TODAY’S TIP: Open a separate checking account for your business. If you are the sole owner of the business, open an additional personal account and save yourself the extra fees associated with business accounts. Deposit your settlement checks in this account and pay yourself for driving from these funds. A separate account will also give you easy access to all of the information needed in case you are ever audited.
