Business Banking Services
Like every business, accountants and their firms need to manage their cash flow, accept payments, and disburse funds. Compare Wells Fargo's business checking accounts and savings accounts side-by-side.
Wells Fargo Business Online® enables access to your business and/or personal with accounts, single sign-on, from any internet connection. Manage your accounts including transferring funds, making payments and viewing images all in one place. In addition, your clients can give you access to manage their accounts (if you are an authorized signer) or just view them so that you can see check images, statements and account activity easing reconciliation.
With Merchant Services you can accept credit and debit cards for client payment. Easy to set up and easy to manage, Wells Fargo Merchant Accounts facilitate payments online, face-to-face or via the phone/fax.
If you offer payroll services, consider how effective our online Direct Pay service would be. You can make net payroll and expense reimbursement deposits directly to your own and your clients' employee accounts. Multiple clients can be accessed with a single sign-on.
