21 Feb FreeAgent – The Best Accounting Software For Small Businesses?

Finding accounting software that fits your needs isn’t easy. Existing solutions are often complex with a steep learning curve, rendering them next to useless for small business owners.

In my desperate search for a solution that would offer greater functionality than the bog-standard Excel spreadsheet, I came acrossFreeAgent; an online, subscription-based accounting software that includes a host of great features including invoicing, expenses management, tax reminders, great visual representations and much more. I’ve now been using FreeAgent for the last few months and to tell the truth, couldn’t be more pleased.

Here are a few reasons why I love FreeAgent (and you will too!)

  • Amazing value for money: with packages starting for as little as £15 / month (for sole traders) and going up to £25 / month for limited companies, you simply can’t go wrong. What’s more, if you buy a yearly plan you get two months free – bargain!
  • Email reminders: a neat little feature that lets you create an automated email reminder to any outstanding debtors that if they don’t pay up soon, you’ll be coming round with the good ol’ baseball bat.
  • Bank account consolidation: updating your FreeAgent account is super easy. All you need to do is upload your electronic bank statements on a regular basis, and FreeAgent will update itself to reflect the money that has come in and out of your business.
  • UK-based: FreeAgent are a company based in the UK (Edinburgh to be exact), meaning the software has been developed and optimised to cater for the needs of other UK-based companies (unlike some other services).
  • Superb customer service: their customer service is shockingly good, with enquiries dealt with both promptly and effectively. Last time I had a question, I received a reply within the hour!

What’s more, FreeAgent is fast becoming a widely accepted standard by chartered accountants. For example, I came across a London-basedaccountancy firm called Maslins, who offer a very competitive service that works in harmony with FreeAgent. In short, if you’re not satisfied with your current accounting software, I strongly recommend you give FreeAgent a go.

You won’t regret it.
