Opening Deposit Accounts: Business Accounts

Account opening takes well-trained personnel whose efficiency requires expertise and clear guidelines. This 3-part series focuses on the best methods for opening and maintaining deposit accounts for all your customer contact personnel. The last session in this series will discuss Business Accounts. 

Employees who open deposit accounts face real challenges. This seminar explains the most common forms of organization business customers use: sole proprietorships, corporations and LLCs. Why would customers choose to operate a partnership, rather than a corporation? What’s a limited partnership? Which entities must register with the state? What is the significance of a “DBA” or “assumed name” registration? When do we need a “resolution”? These issues are all addressed. 


While the program’s focal points are documenting existence and authority, it also addresses:

  • Obtaining taxpayer identification numbers and certifications,
  • NOW account eligibility,
  • Disclosures required at account opening,
  • Documenting and fulfilling your bank’s CIP requirements,
  • Verifying the identity of signatories, and
  • Significance and proper completion of resolution.


Personnel who routinely open deposit accounts or supervise, audit or review the process. Content is at the basic or intermediate level. It does not reflect the laws of a particular state.
