Avoid This Invoice Trap
If you have a name for your business, it’s tempting to invoice clients with that business name. But if your clients write checks payable to the name of your business … and you haven’t yet set your business up properly … you may be in for some hassle.
With the increased post-911 security concerning financial transactions, many banks won’t let you deposit checks made payable to a business entity into your personal account. Instead, you must deposit them into a business account.
Establishing a business account isn’t difficult, but it can require having a legally established name registered in your county. This process could delay your access to checks made in the name of your business for up to a month.
