Zero Balance for Multiple Accounts
We can maintain your "sub" accounts at a zero balance to help with cash flow needs.
If you have multiple accounts used for different purposes and want the balance of your funds in one operational account, we can electronically help you maintain the "sub" accounts at a zero balance. When funds are needed they are "pulled" or moved from the concentration account and when the sub accounts have a balance, they are moved to the concentration account. With this service, no funds sit idle in your account in anticipation of checks clearing. Excess funds are thus available to invest, or to cover credit or cash flow needs.
