Last night, after some delay in the release process, we published the latest version of the iOS app into the app store. Yes – some of you were eagerly expecting and we are slowly releasing this version over the next few days.
A few hours ago we started the same process on Android.
This is a big release for us because it puts in place the infrastructure we need to launch multiple accounts and in multiple geographies. Watch this space because things are going to happen quite quickly now.
What is in this release?
- Starling for Business Current Accounts available for new and existing customers who own a Ltd company.
- Spending Insights now includes faster payments in and out so you can have a better view of your monthly spending.
- You now don’t have to wait until the end of the month for your statement to be ready and can generate a partial statement which contains all of your transactions so far.
- Major platform changes that allow customers to have multiple accounts with us e.g 1 business and 1 personal account.
We have started threads for your feedback on both Android and iOS and listed the known bugs on the top. Please help us by adding any bugs you come across.
A note on sole trader support:
Following the launch of Starling for Business I wanted to clarity our position on sole trader accounts. The short answer is that Starling Bank is 100% committed to sole traders and launching a sole trader account; this will be launching in the next few months.
The release this weekend is this is the first step on our journey to provide the best banking service to businesses in the UK. We have started with ltd companies, but in doing so we have laid out the foundations to continue to iterate and provide banking services to other types of businesses such as sole traders, partnerships, charities etc.
Thank you for your patience whilst we make this happen and please continue to provide suggestions and feedback as to what you value most.
