How Analyzed Checking works

If you are a business with a lot of account activity (roughly over 100 transactions per month), it makes sense to utilize “account analysis.” Account analysis is a common solution offered by the banking industry, which leverages balances against transaction fees. It provides the opportunity to pay for deposit and cash management tools with the balances you keep.

Community Bank of the Bay consistently provides one of the highest Earnings Credit Rates in the market. This allows you to offset more of your account fees than at any big bank. Following is a comparison of a typical “Account Analysis” account at CBB versus your typical big bank. This sample business would save $341.25 per month by banking at CBB.

Each month, all non-interest earning balances are tracked, and all transaction volume and related service charges are tracked. At the end of each month, the Bank creates an analysis statement. This statement totals all transaction fees and applies a soft “credit” for balances. The credit is calculated just like interest, by multiplying an “earnings credit rate” times the average balances in the accounts during the month. Unlike interest, if the credit is more than the charges for the month, the excess credit is lost. If the credit isn’t enough to cover the fees, the difference is charged to the account at the end of the month.
