Business Checking Accounts
STAR First Business Account
STAR is proud to offer businesses an account specifically designed to meet low to moderate volume checking needs. The STAR First Business checking account is available to all commercial, sole proprietor and not-for-profit organizations.
Your STAR First Business account gives you the ability to originate payroll/direct deposit and other ACH transactions through STAR online banking. Additionally, if you are looking for a short-term investment option, you can choose to have the excess funds in your STAR First Business account swept into our Business Investment Sweep account.
This account is designed for the commercial customer who uses a larger volume of bank services. If you write a large number of checks or make a substantial number of deposits, a commercial checking account may be right for you. All commercial checking accounts receive a special earnings credit to offset monthly fees associated with that month's transactions as well as and other Treasury Management services. The earnings credit is calculated on the amount of net investable funds you have on deposit, and is applied to monthly service charges.
