Clearbooks is a SaaS accounting system for SMEs. It is used by the finance department and senior management. We have written our own internal systems and use the Clearbooks APIs to file client invoices into the accounts system. Accounts systems do not need an explanation.
  • SaaS, so accessible by anyone, anywhere in the world via a browser
  • Clear and straight forward navigation
  • Good choice of management reports
  • Like any SaaS product, Clearbooks is continuously evolving and being improved
  • Some of the reports still need some work
Larger companies, multi-currency.
Clearbooks is in a competitive environment with Xero, SageOne, FreeAgent, Intuit etc., etc.

  • I am not sure that ROI is an appropriate measure for an accounts package. The cost is around £250/year, which is a tiny fraction of the cost of a bookkeeper/finance controller/finance director/CFO.
Clearbooks was chosen 5 years ago as our accountant recommended it. There is an element of inertia in moving accounts packages.
