Why FreeAgent?

17/12/18 | Business, Expenses, Technology

FreeAgent has been voted for as the UK’s #1 accounting software for small businesses and is included in all the packages we offer. Carry on reading to find out exactly why it’s so great, and why choosing Sidekick to manage your finances might be the best decision you ever make!


FreeAgent have been recognised and awarded for many of their efforts since starting business in 2007. Last week, FreeAgent was named “best new innovation in solving problems for small businesses using account aggregation” at the Financial Data and Technology Association (FDATA) 2018 Open Banking Awards, which recognise the many innovative ways UK companies are using Open Banking to help their customers. Ever since they received our Account Information Services Provider (AISP) registration from the Financial Conduct Authority earlier this year, they’ve been working hard on bringing Open Banking into FreeAgent, so they were honoured to receive this recognition.

But that’s not all! FreeAgent also had a successful night at the recent 2018 Computing Technology Product Awards in London, where they were named Best Business Software Provider. And earlier this month, their co-founder Ed Molyneux was delighted to be crowned CEO of the Year at the Scottish Tech Startup Awards.

2019 is gearing up to be an even bigger year for FreeAgent and Sidekick looking forward to continuing to work hard to provide the best services to our clients.
