NEWS: FreeAgent Win Big At Annual Awards

Updated: Feb 7


Xtract Accounting, the small business Accountants for Directors and Limited Companies, reports that FreeAgent won a hat-trick of awards at the AccountingWEB Accounting Excellence Software Awards 2020.


On a cold night in December, celebrities and people from the accountancy community would normally gather for the AccountingWEB Accounting Excellence Software Awards. An annual event to celebrate the continued development of accounting software, as well as pioneering Accountancy Practices throughout the country.


However, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, this years award winners were announced and celebrated during an event held virtually earlier this month.


FreeAgent were one of the biggest winners on the night, scooping not one, not two, but three awards - ‘Best Small Business Accounting Software’ and ‘Best Small Business Accounting Software: Practitioners Choice’


The third award was for the FreeAgent Mobile App which was named ‘Best Data & Expense Management Software’.


FreeAgent’s CEO, Ed Molyneux, said “We’re absolutely delighted. It’s great to be recognised for all the hard work our whole team has put into continuing to improve and develop our software and service.”


Meanwhile, AccountingWEB said of FreeAgent’s win, “In previous years, we’ve seen differences in the ratings between business users and practitioners when it comes to bookkeeping applications. This year, however, the verdict was unanimous, with FreeAgent gaining consistently high scores from both camps.”


FreeAgent are no strangers to winning awards however, having previously won Small Business Accounting Excellence awards in both 2017 and 2018.


Here at Xtract Accounting, we are proud to use FreeAgent as our preferred accounting software partner, and we continue to provide free access to FreeAgent for small business clients who use our Monthly 'FD' service.


This hat-trick of awards further cements our belief that FreeAgent is the best accounting software for our small business clients, and we offer our sincere congratulations to FreeAgent on this fantastic recognition.


Other award winners included TaxCalc for ‘Accounts Production Software of the year’ and ‘Professional Tax Software of the year’, The Payroll Site for ‘Payroll Software of the year’, and Capium for ‘Practice Suite of the year’.



About the Author of this post…

A portrait of Gordon Roe

Hi, my name is Gordon Roe and I am the Founder and Managing Director of Xtract Accounting. Having worked in an accountancy practice setting for well over a decade, I had become accustomed to the same annual routine for clients - Books in… Analyse… Queries out… Answers in… Finalise… Accounts and Tax Advice out.


Then, in 2020 I realised I could use advancements in technology and software to significantly improve the relationship between accountant and client, and at the same time, provide an insightful and real-time tax advice service. After all, that is what the modern client expects and deserves!


And so, Xtract Accounting was born…
