ING Business Account

ING Business Banking Canada

ING Offers a savings account, currently the rate is 1.00% for their Business Investment Savings Account (BISA). Does not look like they offer chequing option. However they do now have a good network of ATMs to make deposits and withdrawals.

If you get this account you would still need to sign up for a chequing account.

ING DIRECT Business photo cheque deposit: Currently only personal account can deposit cheques by sending in a photo from the ING Direct app, however ING is testing the same feature for the business accounts now.
