Zero Balance Account (ZBA) Services

First Independence Bank’s Zero Balance Account is a checking account in which a balance of zero is maintained by automatically transferring funds from a master account in an amount only large enough to cover checks presented in a disbursement account. A Zero Balance Account is used by corporations to eliminate excess balances in separate accounts and maintain greater control over disbursement.

  • Excess funds in the master account can be invested to increase returns and maintain liquidity
  • Maximizes funds available for investment and minimizes risk of overdraft fees
  • Eliminates the need for anticipatory funding of disbursement accounts
  • Reduces the time and effort needed to reconcile multiple operating accounts
