Accountancy has evolved, and so has the way accountants charge for services. Instead of invoicing clients once annually in arrears, you can use Direct Debit to spread the cost in staggered monthly payments, making it easier both for you and your customers.
Accountants make up around 50% of our clients, so we have a deep understanding of the accountancy space and its processes and challenges. Whether collecting for VAT returns, tax returns, annual accounts, audits or ad-hoc consultancy work, you can use our Direct Debit and card payment facilities to bring faster, easier collections and improved cash flow to your business.
How We Work With You
Working closely with TaxAssist and the ICPA, as well as hundreds of accountants across the UK, we understand the importance of branded collection. Payments and receipts need to be easily identified, and your business name will appear on statements rather than that of an unfamiliar service provider.
Every firm has their own requirements, and we will go over your needs to see exactly how we can bring benefits to your business. Our efficient online portal and central reporting suite offer great functionality and access to data, and we provide training to ensure you get the most out of it. Customer service is paramount to us, and we take care to provide a solution that is tailored specifically to you.
We can also help you help your clients. Many accountants approach us looking to refer clients who need to make the switch to Direct Debit and card payments, and we have ongoing relationships with many clients who have taken advantage of our referral scheme.
Your clients’ bank statements will show your business name as the payment reference, not your service provider.
If our service works well for you, it could work for your clients too. Ask us about our partner scheme.
We remove the pain of annual charging and allow you to spread your fees over the year for more manageable payments.
Smaller, affordable monthly payments taken in a frictionless way help foster an easier relationship with clients.
As a qualified accountant, I understand the specific benefits the industry can gain from Direct Debits and card payments, and have adapted our services to work around these pressure points.
