Solutions to optimise your business

FreeAgent works with market-leading integration partners, so that you can find new solutions to optimise your business processes or to incorporate FreeAgent alongside your existing tools. Integrations include: e-commerce and payment solutions, forecasting, CRM and time-tracking.

Open Banking

FreeAgent was the first accounting software to introduce Open Banking bank feeds. This allows regulated businesses access to their customers’ financial data - as long as customers have given their permission. If you have a Natwest business current account, then FreeAgent can securely integrate your banking data and accounting software.

File your MTD VAT return in minutes

Making Tax Digital (MTD) is a government initiative that means big changes to the current tax system. MTD reporting for VAT is now compulsory for all VAT-registered businesses.

We've partnered with FreeAgent to offer a free, HMRC-recognised solution to MTD for your business.

You can calculate and file your MTD VAT return directly from FreeAgent with one click.

Finance at your fingertips

FreeAgent lets you take care of business anywhere. With its handy mobile app it's easy to keep your accounts up to date while on the move - you can stay on top of your bank statements, create and send invoices, capture receipts and generate expenses.

Using FreeAgent gives you more time to focus on winning business, do more work or just put your feet up!

Ready to go?
