Business & Commercial BankingCustomized Business Checking, Savings and More
Taking care of your business needs with a full suite of banking services
We’re a local business too, so we get it. Whatever your size, we can help you find the right mix of banking services to fit your needs—all with the personalized service and attention of a member-owned credit union. Need dedicated savings accounts for different funds? We can do that. You can pay your vendors online and make deposits remotely. We have two types of checking accounts, so you won’t pay for features you don’t need. We even have services tailored to the needs of specific local businesses like yours.
Ready to apply? To get started, use our easy online application portal, call us at 800.296.4644, or email us at email@example.com.
If you’d prefer to apply in person, you can download our business application here. Then print it out and bring it to your local branch.
Most businesses need a checking account – but not every business needs the same type of account. Choose between our Free Business Checking account or our BusinessPlus Checking account. Both include a Business Visa debit card, 24/7 live support, online banking, unlimited check writing and free notary services.
Our Business Share Savings account has no fees and pays competitive dividend rates. And with a Business Secondary Savings account, you can manage different funds separately. Both accounts offer convenient online banking and remote deposits.
For even better dividend rates and the same access to funds, consider a Business Money Market account. Or if you don’t need immediate access to your funds, earn even more on long-term savings with Service Credit Union certificates.
Business Online Banking and Bill Pay Services
Why pay for stuff you don’t need? We offer three tiers of business online banking and bill pay services which can be tailored to fit your specific needs. You also can make one-time or recurring transfers in foreign currencies to international accounts from your Service Credit Union checking account for a small fee.
Managing your own payroll and HR can be timely, and costly. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Paychex®, a leading provider of HR solutions, to give you an affordable, full-service option for outsourcing these services, and employee benefit administration.
Small/Medium Business Resources
Small businesses are the backbone of our communities and we’re here to provide the payment resources businesses need to make their daily operations easier, and to grow their business. From processing point of sale transactions to invoicing and collecting payments, Service Credit Union and our partners have you covered.
