FreeAgent Accountants

What is FreeAgent accounting software?

FreeAgent accounting software is a tool for freelancers, small businesses, and their accountants. It’s online accounting software that automatically generates invoices while allowing users to keep track of expenses and manage different projects.

Why Choose FreeAgent

FreeAgent is accounting software designed to make business admin and expense tracking as straightforward as possible – for small businesses and traders. Take a photo of your receipts and upload it straight to the FreeAgent app. It’s as simple as that!

With automatic Open Banking bank feeds, you can connect your bank accounts to FreeAgent and import bank transactions to build up real-time accounts.

Why hire TaxBite to help with FreeAgent

While FreeAgent accounting software makes tax digital, it is still recommended that you seek the assistance of chartered accountants to manage your accounts and help you with your self-assessment and other tax returns. 

Hire a dedicated account manager at TaxBite that is accustomed to helping small business owners and freelancers with their monthly Payroll, VAT returns, corporation tax returns, and all the legal “stuff” usually associated with managing accounts.

What are the benefits of using FreeAgent?

FreeAgent has numerous benefits for small business owners, sole traders and freelancers. If you’re looking to efficiently and accurately record your expenses, submit RTI directly to HMRC, upload electronic statements, and receive tax reminders, FreeAgent is the accounting software for you.

Moreover, FreeAgent’s tax timeline enables users to export their specific tax reminders into Google Calendar, Outlook, and other iCal calendars.

If that isn’t already enough, FreeAgent was voted both 2020 and 2021 AccountingWEB Software Awards top product in the SME Accounting/Bookkeeping Software category and winner of the Client App of the Year at the 2021 ICB Luca Awards.

FreeAgent can help with Payroll

Staying on top of PAYE can be challenging for small businesses. FreeAgent allows users to run their monthly Payroll and file their National Insurance and PAYE directly to HMRC.

With FreeAgent accountants software, everything is within one neat system, so you’ll save more time than if you were moving between multiple apps or systems. FreeAgent’s payroll feature will also automatically generate and update your books.

You are also able to generate payslips and P60s automatically each month. What’s more, the payroll system is included for free in the FreeAgent complete package.

FreeAgent can help with vat

You can file VAT returns to HMRC through FreeAgent’s Making Tax Digital connection. However, it’s worth noting that you must sign up for Making Tax Digital and link your FreeAgent account.

Users can access the FreeAgent mobile app from an Android or iOS device. The app allows you to manage your bills and expenses, organise bank accounts, transactions and feeds, manage your day-to-day admin tasks, and access performance insights. 

FreeAgent helps track mileage

If you use a vehicle to make a business journey, you can make a mileage claim to get tax relief on the cost of insuring, fueling, and maintaining the vehicle. 

You can use FreeAgent software to help keep track of mileage by adding several records at once with bulk upload in the ‘Expenses’ area of your dashboard.

It’s really easy to connect your PayPal to FreeAgent. This will enable your customers to pay you via PayPal. In addition, if you have a PayPal Premier or Business account, all of your transactions will be imported directly and automatically into FreeAgent.
