04 Dec My top 10 reasons why you should move to Starling Bank today
Have you heard of Starling Bank?
If “yes”, we’re super excited to announce that Progression Accountancy are now part of the Starling Bank partnership program!
This could even be mistaken for an understatement!
If “no”, check out below why I believe Starling Bank is one of the very best business tools out there…
The Starling App – mobile banking to the next level
Starling itself says: “Say hello to Britain’s Best Business Banking Provider 2020!”
After using Starling since the middle of 2019 for my business account (and since early 2019 for my personal account), it’s easy to realise why this is the case. I just can’t rate it highly enough!
Whilst many banks are still high street based, Starling is mobile banking. It’s really slick & SUPER easy to work with. And it hooks up with Xero – so it’s a win win in my eyes!

My TOP 10 reasons to move to Starling Bank today!
There are so many reasons why. But here are my personal top 10 reasons to make the move today…
1 – Speedy account setup
It literally takes minutes to apply for a Starling bank account using the app or browser, and you can safely upload your documents too. Compare this to the 40+ page application form I had to fill in when we applied to our previous bank!
2 – No monthly fees
Yes, that’s right! – £0 pounds per month. An easy-to-use business account stacked with powerful money management tools, all with no monthly fees or UK payment charges.
3 – Customer support 24/7
Through the app, you have access to 24/7 support. Any queries you have are dealt with quickly!
4 – Easy to use app
The app is really slick & easy to use – just login using a passcode. If you’re used to using Xero for your finances, then you’ll love the experience of using Starling app!
5 – See everything at a glance
See all of your accounts on your dashboard for easy overview of everything, from the accounts you have & the amount you’re spending.
6 – Categorise payments
Per transaction, per vendor, per month, in numbers & graphs – so you can easily see where you’re spending money.
7 – Instant payment notifications
So you’re no longer needing to spend ages separately logging in to your account to see what’s been spent & what’s been received. This is a really useful feature, as sometimes you need to know if certain transactions have happened – instant notification means you can.
8 – Spaces
A cool feature that allows you to quickly save for those big costs – set things like tax and overheads to one side. Ihave loads of Spaces set up & it’s really quick to move money around – I can even add an image & target amount too!
9 – Manage your card easily
If you need to cancel your card or request a replacement, you can easily manage your card from within the app.
10 – Integrates with Xero
The big win win! Free bank feed & it’s almost instantaneous!
