iOS users will see the features available immediately, but Android users will have to wait for a few weeks for the feature to be added.

Current Metro Bank customers will be able to register for a free Clear Books accounting trial via the Metro Bank app. It is a 30-day free trial, which will give users the opportunity to raise professional invoices, manage transactions and view financial reports.

It isn't simply a free trial: Metro Bank customers will also be provided with a 25% discount at the end of the free trial period.

“We worked alongside Metro Bank to carefully design a customer experience that provided small businesses with access to Clear Books accounting tools through Metro Bank’s online banking platforms,” said Clear Books CEO, Ruth Fouracre.

“This partnership provides users of both Clear Books and Metro Bank with great tools, a more aligned experience between the two products, and amazing discounts.”

"We’re thrilled to partner with Clear Books to provide our business customers with essential money management tools, easily accessible from our mobile app. These will empower SMEs to free up time in a way that wasn’t possible before, to spend running and growing their businesses,” added David Thomasson, Chief Commercial Officer at Metro Bank.
