I am thinking that the Starling statements need to be changed to general industry standards.
There is no balance after each transaction as Starling is only giving end of day consolidated balance. This is an issue with using statements for various visa applications as multiple countries have rules around maintenance funds for a set number of days and the balance (not end of day balance) at all times should not go below a certain point and that balance should be clearly visible at all times.
Ability to generate a statement within the month - Again this is important as for various applications your statements cannot be older than a set number of days
There is no description for the transaction if the user at other bank did not put any references. Except Starling, most of the other banks do not mandate the user to enter a reference when transferring money. But even if we don’t put and reference, the banks put something like the name of the sender or so. Starling is giving an empty transaction description.
