    I would have suggested USAA as well but as you stated they don`t do business accounts. I would look into the larger banks like BofA or Chase

    Have you checked out USAA? They provide insurance as well as bank accounts. They basically for the military and should be easy to get a business account. Also, most bases overseas have Credit Unions that you should be able to utilize for that. Good Luck!

    Hey guys!

    I am wondering if anyone with military experience had some tips for getting a business banking account while overseas at an APO address. I am finding that many banks do not offer business options for us entrepreneurs still tied to good `ol Uncle Sam.

    I considered getting a PO box in the state I am registered in, but I`m not sure how feasible that would be. Any help would be great. Thanks!

    Yeah, we use them for our personal bank accounts, but they don`t offer business solutions. Bummer. Thanks though!

    getting a PO box is not tough so consider that done. in terms of banking, i am not aware of any "special" provisions a business account needs compared to a personal.  what features are you particularly looking for? with the PNC takeover of midwest based national city (now the 5th largest bank) i use them for business banking. the only disadvantage i have is i cant electronically xfer funds to and from my business and personal accounts since my biz accts are under a business EIN. 
     
    before you approach the bank, go online and get yourself a EIN.  to get your EIN you will need your corporate incorporation documents. it has a number on it which is required to fill the EIN application.  once you have both tasks done, getting an account at any bank, no matter where you are shouldn`t be a problem?
