Who are Freeagent?

FreeAgent was founded in 2007 by three small business owners: Ed Molyneux, Olly Headey and Roan Lavery who had all been working as freelance designers or developers and were getting pretty tired of the mess and stress of bookkeeping. They put their heads together and decided that there must be a better way to deal with their mounting piles of invoices, spreadsheets and receipts. And so, FreeAgent was born.

What is FreeAgent and who is it for?

FreeAgent is online money management and accounting tool intended for small businesses of up to 10 employees. This will include most kinds of freelancers, contractors and consultants. Whether you are just getting started, or are already in business, FreeAgent accounting software can save you time.

How much does Freeagent cost?

The prices are based on different criteria in that it’s focused on business type (Sole Trader, Limited Co., etc) rather than individual usage costs.  View their price list. The software has a 30-day free trial, so you have ample time to acquaint yourself with the program before signing up

I have been using another software; can I move across to Freeagent?

Yes, you can. Migrating to any new system may take time but there are simple steps to make it quicker. For example, moving data at either your year-end or the end of a VAT quarter makes the process much easier.

If you do want to move software platform, please do get in contact with us and we will be able to help with this, and if you are a RBS or NatWest customer, don’t forget to ask about your Fusion fees discount.

Do Freeagent offer a referral scheme?

Yes. Everyone who signs up to FreeAgent gets a unique referral code. If you know of other businesses who you think will benefit from FreeAgent, pass your referrer code onto them. If they subscribe to FreeAgent using your code, you will both receive a 10% discount on your next subscription payment and will still keep getting the 10% discount so long as the original referrer still subscribes to FreeAgent.

You’ll receive a further 10% discount for each subsequent referral you make, so if you make ten successful referrals you’ll be using FreeAgent for free!
