Comma was founded in 2019 by Tom Beckenham.
Here is what he had to say:
Right now millions of bookkeepers are cleaning up the mess that their clients send them only to present them with... not very much at the end of each month. To know what to pay, clients still have to login to their accounting system, find bills, then copy and paste bank account details to pay suppliers, contractors, and staff. This can be a real pain for business owners, especially as their time is so valuable in terms of growing their business.
Comma makes it easy for accountants & bookkeepers to create and share payment runs with their clients so they can then pay those runs on their phone or desktop, in a batch, using their own existing bank account.
We are making use of the very latest in open banking technology to make this happen, and it will be an absolute revolution to the bookkeeping process.
