Who can use Accounting and Payroll Data?

Lenders for underwriting

SMB financing and insurance platforms can leverage headcount and payroll expense data to reduce fraud in loan approvals. Accounting data can supplement this by providing cash flow statements and P/L performance to further enhance underwriting.

FP&A service providers

With accounting data, FP&A’s can unlock rich insights on the feasibility of their client’s business model. FP&A experts can also pull department and compensation data from real-time Payroll data and slot them into P/L categories. With the combination of accounting and payroll data, FP&A can holistically assess financial models.

R&D tax credit companies

Tax credit companies help their SMB clients explore their options in state and federal tax credits. To do so, they require their client’s accounting and payroll data to determine the appropriate tax credit program their clients qualify for. With accounting and payroll APIs, these Tax credit companies can get instant access to their client's accounting and payroll data.
