Spotlight on… FreeAgent
AVA Solutions has recently become a business partner of FreeAgent, a cloud accounting package tailored towards micro-businesses, such as sole traders, partnerships and small limited companies. It’s particularly suited to the contractor market.
I’ve been an advocate of FreeAgent for some time now. I’ve used it for my own business and had plenty of experience using it as it was the preferred accounting package of a former employer. What I love about it is its simplicity; the main point of FreeAgent is to be user-friendly. No jargon, no fancy accounting terms, just an easy-to-navigate portal that suits business owner and book-keeper/accountant alike.
If your business falls into one of the categories above, and you only require monthly payroll (the only drawback to FreeAgent is it’s inability to do a varied pay run), then AVA Solutions would provide you with your own FreeAgent portal at no extra cost, so you can keep track of your available drawings, tax liabilities and payslips/P60’s. You can even use it to raise invoices and log your expense receipts.
FreeAgent comes with a brilliant app that has almost as much functionality as the desktop version, that you’ll be able to download and use on the go. If you’re anything like me, you want to do things quickly and when it is convenient and the app is great for accommodating this.
We will set it all up for you and manage the input of information, but you can see the status of your business finances whenever you wish. We can talk you through the system and where to look for the information you need. Contact us today for a quote and to see if FreeAgent would work for you.
