Can you cash business checks?
Typically cashing business checks is more difficult than cashing personal checks. How to cash a business check depends on the structure of your business and if the bank allows it. If your bank doesn't allow cashing business checks, first deposit the business check and then make a withdrawal for the same amount from the account.
While you may be looking for tips on how to cash a business check, we’re going to take you back a couple steps to illustrate why cashing business checks may be a little tricky.
Cashing personal checks is straightforward. If someone writes out a personal check to you in your name, and you’ve made the proper endorsements, and/or have your personal identification, it should be easy to cash this personal check.
Cashing business checks is different.
While some payroll business checks may be easier to cash, how to cash a business check depends on some variables.
If the check has been made out to your business rather than to you as the business owner, it may be harder to cash this business check. And, not all banks allow you to cash business checks made out to your business.
However, if you have a checking account with your bank, you may be able to cash business checks, but it likely depends on your business structure.
- If you're a sole proprietor, you’ll be the only person who can cash business checks if the bank allows it.
- If your business is a partnership, limited liability company, or corporation, anyone who is a signatory on the business checking account can cash business checks if the bank allows it.
It’s important to note that how to cash a business check is also dependent on proper endorsement.
If your bank doesn't allow cashing business checks, first deposit the business check and then make a withdrawal for the same amount from the account.
