Accounting for Dummies!

I am a complete numpty when it comes to accounting, my brain just shuts down when presented with figures of any kind.  So when Andy left Pure Portugal and I had to take charge of doing our accounts, I needed to find something that was designed for dummies!

I did some internet research and anything with the word “spreadsheet” – which gives me horrors – was instantly rejected.

Then I found FreeAgent which seemed to be exactly what I was looking for – not only simple to use, and designed specifically for the way freelancers and small business owners work, it can handle multiple currencies, and multiple payment methods (bank transfer, paypal, etc – simply upload your statements every month).  It will even do your RTI reporting automatically for you – the joy! (Even the thought of attempting to navigate the HMRC website brings me to tears).

Another feature I like is that it’s online, so there’s no fear of losing all that important information, and worse – having to do the accounts all over again – arrgghhh!

They even had a month’s no-obligation free trial (with no need to enter any credit card details), and then the cost was tiny compared to other accounting solutions (just £30 per month, or £300 per year if you pay annually).

I still wasn’t too sure though – after all I am a complete numpty. It actually sounded a bit too cheap. Maybe I was choosing something that wasn’t really up to the job? Maybe it wasn’t a professional enough solution?

I haven’t been able to shake this niggling feeling, even though I’ve been happily using the software for over a year now. So I was delighted to learn that FreeAgent has just been rated the best accounting software for small businesses in the TrustRadius Buyer’s Guide to Accounting Software!
