FreeAgent eases self assessment pain for SMEs

New Update

ENGLAND, UK: FreeAgent, the UK's market-leader in online accounting, is making Self Assessment even easier for small businesses this year by not only making tax return filing as simple as possible, but by also offering to help pay their tax bill.


To celebrate the launch of its innovative new "Fast File" feature - which enables sole traders to file their Self Assessment tax returns with HMRC directly through FreeAgent - the company will pick one lucky subscriber from its customer base and give them £5,000 toward their tax, in order to help further soften the blow of Self Assessment in 2014.

With the introduction of "Fast File", FreeAgent has become the first accounting system to offer sole traders in the UK the ability to automatically fill and file Self Assessment tax returns without the need to use HMRC Online.

FreeAgent automatically completes up to 90% of the self-employment forms directly from the user's existing accounting data, which means sole traders save valuable time and hassle when doing their Self Assessment; particularly during the traditionally stressful weeks leading-up to the filing deadline on January 31st.
