This week Clear Books announced its new partnership with AIMS – the UK’s largest association of professionally qualified accountants.

Clear Books online accounting software is now a chosen supplier for AIMS, meaning the software will be recommended to over 250 independent accountants who between them are looking after in excess of 15,000 clients.

Lizzie Fouracre from Clear Books who has been overseeing the partnership says, “we already have strong foundations with AIMS and I am confident that this is going to turn into a prosperous partnership for both parties”.

Clear Books is already partnered with 100 accountants and has almost 3,000 small businesses subscribed to its accounting package. These figures are phenomenal when you consider that Clear Books is just over three years old.

The reason for Clear Books’ fast growth is down to the simple design of the program and its ease of use. The regular addition of new features requested by customers also has a part to play in the rapid expansion.

AIMS has always strived to throw out the old fashioned accountancy approach and advance with new technology so partnering with Clear Books was a logical decision.

Tim Fouracre, founder of Clear Books, is excited about improving the service that AIMS accountants can offer their clients, stating, “AIMS is encouraging its accountants to support clients using next generation technology. Clear Books provides the platform for AIMS accountants and their clients to save time, work more efficiently and collaborate.”
