Not Strong Enough All Round

The mobile phone app is very simple to use and slick. But.. I hadn't checked closely enough, I thought it was mobile phone and phone banking. The fact that I can't use it on any other portal feels a bit 'eggs in one basket' - mobile phones are often lost or stolen but there is no other way to access your account in this event. Customer service is a chatbot, which has been quite slow, email responses are even slower. Overall it isn't strong enough for my business needs as I couldn't even get it to integrate with Xero, despite following numerous sets of instructions. Plus, trying to switch away from them is proving to be a nightmare which is odd given how quick they were to get my business. It feels like the emperor's new clothes - some nice touches but there isn't that much substance behind the stuff. If you live and die for your mobile phone, this account will be heaven for you. If you don't, you may find it disappointing.

Easy to use and amazing functionality

The banking with Starling is so smooth that you wonder how the old high street banks are surviving! I love the app and how foreword looking app they have. Amazing! Fabulous!

Faultless and free

As a founder and director of a start-up online retailer I need to watch every penny. When I launched my account was with HSBC, as I've always banked with them it seemed to make sense to. But when the free banking period was coming to an end I...

As a founder and director of a start-up online retailer I need to watch every penny. When I launched my account was with HSBC, as I've always banked with them it seemed to make sense to. But when the free banking period was coming to an end I discovered Starling, and decided wasting £5 a month on business banking when I could get it for free with Starling was a no-brainer. I use Xero for my accounts and my accountants were initially skeptical about using Starling as it didn't integrate as HSBC did, meaning more manual data entry for me. However imagine how delighted I was when Xero announced automated Starling integration a couple of months later that was even better than the HSBC integration (i.e. no need to dig out the PIN device to sync, it just happens automatically.) I have been super-impressed with everything Starling has done to date and now have a personal account with them too. If they continue to add additional services and benefits I can imagine a time in the not-to-distant future when I part company with HSBC entirely and bank solely with Starling. 10/10!

Starling was the first bank I turned to when I need a business bank account after setting up my new business. It was so simple and easy, just like their personal account. Such a breath of fresh air compared to traditional banks where you have to wait days for appointments and then that appointment can take an age. I highly recommend Starling.

It was night and day in comparison to my previous TSB Business banking - everything occurs online and works which is more than what could be said for our previous bank. I would like cheque deposit imaging to really sort out the whole flow - but they've streamlined that as much as possible in the offline approach (no paying in slip, free post address etc)

Great app for a fab new bank

It's so nice to be able to get an app based bank account that has good security features with a fingerprint and password, I've always got my finger with me! unlike my old high street bank account that I needed a security device to access my account...

It's so nice to be able to get an app based bank account that has good security features with a fingerprint and password, I've always got my finger with me! unlike my old high street bank account that I needed a security device to access my account and they even tell you when money goes in and out of your account without having to log on to find out.
It was extremely quick and easy to open an account too, my last 2 business accounts I had to do a full business plan and an extremely long application form, but Starling made it quick to apply with just a driving licence or passport and a selfie video. I love using my banking app.

Best bank experience ever, so simple so easy and quick, amazing keep it up, I just love the app, your up and running in seconds, compared to traditional banks wherein you need to spend 3 hours setting up a simple bank account.
