How to Create a Dext Solo Client Account

Adding a Dext Solo client account will create a dedicated space for you to manage the income source data for each individual you assist in reporting earnings to HMRC.

The same user privileges that exist in Dext Prepare apply in the Solo section. If you are not an Admin user you will not be able to add a Dext Solo Client account. See more on user privileges here.

To create a Dext Solo client account:

A business is the entity for which you will collect income source documents. This entity could be a Sole Trader, Property Business, Partnership, Limited Company etc.

A client may have multiple businesses or properties, so if needed you can add additional businesses after the first entity is added.

  • Or Bank: add transaction data by connecting to a bank feed or uploading a bank statement. A bank feed will import historical transactions as far back as the bank will allow.

  1. If a client has multiple businesses or properties you can add another to their account by clicking Add another business.
  2. When you are finished adding a business or businesses, click Next.
  1. On the next page, review the email that will be sent to the client, and add the client’s mobile number if you wish to send them an invitation by text. When ready, click Invite to Dext.
