It’s hard to watch prime time terrestrial TV these days without an advert popping up for accounting software telling us how to make our accounting and bookkeeping easier.
The last ten years or more has seen an unprecedented rise in the use of online accounting software. Starting off small and easy to use, many systems have evolved into function rich offerings with multiple integrations to other products covering almost all areas that a business owner could dream that they need for their financial wellbeing.
It’s great to have some functionality at your fingertips but it can come at a cost.
That’s why, in true CheapAccounting.co.uk (Cheap Accounting not Cheap Accountants!) style I love the FREE offering provided by NatWest who had the intelligent foresight to purchase FreeAgent and provide this function rich software FREE to all business bank account users.
FreeAgent is cloud-based accounting software used by approaching 100,000 freelancers and small businesses. It brings everything financial together from invoices, expenses, VAT and payroll automatically importing bank transactions eliminating much of the need for hours of bookkeeping.
