How to Find the Perfect Bank for Your Small Business


It can be challenging and frustrating to find the perfect bank and suitable account for
your small business. It’s an important decision that requires time and attention. You
certainly want to avoid a bank that charges you an arm and a leg in fees. Simplify your
life by finding a great bank for your business.

Follow these tips to find a bank that suits your small business needs:

1. Get online. You can find out more online in a few minutes than in a few hours
driving around to different banks. Make an initial list of banks to check out
further. Before long, you’ll have a list of fitting candidates.




2. Realize that all banks are different. Many people erroneously believe all banks
are the same. Although the banking industry is one of the most heavily
regulated, there is still enough wiggle room for differences to emerge.

Banks are free to create their own policies around account minimums,
interest rates, fees, extra charges, services provided, and loan
qualification criteria.

Ensure you’re choosing a bank with the services you require minus the
exorbitant fees.





3. Know the requirements of your business. Consider all the services you want
your bank to provide for you and your business. Will you be taking out a loan or
are you just looking for a place to stash your cash? What is your monthly cash
flow?

Can your bank of choice meet those requirements? It might be worthwhile
to make a list of your requirements and see how it meshes with the bank’s
offerings.

Consider the types of accounts, deposit frequency, credit cards, wire
transfers, loan availability, minimum balance requirements, payroll
services, and any other services you’re interested in.






4. Watch the fees! Fees are interesting. They don’t seem significant until you add
up how much they are costing you over time. Always keep the fees in mind.
In the long run, the difference between 2% vs. 1% can be costly.

You might find that one bank provides free wire transfers and another
charges $15. Also, investigate whether or not a bank charges ATM fees.

5. Hit the road. Drive around and check out all the banks meeting your
requirements. Stop in and ask to speak to an account manager. Let them know
what you’re looking for and they’ll tell you all about their accounts and services.

6. How well do you like the bank and the employees? The customer service
department and the compatibility you feel with the people in your branch can
make a huge difference. A good relationship with those at your bank is
important.

While you might be inclined to work with a large bank, you might want to
give the smaller, local banks a look.

Ask other small business owners about their experiences with banks.





7. Never totally stop shopping for a bank. Even after you find a bank, occasionally
look around and see what other banks are now offering. Your new bank might
be the best one for you at this moment, but maybe not in 9 months.

Finding a great bank is an important part of your business success. Take the time to
do your research. Figure out what you’re looking for and go visit the banks that meet
your criteria. No one enjoys shopping for banks, but the success of your business
demands it. A supportive and reliable bank makes life so much easier.
