Opening Your Sole Proprietor Business Account

  • Membership is open to sole proprietor businesses in Washoe County, Nevada.

  • Because we want to make sure we offer you the time and attention you deserve, we will take new account walk-ins until 4:30 (M-F); scheduled appointments encouraged. On Saturday, new accounts will be taken by appointment only.
  • We will require that each signer’s info passes through ChexSystems, a consumer-reporting agency that aids financial institutions in identifying applicants who may have a history of account abuse. If you want to learn more or dispute an inaccurate report, you can contact ChexSystems anytime.
  • Feel free to take a look at the new account disclosures ahead of time.


To open a sole proprietor business account, you’ll need:

  1. $25 opening deposit for your savings account; this is the business entity’s share of ownership in the credit union.
