A DEDICATED accountants' division has been launched by Edinburgh-based accountancy software firm FreeAgent.

The company has invested in an initial 12-strong team that will spearhead its work in the accounting sector and liaise closely with accountants to introduce and familiarise them with its award-winning online accounting system.

The new division is designed to give UK practices access to FreeAgent's range of accountant-focused programs and official accreditation process, as well as extending the company's support channels to accountants.

Among the dozen staff comprising the division, FreeAgent has recruited former ICAEW business development manager Andrew Garvey, who will head the company's work with accountants in Wales and the South West.

CEO and co-founder of FreeAgent Ed Molyneux said: "We're thrilled to launch our first dedicated division for the accountancy profession, which will provide accountants with practice and client training, marketing assistance, formal accreditation and exposure to our rapidly-growing base of micro-businesses.

"We've already put together a strong team with a lot of experience within the accountancy profession to lead our... efforts, and we believe this expertise will be invaluable as we drive forward our work with practices across the country. As we step up our endeavours in this sector over the coming years, we expect to grow our division even further so that we continue to provide the best service possible to UK accountants."
