ZERO BALANCE ACCOUNT                                       

Put excess funds to work with our Zero Balance Account

Zero Balance Accounts (ZBAs) are designed to help eliminate manual transfers of funds between accounts, reduce idle cash and prevent overdrafts. At the end of each business day, funds are automatically transferred from the master account of a business into its ZBA account(s) in the exact amount(s) needed to cover disbursements. ZBAs simplify funds transfer activity and help maintain account autonomy. They're especially useful for funding multiple disbursement accounts on an "as needed" basis.

ZBAs may also be used to automatically move deposits from one or more depository accounts into a related master account. This allows consolidation of all of the bank balances of a business and creation of one pool of funds from which to determine the daily cash position and optimize investments.

  • Improve cash flow by eliminating idle balances
  • Maintain control of multiple accounts by funding them through a single, centralized account
  • Eliminate time spent on manually funding subsidiary accounts
  • Save clerical time and expenses
  • Maximize funds available for investment and minimize risk of overdraft fees
  • Excess funds in the central operating account can be invested to increase returns and maintain liquidity
