Positive Pay helps us monitor and protect your business against potential fraudulent activity. With Positive Pay, clients submit an electronic file of checks issued. We then match this list against items that have been submitted for payment and present any exception items to you for your review and approval. Any checks that are not authorized by you are returned without risk to your business.
At Bank of Southern California, we make sure your money is working for you by establishing automatic sweeps between accounts to cover expenses and minimize unnecessary fees while maximizing interest earned.
- Zero Balance Accounts - Generally used for payroll accounts, money is transferred into the zero balance account only to cover the outgoing payroll checks; thereby maintaining a zero balance and maximizing the funds available in your operating account.
- Excess Balance Sweep – Automatically transfer balances above an established amount from your business checking account into an interest-bearing money market account to maximize your interest earned.
- Overdraft Protection – We ensure your check payments are honored with automatic overdraft protection from available funds in another deposit account or from a line of credit.
