About This Episode

Wondering if you need a separate bank account as a DBA?  As a sole proprietor? As a solopreneur?

When you start a business, there are a lot of things to do.  It’s really easy to be unsure of yourself. What do you NEED to do right now?  What can you save for later? 

In this episode, I answer the question “Do I really need a separate bank account for my new business?”  

The answer should be no surprise…in addition to answering the query, I give you accounting, tax and just practical reasons to back up my answer, I go into quite a bit of detail behind WHY you should absolutely have a separate bank account for your solo-business.   

Mentioned in this episode: 

  • The various reasons supporting my answer – from the practical, to the accounting based, to the IRS-audit based reasons
  • A quick tip – the first place you should look to open a business bank account
