Starter Business Checking Tips, Info & FAQs
Cash-flow management and daily transactions at a minimal cost
Owning a business comes with no shortage of challenges. At United Texas, we want to do our part to help you overcome them.
That’s why we offer the Starter Business Checking account. You only need $100 to open one, but, after that, there is no minimum balance requirement or monthly service fees.
Every month, you’ll get your first 250 transactions for free. After that, each one costs just $0.35.
We also give our Starter Business Checking account holders free online banking and unlimited online bill pay.
When you sign up, we’ll also give you a free Debit Mastercard BusinessCard, plastic deposit bag, and an initial order of basic checks.
Starting a business isn't easy. But there are tools that can help.
Are you planning to start your own business in the near future? At United Texas, we’d love to play a role in your success. However, aside from offering you a Starter Business Checking account, this also means making sure you’re ready.
Before you begin with your small business, ask yourself the following questions.
1. Do I have enough money to begin?
It might be necessary to wait a bit longer before starting your business so you have time to secure the required capital. While we would be happy to offer you a loan to help out, it’s still wise to get clear about your startup costs and then look to cover as much of them as you can out-of-pocket.
2. Do I have a business plan?
One way to pinpoint the costs required to start your own business is by having a business plan. This plan will serve as a compass for many of your other business’ needs, too. Take your time creating one because it will be an important reference point for years to come.
3. Am I charging the right amount for my products/services?
Again, this is something you’ll cover in your business plan, but it’s crucial you get it right. Remember, you’re not just trying to make a profit. As a small business owner, you need to pay your own taxes, provide your own benefits, and set aside money for retirement. Make sure you’re charging enough to do this.
How long does it take to open a business checking account?
Once all the required documentation and signatures are gathered, a business account can be opened in less than two business days, and often the same day.
How do I order checks for my account?
To order your first set of checks, call (210) 561-4500 or visit any branch. For any recurring check orders, go to Main Street.
You’ll need the following information for online orders:
- Your account number
- Your routing number: 314088860
- Your control number
- The check number you would like your new book of checks to start with
Not sure what style of check you want? Take a look at Main Street’s catalog of check options.
Can anyone make a deposit or complete a transaction on my business account?
Only authorized signers are able to complete transactions. However, anyone can make a deposit into the account and we will never divulge any information (e.g., account balance or recent transactions).
Can I add or remove someone from a business account?
You will need to complete a new signature card and new resolution for your business.

I want to thank you for all your help and for making this a smooth transaction. This is the exact rapport l was expecting to have when switching banks. Y'all treated me like an actual bank customer and not a bank number. It was very refreshing to feel like I was actually developing a financial relationship with my bank. I have recently had several banks asking me to change for convenience and "better services". I.e. San Antonio bank, which just recently built a new office building next door to us. After getting the treatment I did with y'all and how smoothly my transactions have went, they would have to pry my hands away from y'all. In other words, I'm not going anywhere. I am very satisfied with how United Texas operates and treats their customers. Good job, I look forward to continue doing business with y'all. Thank you for your time and consideration.
