So your business has taken off and now you’re in the market for a business bank account. Or you’re an established business just looking for a new and better provider. Whatever the reason, choosing a business bank account is a big deal - but how do you choose the right one? It will surely depend on your business’ banking needs, which obviously can differ from business to business.

At Starling, we’re dedicated to helping SMEs and we want to make it easy for you to compare the business bank accounts on the market and give you an overview of the potential need-to-haves and nice-to-haves for your business.
