FAQs about business banking

What if I don’t like the best bank in my state?

Don’t like the banks available in your state? No problem. You’ve got a couple other options.

You can always go with one of the best online banks for small business. Since these banks are pretty much entirely online—which means you do all your banking via their web sites or mobile banking apps—it doesn’t really matter what state your business is located in.

If you still want that in-person touch, consider opening a business bank account at a local credit union. Many credit unions offer small-business banking these days, and they often have better deals—not to mention better reputations—than the big banks do.

Or, you know, you can just choose one of the other big banks in your state.

What other banks are available in my state?

Good question. If you want to see more of the business banking options in your area, check out our list of banks in your state.

Do I have to have a business bank account?

Yes, you really need a business bank account. It makes your business more legitimate, limits your liability, and simplifies your financials. We explain all that in more detail in “Do You Need a Business Account?

The takeaway

Depending on your state, you may not always be able to get the best bank for business out there—but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get the best one around. With our list of the best banks in each state, you can make sure you’re taking your business to the right place.

The bank you choose matters, but it’s not the only thing that does. Make sure you’re getting the right kind of bank account with our guide to the types of business bank accounts.
