Why use Xama with Karbon?

Xama provides accountants in the United Kingdom tools for:

  • Accessing Companies House information to easily establish beneficial owners and directors of a company

  • Securing identity Document Capture and Verification

  • Conducting AML Checks to provide further identity verification based on matches to independent data sources, such as the electoral roll and national identity register

  • Screening for Politically Exposed Persons and Sanctions

Connecting Xama with Karbon

Setting up the Karbon integration is effortless and is initiated from within Xama.

This guide will walk you through the five-step process which takes about five minutes to set up:

  1. Connect Karbon from within Xama

  2. Find your API key in Karbon

  3. Choose which contacts and contact types you would like to import

  4. Configuration is complete

1. Connect Karbon from within Xama

Navigate to the Hub Apps page within Xama. Find Karbon and click 'Connect'.

2. Find your API key in Karbon

Navigate to Settings > Connected Apps within Karbon where you will see the Xama app. You can obtain your API key by clicking on the Manage option and pressing 'Copy to clipboard'

Copy the full token provided in Karbon and paste it into the API key field in Xama. Then click next.

3. Choose which contacts and contact types you would like to import
Once the connection is established, you will be asked to select which types of contacts you would like to add to Xama, organisations or people or both. You can further refine the addition of contacts by specifying which contact types you would like to import:

4. Configuration is complete

The configuration is complete at this point and we encourage you to view and download the latest copy of our Karbon integration guide using the link provided.

5. Configuration Settings page

You will now be taken to the Configuration settings page.

From this page, you can make any amendments to your settings. If you would like to perform an import of your existing Karbon contacts, you can choose to do so via the Import function.

Note: This action can only be performed once every 24 hours. Be careful if you already have clients set up in Xama as this action does not perform duplicate checks and will recreate a client if the client was not originally created through a Karbon import.
