A genuinely useful tool for any small business!

2017-01-06

Having tried many other accounting/book keeping packages I can honestly say FreeAgent was the first one that felt intuative and easy for a non accountant.

Not for everyone, or even most...

2015-02-24

I now use Freeagent and wish I'd switched sooner.

Pros

Freshbooks gets plenty right. Tracking billable time against customers or customer projects is a breeze, and their invoicing and methods for collecting payments is really hard to beat. Plus, they integrate with so many other services, it makes it really easy to get addicted to. The things I love most - and the main reasons I'm glad that I left Quickbooks for Freshbooks is: Automated invoice reminders, which are totally flexible. This alone saved me a lot of time chasing down late payers. Your customers get a really nice interface for viewing all their invoices online - although I will say I think I only have one or two clients who ever even used the client portal for doing that. Most of them just go to their email to retrieve the links for invoices or statements, but it is still a really nice feature.

Cons

You can do this with expenses to some extent, but it's just awful to work with, when compared to Quickbooks, Xero, FreeAgent - pretty much anyone else.

As cloud-based accounting solutions continue to expand their invoicing features (along with the lines of what Zoho Books and FreeAgent have done), I think we were likely to see more companies opting for a combined invoicing and accounting solution.

Magnificent Customer Support, Good Accounting System

2018-02-08

Pros

FreeAgent is more advanced than my previous service provider, Freshbooks. It allows me to handle the split between personal/business bank accounts and their expenses better and even submits my tax return to HMRC for me.

Cons

This is the only area where I found Freshbooks to have the edge—it provided a daily timeline where I could click on my start time, enter the duration, client and project and track my time visually.
