Sole Proprietorship: Business or Personal?

Answered by: 

Question: 
Regarding a sole proprietorship checking account under the new Reg E changes, is the account considered a business or personal account?
Answer: 

Recent amendments to Regulation E have not impacted the coverage of the regulation: 205.2(b)(1) Account means a demand deposit (checking), savings, or other consumer asset account (other than an occasional or incidental credit balance in a credit plan) held directly or indirectly by a financial institution and established primarily for personal, family, or household purposes. Since a sole proprietorship checking account is established for business purposes, it is not covered.
