Open a business account
We're here to help you choose the best account for your business. Start your online application today.
Our business accounts
We have a range of accounts for different financial needs, whether you run a sole proprietorship or a large corporation. Find the one that best suits your needs.
To save on monthly fees, open a Business Chequing Account with a transaction plan. If you want a chequing account that earns some interest, go with the Build-Up Savings Account, available in Canadian or US dollars.
Grow your business's extra cash for no monthly fee with the Enhanced Investment Business Account, or enjoy a very competitive interest rate with the Desjardins Business Treasury Account.
Benefits of a business account
Opening an account for your business lets you keep your personal and professional finances separate. It will help you manage your business's cash flow, build a credit history and prepare for tax season. You can also authorize another signatory on your account, if necessary.
How to open a business account
1. Fill out the online application
To open a business account, you'll need to provide certain information about you and your business. Make sure to have on hand your business number (NEQ or BN) and Quebec sales tax (QST) registration number, if applicable.
2. Choose an account
In some cases, you'll be able to open an account by yourself online (for example, if you already have an account with us). If not, we'll call you to finish your application and open the account. If you have any questions or can't find the account you want, contact us.
3. Enjoy the advantages of your new account
