It is the best business bank offering a free, reliable and convenient service. It has one or two drawbacks such as when you deposit cash as a self employed worker through a post office, they will charge you and you can deposit maximum £20.000 annually if I am not wrong. If they can fix this, it is the best bank overall in UK I think. Open one in minutes!

Got nowhere

Didn't even get as far as opening an account. Their website is inaccurate and customer support about the issue was unhelpful and rude.

Running a small limited IT company I didn't want to waste money on expensive banks when I only had limited need of their services. I'd had previous experience of the big banks and begrudged paying for the slow, painful process of managing the companies money. I knew about the start up banks and tried Starling among others. The set up and validation was painless and quick, the app was simple, intuitive (for the most part) and had sufficient functionality for my needs. If I ever had an issue, contact to their support team was quick (no hanging around on the telephone), the staff were knowledgeable and the query quickly resolved. I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience and have recommended to others.

Car dealers are a pariah apparently

Would like to give more but denied the opportunity. Despite the Ltd company running 12 years and showing just under a million in shareholder reserves we,as a specialist car dealer in Wheelchair Adapted Vehicles are not good enough for Starling bank.

Excellent choice for Business Banking

The transfer was seamless, setup was quick and easy. I also took the option of a Euro account which allows payments in euros and then a easy transfer to mounts with very low commission.

If you are one of the thousands of businesses being recommended to switch from them to Starling read this first......

Just tried to switch banks to Starling Business. We have run a profitable business for 8 years and never required financing. They for undisclosed reasons declined our switch despite that we have a 6 figure turnover, no adverse credit (neither business nor personal) and have refused to give a reason - despite supposedly carrying out credit checks (which we have done ourselves and they are fine). This non-disclosure of reasons is no different than the behaviour of traditional high street banks, so we are very disappointed considering Starling are supposed to be a modern, progressive bank. They have not even asked us for any explanations or clarifications on any points. Very disappointed with them and just seem like yet another computer says no High Street bank. They are clearly not even interested in finding more about businesses and the business owners and just rely on the computer says no systems...and worst still waiting for their typical High Street brush off response to this, which will confirm all the above.

A bank that understands their customer needs! I know exactly what I'm spending & depositing on the go!

The app is really easy to use. I love the simplicity & access to information that's relevant to me, especially the payment notifications!!

I needed a business account and tried out Starling Bank after a friend recommended it to me. I had to start up a company very quickly and needed a bank account quickly. I've had it for 4 months now and I'm very happy I chose Starling. The app is nice and simple and everything works. What more do you need? I highly recommend Starling if you do not need a branch, i.e. to make cash deposits.

Flexible, clear and no fuss banking

Easy to set up. Well summarised compliance regulations that the client needs to be aware of. Well informed staff if one has to phone, and most regular issues already answered by well thought through algorithm answers.

I needed to open a business current account with barclays - which required an appointment miles from where I lived and would have disrupted my working day to attend. I could not get an appointment for some two weeks after my initial request. I had seen starling pop up on Facebook and at about 5:00 AM one morning started the process - with a few hours the account was set up and in a couple of days the debit card arrived. Starling is a smooth operator that understands the needs of customers. Very satisfied with the bank.

Quickbooks and more

Being able to sync with quickbooks has made my life easier. i hated doing bookkeeping. And being able to add notes and upload receipts for each transaction made it easier to remember what they were for.

Nowadays technology has become part of our life. Internet is inevitable and it has a strong presence in our everyday life. Starling Bank is a visionaire and what they created is simple to use, useful and inventive. I absolutely love the app and how easy it is to interact with. Couldn't recommend more! The only way to go especially for a star up business like mine.
