How FreeAgent helps tradespeople

Access from anywhere

Instead of battling with a van full of receipts, trade businesses can use the FreeAgent mobile app on the go to immediately snap a photo of a receipt and add it as an expense to a project, track their time, or convert an estimate into an invoice.

Make good business decisions

FreeAgent’s tax timeline and cashflow reporting make it easy for clients to keep on top of upcoming VAT deadlines and helps with decisions like when to invest in new equipment or supplies.

"I find the estimates feature very helpful. I create an estimate and the customer agrees on the price. Once we do the work, one button turns it into an invoice and I send it over."
