Our story

Parpera - par  / pa: / pera / ˈpɪərə / Latin noun, translates to "fair wallet"

Parpera makes it easy for people to do business so they can focus more on what they love.

We're an Australian fintech that's building an ecosystem of fair and transparent solutions to make it easier for people to set up, manage, and grow their business.

Founded in April 2020, we've raised AUD3.7m in equity funding and have assembled a high-performing and experienced team across Australia to deliver on our mission.

In October 2021, we launched our Parpera App, which grew to serve hundreds of Australian businesses, providing access to a digital business account, business debit card, invoicing, payments, cash flow, and tax management capabilities, all in the one app, and empowering them to focus more on what matters most.

Sadly, on 29 June 2022, we had to temporarily pause the set up of new accounts, due to the closure of our partner bank, Volt (read more).

But in true small business spirit, we didn't give up. We partnered with Wise and relaunched on 29 June 2023 (exactly one year later!) to better serve hundreds of Aussie businesses (read more).
