SELF-EMPLOYED and small business accountancy network Danbro has formed ties with online accounting technology firm FreeAgent, in a deal that will see 4,000 Danbro clients introduced to FreeAgent’s accounting platform.
FreeAgent claims that the commercial partnership is ‘the single-largest deal involving any UK cloud accounting provider’, as Danbro will now offer its clients the opportunity to use FreeAgent as their preferred cloud accounting system.
The platform gives self-employed individuals and small business owners the ability to manage their expenses, invoicing, banking, time tracking, project management and tax forecasting.
In March, FreeAgent claimed its new bulk payroll platform will allow accountants to cut through bundles of red tape and save hours of administration every month.
John Thorburn, director of accountancy services at Danbro said the deal is in keeping with the network’s ‘big-growth ambitions’, and added: “By giving people free access to FreeAgent’s software alongside Danbro’s expert service, we’re confident we can help the self-employed sector to flourish”.
