Card Processing, I will definitely recommend you.
