Frequently asked questions about sub-accounts
Learn the basics of Bluevine sub-accounts so you can use them to simplify money management for payroll, expenses, taxes, emergencies, or other business needs.
What is a sub-account?
A sub-account is an account with its own dedicated account number that you can use in addition to your main Bluevine Business Checking account. All Bluevine Checking accounts have the same routing number, but each sub-account will have a unique account number.
How many sub-accounts can I open?
Currently, each Bluevine Business Checking account can have up to 5 sub-accounts. That means that you can have up to 6 active Bluevine checking accounts.
Who can open a sub-account?
Only your Business Checking account owner can open a sub-account. Once your sub-account is opened, all additional users will have access and can complete transactions, move money, and make payments across all open accounts.
Will each sub-account have a different account number?
Yes, each sub-account will come with a dedicated account number. This makes it easier to track how your money moves across your accounts and control which account vendors, suppliers, and contractors can bill. You can also order separate checkbooks if you’d like to make payments from one or more of your sub-accounts.
Will each sub-account come with its own debit card?
No, you will not receive a separate debit card for your sub-accounts. Your existing Bluevine Business Debit Mastercard® will still only debit from your main account.
