Benefits of a business account

Opening an account for your business lets you keep your personal and professional finances separate. It will help you manage your business's cash flow, build a credit history and prepare for tax season. You can also authorize another signatory on your account, if necessary.

How to open a business account

1. Fill out the online appli­cation 

To open a business account, you'll need to provide certain information about you and your business. Make sure to have on hand your business number (NEQ or BN) and Quebec sales tax (QST) registration number, if applicable.

2. Choose an account

In some cases, you'll be able to open an account by yourself online (for example, if you already have an account with us). If not, we'll call you to finish your application and open the account. If you have any questions or can't find the account you want, contact us.

What is the difference between a personal account and a business account?

A personal account is taken out in your name. It allows you to manage your personal day-to-day finances or save for the future.

A business account is taken out in your business's name. It has virtually the same features as a personal account, but also keeps your business transactions and cash flows in one place and simplifies your accounting.

Are business accounts free?

It's free to open an account, but fees may apply depending on the plan you choose and the transactions you make. We'll work with you to find the best option for your business.
