Bank Independent offers two options for depositing checks into your business account without making a trip to the branch.
Remote Deposit Capture from your desktop is perfect for businesses depositing more than 25 checks a month.
Remote Deposit Capture provides:
- Simplicity. An easy-to-follow program lets you scan checks through a telephone-sized check scanner. It reads each check, creates a stored image, and prepares a deposit ticket. Simply confirm the amount of each check and deposit totals, then transmit the information through a secure connection.
- Reporting. Enjoy easy access to online deposit reports.
- Funds Availability. Deposits made by 8:00 p.m. Monday through Friday are credited the same day.
- Efficiency. Eliminating trips to the bank translates into more time for you and your employees.
Mobile Deposit for Business lets you use your Mobile Banking app to deposit up to 25 business checks per month using your mobile device at no charge.

Protect your business accounts from unauthorized check transactions (such as counterfeit or altered checks) with Bank Independent's powerful Positive Pay service.
Here's how Positive Pay works:
- You upload to Online Banking a file listing information about checks written from your Bank Independent business checking account.
- When checks are presented for payment, we compare them to the information you've submitted.
- If the information doesn't match, we do not complete the transaction and notify you via text or email.
Positive Pay gives you more control and peace of mind over the security of your account than ever before.
Automated scheduled or triggered transfers from one Bank Independent account to another can help your business maintain minimum account balances, avoid overdrafts or ensure your various operating accounts are appropriately organized.
