Clear Books and Metro Bank launch accounting software partnership

Today, Clear Books and Metro Bank are launching a new partnership, offering easy accounting software with free bank feeds and exclusive discounts to Metro Bank small business customers. The integration provides Metro Bank’s customers with access to Clear Books’ easy to understand financial management tools via online and mobile banking.
Here’s how it works;

  1. Metro Bank customers can use the Metro Bank app to register for a free Clear Books accounting trial.
  2. They have 30 days of free access to manage their Metro Bank transactions in Clear Books, raise professional invoices and view financial reports.
  3. At the end of the trial period, users can subscribe for the level of access that suits them, securing a 25% discount for life.

This will be available for mobile banking customers using iOS immediately, with Android functionality to follow in the coming weeks.

Offering deeper integration and cheaper pricing, the new partnership makes Clear Books a great choice for Metro Bank small business customers who are looking to take control of their accounting.

Clear Books CEO, Ruth Fouracre said: “We love working with banks and fintechs to integrate accounting software and online banking platforms. The links make it easier for small businesses to manage their finances.”

“We worked alongside Metro Bank to carefully design a customer experience that provided small businesses with access to Clear Books accounting tools through Metro Bank’s online banking platforms. This partnership provides users of both Clear Books and Metro Bank with great tools, a more aligned experience between the two products, and amazing discounts.”

David Thomasson, Chief Commercial Officer at Metro Bank, adds: “We’re thrilled to partner with Clear Books to provide our business customers with essential money management tools, easily accessible from our mobile app. These will empower SMEs to free up time in a way that wasn’t possible before, to spend running and growing their businesses.”
