    I've been very pleasantly surprised with how easy and smooth changing banks actually is. I'm in the middle of moving my business account to Starling using the switching service, and all it took was a few clicks in their very slick mobile app. Totally painless.

    It all depends. For example, it depends how many linked savings accounts you have that need to be updated (the switching service may handle SOs and DDs, but it cannot contact those linked banks and have them update, right?). If your banking is simple, then I agree that something like Metro or Starling is a no-brainer.

    What business bank do people recommend with instant payments and doesn't charge a fee with a good phone app?

    Not as easy as you would think (without spending many millions like the founders)

    TSB or Yokshire/Clydesdale are currently doing a free offer for switchers

    Avoid Starling; can't be used on a jailbreak phone

    if i needed to do cash deposits and withdrawals 3-4 times per week, a traditional high street bank would be the best option wouldn't it?

    (i'm comparing to the likes of Starling / CA / Metro etc who don't have the same outlet presence)

    Well cash withdrawals can be done anywhere; a lot of those places will let you pay in via a post office.

    Metro have lots of presence - including being open evenings and weekends.
