There are several benefits from opening and maintaining a business checking account rather than using your personal checking account. When you use a business checking account you are segregating your business funds from your personal funds, thus creating better organization for your business. Also, having the business checking account will help at tax time because all your business transactions will be within the business checking account and there will be no need to sort through your personal transactions. Finally, the business checking account will allow you to use a taxpayer identification number (TIN) so the funds can legally be owned by your business, instead of using your social security number on the checking account. For a small business, opening a business checking account allows you to get more interests. In addition, transactions are processed faster compared to a personal account.
