Here at FreeAgent we always love to see small businesses getting the kind of useful help and support they need to grow. After all, it's not too long ago that we were a young start-up getting ready to emerge, bleary-eyed, into the business world, and we know how important the first few months of trading are for any new business.
So we're really pleased there's a new initiative that’s just been unveiled by the Royal Mail which is specifically designed to help UK small businesses flourish - and we’re even more thrilled that we're a part of it!
We've joined forces - much like The Avengers - with some great small business experts from across the country including Enterprise Nation, Parcelforce and DBS Data to become official partners for the Royal Mail's "Simple Ways to Grow" initiative. Without getting too technical, it's essentially a scheme where small businesses can browse and choose from a melting pot of awesome services and products that will help them be successful in the current economic climate.
It's a brilliant idea that we hope will be hugely beneficial to any small business owner looking to grow over the coming years. Not only does it give them all of the tools that they need, all in one place, but they can also pick and choose what they think they’ll require for their business’s future success. So, if they want to ensure they’re keeping their finances and books in order, they can choose FreeAgent as part of their package.
What’s especially cool for us is that Royal Mail selected FreeAgent to partner with after looking at all the other online accounting solutions out there - so the fact that they’re fans of our software is awesome news and we’re chuffed to bits to be working with them.
Hopefully “Simple Ways to Grow” will be another important step in our vision to democratise accounting for small businesses and freelancers across the whole of the UK.
