Filter inactive clients

I would like to return a list of only active clients from the API as per in the practice dashboard drop down to view active clients. The logical place I would of expected would be from the Accountancy Practice API. Is this missing from the documentation or is this information held in another place.

Many Thanks

Hi, Nick.

Unfortunately you’re 100% right. There’s no way to filter them out and there’s no way to tell which ones are active without first making a call against them.

I’ve opened a card on our public request board ( and we’ll take a closer look at it.

ok thanks Pat, I’ll keep an eye on the request

Hi, Nick.

Quick update to let you know we added a new field status to the output of the clients. It will typically be “Active Licence”, “Closed Licence”, or “Inactive Licence”.

Take care,

Pat George

Fantastic thanks for updating this.
