What is the difference between
business checks and personal checks?
Business checks are used solely for your business. Business checks come in two categories: Laser business checks (that are paired with your accounting software program) and manual business checks. Personal checks are connected to your personal bank account and can be customized with personalized design options. If you have a business, you should have both business checks and personal checks.
It’s super simple, but here’s your answers:
- If you have a business, you need business checks
- If you don’t have a business, but make payments, you need personal checks
- If you have a business and you make personal payments, you need both business checks and personal checks
- And, read why it’s critical to keep business and personal finances separate in our recent article
There are two primary categories of business checks
- Laser checks: Essential for businesses that have existing accounting software programs (like QuickBooks® or Peachtree/Sage®), laser business checks maximize this investment in a powerful way. These laser business checks automatically track spending, maintain vendor details, and create easy-access records. Not only do they help ensure financial accuracy, but they also save businesses critical time and money that matters most. Checksforless.com® ensures that our laser business checks are 100% compatible with existing software. We also provide custom business checks that fully represent your organization, including your company logo and brand colors.
- Manual checks: Ideal for businesses that need a portable way to keep track of expenses, these manual business checks are convenient and easy to use. Essential for businesses on the go, these business checks come in a variety of styles and options, notably the inclusion of vouchers.
