Not all APIs are created equal
Transform your connectivity with DataShare API
Our powerful APIs and broad platform connectivity take the pain out of accessing, structuring and interpreting your clients' financial data
Our API ensures the world's leading institutions can rapidly and securely connect to their small business clients.
The depth and breadth of financial data greatly increase business insights and reduces manual data preparation for small businesses. Only the API from Validis automatically structures data into a full chart of accounts regardless of accounting package source, powering faster financial decision-making.
DataShare’s standardisation technology allows our clients to receive uploaded management accounts information from various accountancy packages and review it as simple outputs through our DataShare API. Clients benefit from our standardised outputs as it helps simplify development, as the format will not change regardless of the accountancy package used to upload data.
The DataShare API allows our clients to access standardised transaction level data. Our unique standardisation algorithm allows us to re-build this transactional level data to the UK GAAP’s chart of accounts.
The DataShare API’s data accuracy and completeness has been validated by all of the Big 4 Audit Firms, and many major Banks within the UK and US. The standard and quality of this data is trusted to support regulatory activities, revenue verification, and allowed one of our clients, a Tier 1 lender to improve their prediction to the default model by 26 Gini points.

The partnership formed with nCino allows lenders to auto-populate financial spreads. It is based on their chart of accounts using our DataShare API.

AccountScore approached to collaborate and bridge the gap between OpenBanking and OpenAccounting. The OpenBanking partnership we created with AccountScore gives SMEs the ability to upload banking data and management accounts information in one simple workflow, streamlining the customer journey.
