Opening a bank account shouldn’t take weeks. At Starling, we’ve decided to do things a little differently. Open a bank account online using your mobile phone - it’s quick, straightforward and transparent.
As long as you’re 16 or over, and a resident in the UK only, you’ll be able to apply for a bank account online on your phone (no branch visits here) and in most cases, get an instant decision.
Opening a business or sole trader account at Starling does not guarantee that you will be approved for a loan under the Bounce Back Loan Scheme or any other lending scheme.
Due to high demand, new account processing times are longer than usual. Please bear with us.
