You can deposit a cheque free of charge. Go into your app and select 'Add money' > 'Cheque Deposit'.
All you need to do is take a clear photo of your cheque. Please hold on to the physical cheque until you’re sure the money has cleared (we’ll send you a push notification when that happens).
This is normally two working days after the cheque has been deposited.
The cut-off time for deposits via the app is 3pm on any working day. Please note that cheque processing doesn’t take place on weekends or bank holidays.
Something else to note: cheques deposited in-app are limited to £500 in value. There is also a weekly limit of how many cheques you can deposit via the app.
For personal and joint accounts, you can deposit up to four cheques a week.
If you need to deposit more cheques than this, or would prefer to post your cheques just pop it in an envelope addressed to 'Freepost STARLING' (no stamp required) - making sure to put your surname and eight digit Starling account number on the back of each cheque.
