At a glance, all financial institutions may seem alike, but there are important differences that can make a difference to the success of your business. Look for a financial institution that offers comprehensive services for your business and small business experts who can help you run your business more efficiently. When looking for a bank or credit union for your business accounts, here are a few things to consider:
 
  • Community-based institutions are likely to have extensive knowledge of local market conditions that can affect businesses such as yours.
  • Smaller regional institutions often give business owners personal access to lenders with local decision-making authority. This can mean faster loan approvals.
  • Member-owned institutions such as credit unions are not-for-profit, so they return profits back to members in the form of lower borrowing rates and better savings rates. Such savings can go right to your company's bottom line.
  • For the greatest value to your business, look for an institution that has a dedicated business services team that offers consultation services. Ideally, this advice should be available at no cost to you.
  • Choose an institution that has convenient branch locations if you prefer to do your banking in person, and that has a complete range of online services that allow you to take care of transactions and access your records from anywhere, at any time.
  • Look for an institution that will not only have what you need right now, such as a small business checking account, but also what you may need as your business grows, such as a vehicle loan or commercial real estate loan. Viewing your association with a financial institution as a long-term partnership can help you choose the one that's right for your business.

You can open your account with a $50 deposit and, depending upon what type of business you have—a sole proprietorship, partnership, corporation, or not-for-profit association or organization—you may need to provide information such as:
  • Social Security Numbers for signers on your account
  • Driver's licenses for signers on your account
  • Federal Business Tax ID (EIN)
  • Meeting minutes listing all officers

The business must be registered and active with the State of Florida through Sunbiz.

Credit unions and banks both offer a range of financial services that can meet your business needs, but there's one important distinction: Credit unions are owned by its members. Instead of the executives guiding the institution, as it is at traditional banks, credit unions have an elected board of directors—who are also members of the credit union—that make sure your best interests are served.
 
Credit unions are also non-profit organizations, so their main focus is on providing ways for members to save money instead of on increasing profits. At SCCU, we invest in our membership, offering better rates on loans and valuable rewards that help our members save money. And, for our members' peace of mind and security, the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) insures our account holders' deposits just as the FDIC does for traditional banks.
