Business Deposit & Sweep Accounts

Blackhawk Bank’s Business Deposit Accounts are designed to fit your level of activity, with earnings credits available. Your banker will discuss features and benefits with you to determine the right deposit account for you, and how to maximize excess balances while maintaining liquidity. 

We specialize in customized solutions for dental and other health care practices including financing for an acquisition, starting a new practice, relocating or expanding a practice, adding a new location or refinancing existing debt.

Acquisition financing covers the contents of the practice including accounts receivable, equipment, patient records and working capital. Construction financing is available for remodeling and/or an additional location. 

First and foremost, as a LOCAL community bank, Blackhawk bankers have the expertise and autonomy to offer genuinely out-of-the-box thinking. Historically, we’ve structured loan packages that other banks couldn’t, wouldn’t, or lacked the knowledge needed to get it done. We can put together a loan package designed to meet your monthly out-flow requirements, with flexible terms and a competitive interest rate. With Blackhawk Bank, decisions are made right here – there’s no ‘big-bank’ corporate bureaucracy to navigate.
Interest rates depend on final credit approval, length of the loan term, closing costs and market conditions. Loans at Blackhawk Bank are competitively priced and come with the benefit of an entire financial team working on your behalf. Our business banking experts will help you manage every aspect of your financial well-being. 
Terms are based on specific needs and the final loan request. We offer competitive fixed rates, limited time interest-only programs (contingent upon credit approval), no prepayment penalty and a full range of financial solutions.
