Organisation

Clear Books provides easy to use cloud accounting and payroll software for thousands of small businesses and accountants. We sell our software through three channels: (a) direct to SMEs through our website; (b) via accountants to their clients; and (c) via large, strategic partners who have small business customers.

Our mission is to empower micro-businesses to better understand and manage their finances.

Over the past thirteen years, we have built a tight-knit team that feels like a family and which has a friendly, enthusiastic and loyal ethos. Our office is based in Hammersmith, but we offer an optional hybrid working arrangement.
