Checking, NOW and IOLTA Accounts

A variety of solutions to manage your finances conveniently and cost-effectively.

At SunTrust we offer a wide range of commercial checking and NOW accounts to serve the unique needs of business, government and nonprofit clients. All our accounts are designed to help you manage your organization’s finances as conveniently and cost-effectively as possible.

Commercial Checking Accounts

  • Analyzed Business Checking: For businesses with moderate to high transaction activity that need cash management services or want to consolidate multiple accounts. Using account analysis to calculate monthly deposit and treasury management charges helps reduce costs, improve cash flow and simplify accounting with detailed monthly statements to easily track account activity. Analyzed Business Checking offers our highest earnings credit rate.1
  • Analyzed Interest Checking: Best for businesses with moderate to high transaction activity, complex cash management needs and high balance levels in checking accounts. Like Analyzed Business Checking, balances maintained in Analyzed Interest Checking earn an earnings credit allowance1 that can help reduce or eliminate service charges. If balances maintained in the account exceed what is needed to offset service charges, interest is earned on those excess balances.2

NOW (Negotiable Order of Withdrawal) Accounts

  • Municipal NOW: For state and local governments, agencies and school districts, this transaction account offers an alternative to a sweep account. With an interest-bearing transaction account designed to meet cash management needs, it also effectively functions as an around-the-clock cash manager.
  • Public Funds Advantage NOW: For state and local governments, agencies and school districts, this transaction account helps improve earnings on available funds, and provide the benefits of an Analyzed Business Checking Account.

SunTrust IOLTA Accounts

Law firms can use a SunTrust IOLTA (Interest on Lawyers Trust Account) to place nominal or short-term client funds into a pooled account that earns interest used to benefit public service programs approved by the state bar. We manage distribution of interest and provide automatic proof of payment as well as receipts for business records and tax reporting.

Escrow Solutions

Escrow Solutions: Tailored escrow solutions can help clients better manage risk associated with a broad range of business transactions.

DISCLAIMERS

1 At the end of each month, SunTrust sets an Earnings Credit Rate (ECR). Using the SunTrust ECR, we calculate the value of earnings credit on the balances (sometimes referred to as value of balances) in your account and apply that value against service activity expenses. The ECR used for the analysis period is always displayed on the account analysis statement. SunTrust uses the following calculation to derive the value of Earnings Credit on available balance: Average Available Balance x ECR ÷ days in the year x days in the month = Earnings Credit on Average Available Balance. Average Available Balance is calculated by subtracting related reserves, if applicable, from the average positive collected balance.

2 To determine the amount of excess balances, the following calculation is used: Average Available Balances - Balances Required to Offset Service Charges = Excess Balances. If you are in a negative net analysis position, the value of excess balances will equal zero to indicate that there are not sufficient balance levels maintained in the account to earn interest. The following calculation is used to derive the balance level required to offset all service charges: Service charges ÷ Earnings Credit Rate x days in year ÷ days in month = Balances Required to Offset Service Charges.
