Starling Bank is making its business account offering available to the UK’s 34 million sole traders.
This announcement comes just over two months after Starling launched its business bank account.
Starling customers who are sole traders can apply for the business account in less than 10 minutes directly from their smartphone.
There are no fees for having an account, no fees for making a payment to another bank account and no fees for withdrawing cash.
The accounts are initially only available to existing Starling customers.
“We live in the age of the entrepreneur and start-up, but banks haven’t been providing a good enough service to them,” said Anne Boden, CEO at Starling Bank (pictured above).
“We want to change that.
“Since successfully launching the first mobile-only business bank account earlier this year, we have been humbled by the number of requests we have had from potential customers who are self-employed to launch an account for them.
“…Our self-employed customers can create an account that is free, quick to set up and allows them to manage all of their finances straight from their mobile phone.”
