How to Remove a Client from your Dext Prepare Account

You can remove a client permanently or deactivate a client from your Dext Prepare account.

Important: To be able to remove a client you must have Administrator level User Privilege access. If you don’t see the My Team menu, you don’t have sufficient access and must contact your account administrator or your accountant/bookkeeper to gain access or request removal of the user.

There are two options available when removing a Client from your Partner Account:

Removing a client: completely removes the client from your account and severs the connection.

Deactivating a client: you keep access to the client account but suspend their Dext Prepare services.

If your client wants to move their Dext Prepare account to another accountant they will need to be removed from your account, and then an admin user in that client’s account must invite the new accountant to access their account by following these steps.

Note: If you wish to remove a client account that only has auto-generated users (i.e. the client has been created, but the send invitation step has been skipped), the only option is to deactivate the client. If you wish to remove the client, you must first invite a user to the client account.


Removing a Client

Go to:

1. My Clients in the Manage section of the sidebar.
2. Then, in the Actions column next to the client you wish to remove, and click Manage.
3. Click Edit.

4. On the Edit page go to the REMOVE FROM PRACTICE section, and click the Remove client button.

5. The next screen will explain what the removal process means for both you and your client. If you would like to proceed, click Next.

6. You will then need to select an account owner for the removed client. This should be the main business owner. Once you have made the selection, click Remove.

7. Once the removal is complete, you will see a notification banner. You and your client will also be sent an email confirming the removal.

Please Note: The removal process is permanent and can only be reversed by the Client inviting the Accountant or Bookkeeper to reconnect.

Once your client has been removed, they will be able to start a free trial of our Dext Prepare product built for businesses or connect to a new accountant or bookkeeper.
