Yes – you can deposit a cheque free of charge. Just pop it in an envelope addressed to 'Freepost STARLING' (no stamp required). Remember to clearly write your last name and your eight digit Starling account number on the back of the cheque. The cheque must be made out to the account holder and drawn in pounds sterling.
If you'd rather send your cheque by registered delivery, use our PO Box address: Starling Bank, PO Box 74352, London, EC2P 2QU.
As soon as we receive your cheque, you'll get an in-app notification. Once received, it usually takes five working days for the cheque to clear and for the money to be available in your account. You'll start earning interest on the cheque two working days before it clears.
