The Products You Need for Managing and Tracking Business Expenses

Learn more about the different products you can use to make tracking and managing your expenses as a business owner easier.

Running a flourishing business means overseeing a constant flow of money. Luckily, though, there are products that can help you cover, manage and track your business expenses effectively and smoothly. Let’s take a look at some of them. 

Business checking accounts 

A designated business checking account can help a business manage and track expenses, taxes and revenue. Separate accounts also protect the business owner from losing personal assets if action is taken against the company. Business owners can use their checking accounts to deposit checks made out to their company and to cover business expenses, such as payroll or paying suppliers.

Business savings account 

A business savings account is an account designated for funds to be used in case of  emergency or for future business expenses. The money in this account will grow at a greater dividend rate, but access to funds is more limited. Listerhill's Business Share Savings account accrues competitive interest and only requires $5 to open. Learn more about Listerhill's Business Share Savings account

Business credit card 

A business credit card provides small business owners with easy and unsecured access to a revolving line of credit. The business owner can use the credit to withdraw cash as necessary, cover large expenses, make purchases, fund expansion or meet monthly bill payments. 

A business credit card is easier to qualify for in comparison to a business loan, but will nearly always have a higher interest rate. However, if the business owner is careful only to use the credit card when it is absolutely necessary and pays the bill before it’s due, interest will not accrue. With Listerhill's business credit card, you can get awesome perks like a low fixed rate, multiple user access, merchandise rewards and a flexible credit limit. Learn more about what you need to open a business credit card with Listerhill.

Tax software 

Tracking business expenses and marking which can be deducted from a company’s tax liability can be super-challenging. Tax software designed for businesses makes this task easy.  Business tax software, like H&R Block, Quickbooks, TaxAct and TaxSlayer, can track all the expenses of a business and help owners file taxes efficiently and easily.

Money management apps 

Managing expenses for a small business isn’t easy. Fortunately, there’s an app for that! Money management apps like Mint, Truebill and ZohoBooks, allow businesses to track and review all their expenses in one convenient location. Chart expenses on colored graphs, categorize them for easier tax filing and link accounts for automatic syncing of expenditures and income.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What can home equity loans be used for?

    Home equity loans provide you with the opportunity to chase dreams to the fullest. Enjoy a vacation with the whole family, invest in a household remodeling project, or even finance an upcoming vehicle purchase with only a few clicks.  If you can dream it, you can achieve it!

  • What type of requirements exist for home equity loans?

    Home equity loans rely on a loan to value ratio (LTV) to disburse funds, meaning that your credit score and home equity value should be fairly substantial to take advantage of all possible benefits. For assistance in the home equity loan pre-approval process, please speak with your local Listerhill Credit Union branch.

  • How do home equity loans work?

    Also known as a second mortgage, home equity loans work by borrowing against the value of your home’s current equity. You may calculate this yourself by subtracting the amount you owe on your mortgage from the value of your home. Home equity loans provide lump-sum funds at fixed rates, creating affordable monthly payments that are consistent and affordable.

  • What information should I know before securing a land loan?

    When you purchase land, you want to ensure that it can be used for the desired purpose. That involves having certain information about the land in advance, such as the items listed below:

    • Land survey to know the boundaries of the property
    • Property easements so you know who has permission to enter or use your land for sewer pipes or cable wires
    • Title search to see what easements are on your land
    • Zoning laws to determine whether the land is zoned for residential use, commercial use, or another option
    • Flood hazard risk, so you’re aware of any extreme weather risks
    • Appraisal so you know the value of the land compared to similar options 
  • When does it make sense to refinance a mortgage?

    Refinancing your home loan can be a great option to secure a better loan for your current circumstances and future goals. It makes sense to refinance your mortgage if one of the benefits will be helpful for you:

    • Secure a lower interest rate
    • Reduce your mortgage term
    • Switch from an adjustable-rate mortgage to a fixed-rate mortgage or vice versa
    • Borrow against the equity in your home


    If doing any of the above would benefit you, refinancing might be the next best move.
