What do I need to get started with NB Business Online and NB Business Mobile?

To enroll for Needham Bank’s Business Online Banking and Business Mobile you can self-register online or enroll at any of our convenient branch locations.

Self-registration is available for businesses with an existing Needham Bank deposit account. Self-registration must be completed by an authorized signer and the business must report under a Federal Tax ID (not a social security number). Customers looking to enroll in Business Online Banking for either an IOLTA account or business account reported under a social security number should contact a personal banker or local branch.

Can I deposit checks without visiting the branch?

The NB Business App allows users to deposit checks via their mobile devices. Commercial customers have a limit of $50,000 per day with a monthly limit of $100,000
