UK banking licence


Hi, I really want to close my business account with Starling as I’m absolutely sick of their arrogance but alternatives with a full licence are even worse. (looking forward to N26 opening in the UK and Nationwide to allow business customers).

I know you are working on getting a EU banking licence in Lithuania, but brexit day is too close.

Are you working on getting a full UK licence and “instant” connection to faster payments? Any estimation you could disclose? Thanks.


I’m not sure if I’m allowed to mention competitors but have you taken a look at Tide Business Banking? Might suit your needs.


thanks for the suggestion, I’ll give them a try.


It was mentioned before that they are in process of getting an eu license. And also that they have separately started on the UK one.
