Seamless experience

This collaboration showcases the cutting-edge technology of both platforms. The result is a seamless experience for accountants and their small business clients. One that logically linking business advisory with an integrated funding solution.

Aynsley Damery, CEO of Clarity, shares I am immensely excited to release the first integration between business and funding/capital advisory. The combination of the two is crucial for small business owners, in order for them to succeed. Now more than ever, accountants are going above and beyond for their small business clients. They are helping them to react to the volatile COVID landscape, lockdowns and ever-changing government stimulus packages. In order for small businesses to survive and thrive in 2021 and beyond, actionable strategies and business plans must be delivered together with a supporting loan or cash-flow solution. It goes without saying that this integration is the ideal solution for accountants. Particularly those looking to deliver outstanding value added services for their SME clients”.

No two apps within the accounting ecosystem have ever worked together so closely to open up a seamless integration for small businesses. Put simply, this partnership means that accountants can create a strategy and business plan for their clients and help them fund it within the same platform. The smooth integration of the two platforms eliminates any complexity. Thus enabling accountants to focus on their clients and SMEs to focus on their goals.

Business are four times more likely to get funding with guidance from an accountant

In normal economic cycles, businesses can rarely scale from their own existing reserves and often need to look outside to raise capital. Since COVID this has become even more apparent. However, the funding landscape is more complex and the requirements of lender’s stronger than ever before. Oliver Cummings, Commercial Director at Capitalise, says, “Businesses are four times more likely to get funding with guidance from an accountant. Therefore, this partnership was a natural progression for both Clarity and Capitalise to embark upon. As we know, CBILS and furlough are coming to an end in January and March. So it makes sense that our first app partner integration allows advisors to get ahead and ensure their clients are given the best chance to succeed in 2021”.
