Small businesses are HUGE

A free guide to working with small business clients

FreeAgent has been working with small businesses, freelancers and contractors for eight years now, and we've got to know them pretty well in that time.

Our free guide concentrates on what you can put in place to make these business relationships as strong and productive as possible.

A market with HUGE potential!

While we always knew this market was big, it's still staggering to look at the stats and see the number of small businesses who could benefit from the advice and support of an accountant. Did you know that:

  • 95% of all UK businesses are sole traders or micro-businesses.
  • Micro-businesses generate £655 million in turnover a year, or 19% of all UK business turnover.
  • Businesses with no employees are the fastest growing in the UK.1

It's clear that this market presents a huge opportunity for accountants – in fact, small businesses probably already make up much of your client base.
