Back in 2011, our founder Ashley made a commitment to make shared bills easy for students, young professionals, landlords and letting agents across the UK.
Building a close-knit, dedicated team to drive his vision forward, Split The Bills soon became the leading brand in the bill management industry.
Every year, we’re working on new creative and innovative ideas to make shared-living and -billing simple. Creating a digital customer experience is a core part of our latest mission, bringing the complicated and time-consuming world of bills into the digital-age.
We’ve made a pledge to donate £1 for every new property we take on to Student Minds, the student mental health charity.
We live by one value; easy. Everything we do and plan for is to make shared-living as effortless as possible for our customers.
Last year, we recycled 2.5 tonnes of waste. Having recycle bins around Split HQ helps us to reduce wastage as much as possible.
In 2017, we signed the Time To Change employer pledge, committing to change the way we think and act about mental health within the workplace.
Since then we have recruited employee Champions, trained mental health first aiders and introduced our Head Shed where our people can take a breather should they ever need to.
We run regular mental health awareness events throughout the year, including Curry and Chaat for Mental Health Awareness Week, Tea and Talk for Time To Talk Day and we ‘Cycled Around The Globe’ for World Suicide Prevention Day.
Our hard work and dedication to mental health has been recognised beyond our office walls and we have been invited to talk about our contribution at various high profile events, including the Royal Foundation Workplace Wellbeing Conference, at a number of Time To Change masterclasses across the country and at the launch of the Mental Health at Work gateway in 2018, which we continue to work on as part of the Mental Health at Work steering group.
We’ve also been featured in a supplement in The Guardian this year, which focuses on good mental health practice in the workplace.
These guys help to run the show and drive forward the Split The Bills vision. We asked them who their favourite Bill is and why, here’s what they came up with.
Although I’m 100% an Apple fan, Bill Gates’ personal beliefs and dedication to create a better world are inspiring. I’m a big supporter of the Gates Foundation and the work they do.

I’d say my favourite bill is Billie Piper. Obviously, I had to pick a woman because y’know, girl power! And 10-year-old me loved a bit of ‘Honey to the B’.
Head of Business Transformation
Bill Brunton, he may not be a household name however in the used VW car sale market in Edinburgh he is a Legend, he’s also my and everyone’s favourite uncle!
