account reconciliation


Account reconciliation can be complicated, time consuming, and frustrating. If your reconciliation process is any or all of these things, First Business Bank has the solution for you. We offer three types of account reconciliation so you are able to choose the one that best fits your needs.

  1. Full – provides a file download of all account activity, including checks, ACH debits and credits,
    wire transfers, and paper deposits.
  2. Partial – provides a file download of all cleared checks.
  3. Deposit – provides a file download of all deposits.

Account reconciliation is made available via Online Business Banking and may be integrated with Positive Pay for better fraud protection and ease of error resolution.

How Does it Work?

Depending on the type of reconciliation you choose, information files may be downloaded daily, weekly, or at month end, in a format that will match your internal system. We set up your download cycle to fit your needs.

Benefits To Your Business:

• Efficiency – this service allows you to deal with exceptions rather than every posted item.

• Save time and money – the service automates and streamlines time consuming tasks and
reduces administrative time and processing costs.

• Fraud protection – helps prevent honest errors and real fraud.
