Zero Balance Sweep Agreement

A zero account (ZBA) is pretty much exactly what it sounds: a current account in which a balance of zero is maintained. If the money is needed in the ZBA, the exact amount of money is automatically transferred from a central account or master account. Similarly, deposits are transferred daily to the master account. Businesses sometimes use zero-credit accounts to ensure that funds are readily available in all departments, to eliminate excess balances in separate accounts, and to maintain greater control over the payment of funds.

By focusing the funds on the master account, there is more money available for investments, instead of having small amounts in inactive dollars in a large number of sub-accounts. Often, the main account has additional benefits, for example. B a higher interest rate for balances than for sub-accounts. The main account is not a current account, but another type of bank account, more profitable. Thus, ZBAs maximize the funds available for investments and minimize the risk of overdraft fees.
