Cash management is critical to small business success. But it can be tough to find a decent business bank account these days. In fact, business-branded accounts have fallen to the bottom of the banking totem pole in many respects. And personal accounts, especially the online-only variety, are now preferable for many small business owners as a result.
Business bank accounts still have their virtues, though. Like business credit cards, business checking and savings accounts usually provide helpful features geared to the needs of companies. Having a business checking account also simplifies tax preparation and affords you certain legal protections, even if you have a personal account, too.
