For most new account representatives and personal bankers, opening business accounts creates the most angst! Why are there so many different types of business entities? What is the best way to determine who has authority to transact on behalf of the business entity? Unfortunately, too often, new account personnel are trained "on the job" which can result in an environment of potential vulnerability and unnecessary losses. Verifying if a business entity is legal and who has the authority to transact business on behalf of that entity can be complicated. This two-hour webinar, which is Part II of a three-part series, examines not only the documentation requirements on business entities available in most states but provides clarity on how to identify who has authority to open and transact on behalf of the entity. Part I of this three-part series encompasses Personal and Consumer Accounts and Part III covers Trust and Fiduciary Accounts.

It is highly recommended that attendees have a copy of the financial institution's account agreement, signature card, and resolutions to reference during the session. To customize the course to state law, the FI may want to access the Secretary of State’s website to review documentation requirements on forming business structures in your state.

The "Opening New Accounts Part II: Business Accounts" webinar has been approved for 2 CAMS credits. Credits are redeemable for Live attendance only. Accreditation is valid for one year from the date of the event. To receive a certificate, email info@ttsTrain.com.
