Step 1: Begin using your new Fulton Bank business checking account
Now that you’ve opened your new account, it’s time to get started on the basics. Online banking access is a great place to begin, and business customers are automatically mailed a User ID mailer and PIN upon opening a new account.
Step 2: Suspend use of your old business account
Keep your old account open and appropriately funded until all outstanding checks have cleared and all of your automatic payments and transactions have switched over to your new Fulton Bank account.
Step 3: Switch your recurring payment activity
Automatic payments (typically ACH transactions) are a convenient way to receive and send funds, and you’ll need to redirect them to/from your new Fulton account.
Step 4: Notify your key professional service providers
Inform your key consultants — accountant, bookkeeper, attorney, insurance agent, etc. — of your switch to Fulton Bank, providing information about the account as appropriate for their needs.
Step 5: Close your old account
Once all of your checks have cleared, and all automatic payments and direct deposits are successfully being deducted or credited from your new Fulton Bank account, it’s now time to close your old account.
