What is Countingup?

See how Countingup works for you and your clients.

Designed for clients ‘too small’ for other accounting software

If you have sole trader, self-employed and micro-business clients who:

  • Are not using accounting software yet (and don’t want to)
  • Have accounting software and don’t use it
  • Have accounting software and use it badly (so you have to tidy it up!)

A Countingup business account allows these clients to be MTD ready without them needing to use accounting software.

Countingup does have accounting software but it’s mostly there for you to use and not your clients (especially if they don’t want to).

Switching to a new business account is a lot easier for your clients than using accounting software.

Let’s help you make that happen.

MTD challenge small print

There are T&Cs for this challenge as we can’t always guarantee a client is suitable for a Countingup business account (most are, but we need to mention it).

And we need to be clear what we mean by ‘signing up’ a client to Countingup during the challenge time frame. We’ll need to you agree to the T&Cs to take part.

No more chasing paperwork

Clients with a Countingup business account are always connected to your Countingup accounting software. You always have instant access to up to date transaction data. This means no more nagging for missing information. Year ends are now easy.

The easiest MTD switch

It’s a much easier switch for a sole trader or small business client to open a new business account than it is to get them to set up accounting software. In 5 minutes they can have a new business account they can invoice from and pay expenses with from their phone.

With all their business transactions in one place – invoices, bills and expenses, you can manage their accounting for them and file their tax returns online.

Countingup is FREE for accountants

There’s no cost for accountants and bookkeepers to use Countingup to manage client accounts. Your clients pay a small monthly fee for their Countingup business account, but you don’t pay to use the accounting software that’s built in to Countingup.
