Streamline compliance and financial reporting. Power your advisory services.

Silverfin is the accounting platform forward-thinking firms like yours are building their cloud accounting strategy on.

We call them the connected accountants.

The four sights of the connected accountant

Silverfin unlocks four capabilities the connected accountant needs to succeed in the new rules of accounting. The more of these sights you have, the more connected you are.


With all your client data in one secure location you can see everything. Nothing goes unnoticed. Automatic updates from your clients’ systems also mean you know it’s up to date. 

Silverfin doesn’t care where the data comes from and integrates with all your clients’ accounting and finance systems. It even takes data from those paper files some of your clients still rely on when you’ve digitised them. No more awkward conversations with clients asking them to swap tools to work with your preferred system.  

Our cloud platform means you know you are working from the single version of the truth you share with the client. Armed with this reliable data you can confidently move on to completing your accounting workflows, reporting and analysis.

Real-time integrations

Our standardised and automated compliance, and financial reporting, means completing common accounting workflows can take just hours, not days. Core tasks like producing working papers, monthly closing, statutory accounts, management accounts, tax, and more, are quick, accurate and painless. And because Silverfin uses real-time data updated automatically from client systems, you and your client have complete confidence that the figures tell the full and accurate picture.
