6 Reasons Why Starling Is The Perfect Startup Bank


Businesses today are different from how they were 30 years ago. Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) face unique challenges and opportunities, which require them to be innovative and adaptable. In this evolving business landscape, even banking is changing. At Addition, we’re always searching for digital tools that make running a business easier and more efficient. That’s why we’re excited to announce our partnership with Starling Bank, an award-winning digital startup bank in the business and current account space.

But what sets Starling Bank apart? Let’s hear from six small business owners who share their experiences!

Starling Marketplace and Sparqa Legal are game-changers if you work with freelancers!

The Starling Marketplace app, provided by this innovative startup bank, makes it simple for Hair Popp to set goals and save money for things like market exhibitions or paying interns and freelancers. Sparqa Legal, another excellent tool offered by Starling Bank, makes creating contracts for working with freelancers and interns a breeze. Plus, Dominique loves that it’s a female-founded company!

Jason Guy, Founder of Festival Glitter

Want a bug-free app, fuss-free access, and actual support? Go with Starling!

Jason switched banks because his previous one offered no support during the pandemic. With Starling, everything works smoothly without any complications or the need to remember long passwords and random questions. Jason wished he had made the switch to this startup bank sooner and describes the move to Starling Bank as a breath of fresh air.

Spaces helps create just that – breathing room for small business admin loads.

The Saving Spaces feature allows you to set money aside for specific purposes, like paying accountants or covering recurring expenses. Automating monthly transfers to Spaces reduces administrative work and provides breathing room for businesses like Kasera.

With Starling, you get more than just a bank account. Its business toolkit function is a winner!

For Elle Bell, Starling Bank’s business toolkit function is the true lifesaver. It takes away the stress of the financial side of her business. She loves the categorisation of spending and finds both this function and the tax calculation factor to be valuable additions.
