Making businesses happier and more successful by putting them in control of their finances
What gets us up in the mornings is taking care of big problems for small businesses, freelancers and their accountants.
Cast your mind back to 2007, we were all drooling over the very first iPhone, the Kindle was about to change our reading habits, FitBit decided we all needed to get in shape and of course the cherry on the cake was the launch of FreeAgent!
Our founders Ed, Olly and Roan had all been working as freelance designers or developers for a while, 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.
From those humble beginnings of late nights coding and early morning coffee runs, FreeAgent has grown and evolved hugely.
What started out as a way for the founders to solve their own bookkeeping woes, has turned into an accounting solution that helps over 70,000 freelancers, small businesses and their accountants take care of their finances today.
From our very first employee back in 2008 (who’s still with us today, shout out to David Gauld!) we’ve grown to our thriving team of almost 170 who share our vision and values.
Since the company was acquired by the Royal Bank of Scotland Group in early 2018, our growth has been given a turbo boost, yet we remain operationally independent of the group.
We’re all united by our mission to streamline business admin for small businesses, leaving them to focus on the more important stuff, just like Ed, Olly and Roan did all those years ago.
What makes us tick ❤️
We’re very lucky at FreeAgent to have lots of very lovely customers. The wonderful feedback that we receive on our product and the amazing job that our team do every day keeps us coming back for more.
