Accountant Hub agreement

These Terms are an extension of the existing Countingup Account agreement our customers agree to when applying for their Countingup accounts.

They apply to Countingup customers wishing to link their Countingup account to their accountant through the Accountant Hub.

Please read them carefully as they are binding to You from the time that your Countingup account is linked with an “End User”.
