Protect your business from check and electronic fraud by using Columbia Bank’s Positive Pay and ACH Filter products. Positive Pay allows you to inform the bank what checks you have written and compares that data against checks presented against your account. If we receive a check that does not match what you’ve told us you’ve issued, we provide an exception report and give you the control to decide whether to pay or return the check.
ACH filters gives you control over what electronic transactions can post to your account(s). You tell us who you’ve authorized to send electronic transactions to your account(s)—all other transactions will be rejected and you will be contacted to make the decision to allow those transactions to post or be returned.
Being in control of your daily cash flow is an essential function of a successful business. Columbia Bank offers several funds management options that enable you to spend your time doing what you do best—running your business.
Zero Balance Accounts (ZBAs)
Fund your payroll, accounts payable and other disbursement accounts from your main operating account. ZBAs give you the option to segregate your transactions while eliminating the need to manually transfer funds back and forth.
By linking your operating account to an Investment Sweep, our systems help you maximize cash flow. Excess balances are transferred. You gain competitive returns while saving the time and energy of managing your balances.
A Line of Credit Sweep can be linked from your operating account to your loan. Save interest expense by using our automated systems to pay down your line every night with excess funds. And if you need money to fund your operating account—the sweep will transfer from your line of credit into your operating account.
If you borrow from your line occasionally but at other times have excess funds to invest, we can provide a Dual Sweep, which will either pay down your line or transfer balances to your investment account.
Account analysis provides an earnings credit, based on your combined balances, that will be applied to offset your service charges. This earnings credit can not only offset the cost of your checks paid, deposits, wire transfers, etc., it can also be used to offset the cost of any other treasury management product or service.
