There are no monthly maintenance fees or minimum balance requirements for the Live Oak Bank Business Savings account, however, the Dormant Account Fee will apply. If an account has a balance less than $10.01 and no activity for 24 consecutive months (“no activity” is defined as no withdrawals, deposits, contact with a Customer Success Manager, nor customer log-ins to the online banking website), a dormant account fee will be assessed and the account will be closed. The amount of the fee will be the account balance or $10.00, whichever is less. The dormant account fee will not lower the account balance beyond $0.00 and thus cannot overdraw the account.
