When you first register for Clear Books as an accountant, you will need to set up the first account as your own Partner account. You can use this Partner account to keep your own books. If you would like to pay for client accounts, you must add a subscription to your Partner account. The payment method that you choose to use to pay for your Partner account will then be used each time you add a subscription on your client accounts.

The date on which you add a subscription to your Partner account will determine the date on which you will be charged for all monthly client subscriptions. However, the first month will be pro-rated appropriately.
