Danbro signs cloud accounting deal
National accountancy firm Danbro has signed a cloud accounting deal which it says will give thousands of self-employed individuals and small businesses across the UK free access to the FreeAgent platform.
Under the partnership, 4,000 of Danbro’s freelancer, consultancy and micro-business clients will be able to manage their business finances by accessing the FreeAgent platform for free.
John Thorburn, director of accountancy services at Danbro, said, “This is a fantastic deal for Danbro’s customers and allows them to manage their money on the go while also giving them access to a wealth of innovative tools and applications.
“We have big growth ambitions and a reputation for using the latest technology to help our clients work more effectively and save money. While our clients will see no changes to the service they receive, this deal with FreeAgent will allow us to do even more for them and ensure they can concentrate on making a success of their businesses.
“This is the biggest cloud accounting deal signed in the UK and demonstrates the scale of our own ambitions. By giving people free access to FreeAgent’s innovative software alongside Danbro’s expert service, we’re confident we can help the self-employed sector to flourish.”
Under the deal, Lytham-based Danbro will offer clients the opportunity to use FreeAgent as their preferred cloud accounting system. The company says this will enable it to work even more effectively with clients and provide deeper, expert insights into their business accounts.
Ed Molyneux, CEO and co-founder of FreeAgent, commented, “We’re thrilled to announce this partnership with Danbro, which is not only our biggest deal, but also the largest of its kind ever in the UK cloud accounting sector. Many more of their clients will soon join those who are currently benefiting from the FreeAgent platform, which highlights our mutual commitment to supporting micro-businesses and providing them with the best possible tools to manage their accounts.
“Danbro is one of the leading, rapidly-growing accountancy firms in the UK who share many of the same values as FreeAgent does for helping clients run better businesses and understand their finances. It’s great to be partnering with them and we look forward to working together in the years ahead.”
