Partnership between Natwest, RBS and FreeAgent goes from strength to strength

The partnership established between Natwest, RBS and FreeAgent to allow small business users across the UK to enjoy the benefits of FreeAgent continues to go from strength to strength.
The initiative was launched by the banks back in March 2016 to find a cloud based accounting solution that would fit with their small business clients’ needs and FreeAgent emerged as the platform of choice from a list of 30 suppliers.

RBS buys FreeAgent for £53m

The Royal Bank of Scotland has bought Edinburgh-based accountancy software provider FreeAgent, in a deal worth £53 million.
FreeAgent’s share price increased by more than 80% in a single day following the news.
RBS BidCo will acquire all of the issued and to-be-issued ordinary share capital, with shareholders entitled to receive 120 pence for each FreeAgent share held.
The cloud accountancy company directors have reportedly advised shareholders to accept the deal.

FreeAgent offered to RBS business customers

Cloud accountancy platform FreeAgent has partnered with banking giant Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) to offer their cloud accounting platform to all RBS and NatWest small business customers.
In a statement the bank said that they hoped the partnership would save their customers time and energy when it came to managing their finances.
FreeAgent makes tax returns quicker and easier to complete and it can also help businesses improve their forecasting.
