The plan that’s right for you, really depends on the size of your business and your business needs. As a guide, the ‘Small’ plan is for businesses who aren’t VAT registered and only use GBP, and the ‘Large’ plan is for VAT and CIS registered businesses and those using multiple currencies.

To add users to your Clear Books account, simply follow these steps.
Alternatively, to customise a new role enter a ‘Role Name’, select the permissions associated with this role and then ‘Add role’.
If you can’t sign up to Clear Books, you don’t have the required permissions to do so. If you want a Clear Books account speak to someone with full permissions on the bank account you want Clear Books for. They can either set up the Clear Books account for you or give you the necessary permissions on the bank account so you can set up Clear Books yourself.
If Clear Books is showing as ‘Account active’ on a bank account, it means that the bank account is connected to a Clear books account. If you didn’t set up the Clear Books account and can’t log in, but you’d like access to it, speak to the person who did set it up and ask them to add you as a user. They can do this on the Clear Books website.
