Great service

Tristan Bailey, Freelance Web Developer19th of November 05:18

When moving to freelancing this was the first product I was recommended and using it has been great. Its nice and clean and I havent had any issues with getting clients to pay with it past the normal hurry alongs. They have been very quick and clear to answer my accounting questions too.

I like Freeagent

Henry18th of March 09:27

I've been using freeagent now for just under a year and I'm really impressed by the amount of work that has gone into making this such an intuative accounting package. The customer support is quick and it has a number of excellent features, although I would like to see more - things like the lack of proper multi currency support is an issue for me also...and it has been on the 'to do' list for some time now.

lacks multi-currency support

alg0003rd of April, 2013 12:12

FreeAgent lacks proper support multiple currency. Around a year ago, they said they were adding it. A year later, it's still not there! If you need this feature, its absence is a real killer. Xero seems to have it.

Response from FreeAgent

Hi there. FreeAgent has multi-currency, multi-language invoicing and as of earlier this year allows you to record bank accounts in a foreign currency also.
