How do bank statements work?
Electronic statements are more common nowadays and they are a convenient and secure way of viewing your bank statements online. Often they can be easily downloaded directly from your online banking or banking app. Digital statements are usually free but some banks may charge you a fee for paper statements.
If you’re a Starling customer we won’t send you paper bank statements (we’re doing our bit for the environment), but you can download them directly from the app, for custom date ranges in both CSV and PDF format.
What is included on your bank statement?
At the top of your bank statement, you’ll typically find:
You’ll then find a list of all your transactions within the stated period, along with the date each one was processed and details on the individual transactions. You’ll also get a view of all deposits and withdrawals (including cash and cheques) and any interest that was added to the account.
Your bank statement may also show you your overdraft limit and any notices of charges or fees incurred.
