Planning for the future for your business can include balancing between savings and investments. Sharonview offers short term and longer term Certificates of Deposit to help your business find that balance. Your business will get a stronger, guaranteed rate of return when you open a Business Share Certificate.
You business has different options, depending on the goals. Some business maximize their options by opening several Share Certificates that mature at different times, a strategy known as laddering. This allows money to be available when needed, while leaving other funds in savings to keep earning dividends. When the Share Certificates mature, your business can choose to withdraw money or keep it deposited for another full term.
You may know this type of account as a CD or Certificate of Deposit, as that is how banks refer to these accounts. As a credit union, however, we refer to these accounts as Share Certificates, because as a member-business-owner of Sharonview you are also a Shareholder in Sharonview. You business earns dividends off of these share accounts, and not interest, like you would on a depository account at another institution.

Dividends are calculated by the average daily balance method which applies a periodic rate to the average daily balance in your account for the Period. The average daily balance is calculated by adding the balance in your account for each day of the Period and dividing that figure by the number of days in the Period. For all accounts, the dividend period begins on the first calendar day of the month and ends on the last calendar day of the month; dividends are compounded daily and credited monthly. For Certificates, the APY assumes dividends remain in the account until maturity; a withdrawal will reduce earnings. Certificates will automatically renew at maturity after a grace period of 5 calendar days. Share/Savings, Checking and Money Market Accounts rates may change at any time after the account is opened, based on the determination of the Credit Union’s Board of Directors. Dividends are paid from current income and available earnings, after required transfers to reserves at the end of a dividend period. The Dividend Rate and APY set forth in this schedule are prospective rates and yields the Credit Union anticipates paying for the applicable dividend period.
