What is FreeAgent?

An introduction to the FreeAgent Software, written by the guys at FreeAgent…….


What is FreeAgent and who is it for?
FreeAgent is an online money management and accounting tool intended for small businesses of up to 20 employees. This will include most kinds of freelancers, contractors and consultants. Whether you are just getting started, or are already in business as a sole proprietor or business, FreeAgent can save you time.

What does it do?

  • Send Estimates and Proposals
    Build professional estimates and quotes which can be tracked through to approval and converted to invoices.


  • Invoice with ease
    Charts of invoice payments show you, month-by-month, what payments are due, overdue
    or have been paid.


  • Manage your Expenses
    Track what your company owes you by adding out-of-pocket expenses, including scanned expense receipts.


  • Control the Bank Accounts
    Reconcile money in and out of the business via your electronic bank statements and build monthly balance charts.


  • See your Accounts
    Visual Profit and Loss statements show you how much money your business is making and spending.


  • Unlimited Clients, Users and Usage
    No limits on how many users can access your account, including giving access to your
    accountant or bookkeeper. Forget about monthly limits on invoices or clients – just use it as much as you need.For UK businesses it offers unrivalled support for UK taxes with comprehensive projections for Self Assessed Income Tax and Corporation Tax liabilities through our unique Tax Timeline. This can even be exported to your normal web calendar so you’re always on top of what, and when, you owe the tax man.


  • How safe is my data?
    All information which passes between our servers and your computer is encrypted using a technology called Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), the same technology that banks use to protect data.Our servers have very tightly-controlled physical security and highly resilient networking and power facilities.We look after your business data ourselves. We back up all our data every 5 minutes,
    and it is then encrypted and transferred off-site. It is therefore exceptionally unlikely that your data will be lost.Of course, you own your data. You can export all of your FreeAgent data at any time in Excel Spreadsheet (XLS) format, and analyse it or back it up yourself, as you see fit.


  • How private is my data?
    We take your privacy very seriously.FreeAgent is built around the principle that only you (or people you give login access to) can access your data. We undertake never to reveal any data to anyone, unless required to do so by law.
