What documents do I need to apply for a business account?

For LLCs and Corporations:

  • EIN

    • Please ensure that the Secretary of State filing is active

  • The beneficial owner will have to submit their SSN securely through the mobile app.

For Sole Proprietorships:

  • SSN (submitted securely through the mobile app)

  • EIN

    • If an EIN is not available, any one from the following documents below is required:

      1. Business License,

      2. Certificate of Trade Name,

      3. DBA Certificate,

      4. Schedule C,

      5. Certificate of Assumed Business Name,

      6. Proof of Business Registration

      7. Other documents that proves the establishment and legitimacy of business

For Partnerships:

  • For businesses with more than 1 owner, each individual with 25% or more of ownership in the business must fill up a separate Additional Owners Information sheet

  • Currently, partnerships with multiple owners holding 25% ownership may not receive approval for a Virtual Card. We're actively working to enhance our system to accommodate Virtual Card applications for partnerships.

  • Despite the temporary limitation on Virtual Card approval, partnerships can still enjoy all other features of our business account.

Can I register with a business that has virtual mailbox or P.O. box address?

Our partner banks require that your company has a physical address for your Virtual Card application to be approved. Unfortunately, even submitting government-issued verification like a Driver's License or an EIN will not suffice as long as it is registered to a virtual mailbox, shipping address, or P.O. Box.

If your supporting business documentation still shows a non-physical address but you've already filed for a change in business address, you may submit additional documentation such as a utility bill that shows your business name and new address, or official documentation supporting the address change.

Do I need to provide an EIN for my business?

We’ll only ask you to provide an EIN if you use one.

If your business does not have an EIN, you can create a business profile as a sole proprietor, using your SSN. Instead of the EIN, you will need to submit documentation that shows the establishment and legitimacy of the sole proprietorship. Please see list above for sole proprietors.

I already have access to the Power Portal, do I still need to apply for a Business account?

Yes. A business account will be required for continued access to the Power Portal. Otherwise, you may still access your Fluz account via the mobile app. Have any questions? Speak to a Power Sidekick.

I am a non-US resident, can I apply for a business account?

Yes. As long as you have a US-based business, you're eligible to apply for a business account.

Set up a business as a non-US-resident

When non-citizens decide to open a business in the US, there are two corporate entity types they can choose from. An LLC provides limited liability and profits, and receives lower tax benefits relative to other entity types such as C-Corps or S-Corporations.

However, regardless of citizenship status, anyone can easily form an LLC as long as they meet certain requirements, such as keeping their finances separate from those managed by any hired managers (who would then report those accounts accordingly).
