FreeAgent, cloud accounting software for small businesses and freelancers

Free Agent started back in 2007 at the same time JK Rowling was finishing her 7th and last Harry Potter book and Steve Jobs introduces the world to the Iphone. Their idea was to get accounting software to be user friendly for anyone who owns a business, demystifying accounting and redefining your relationship with your accountants.

They specialise in providing online accounting software to small businesses on a monthly subscription basis.

Red Leaf Accountancy has been the perfect find for all our accounting needs, including ongoing business advice and support. I can now see that I was missing some valuable advice as we rarely sat at the table with our previous accountants to discuss business needs.

Paul Evans - Director of Passfm Limited

After hearing about your work with other companies and individuals I had no hesitation in asking you to work on my tax returns. You took control in an extremely efficient and professional manner saving me a great deal of money. You are an excellent accountant but above all an absolute pleasure to deal with.

Bryan McCourt - Director of Premier Legal Assist

I certainly needed advice, to make sure that I am tax efficient and compliant with all the regulations. Jonathan quickly advised me on the best approach to take, and when I engaged Jonathan took charge of the problem so I could get on with the parts of my business that I excel at. I can heartily recommend Jonathan and Red Leaf Accountancy to give you and your business peace of mind.
