“Being recognised in the Deloitte Fast 50 list is a great accolade in itself, but being listed for two years in a row is a tremendous achievement.

Online accounting pioneer named as one of the UK’s fastest growing companies for the second year running

Innovative online accounting company FreeAgent is celebrating after being named one of the UK’s fastest growing technology firms for the second year running.

FreeAgent - which provides the UK’s market-leading online accounting system specifically-designed for micro businesses and freelancers - featured in 18th place on this year’s prestigious 2014 Deloitte Fast 50 list in recognition of its impressive growth over the past five years.

The company reported a 1274% rise in turnover in the period 2008-2013 to earn its place on the 2014 Fast 50 - the annual list that Deloitte publishes of the 50 fastest growing technology companies across the whole of the UK. The accolade also represents the second year running that FreeAgent has been featured on the prestigious list.

Ed Molyneux, CEO and co-founder of FreeAgent, said: “Being recognised in the Deloitte Fast 50 list is a great accolade in itself, but being listed for two years in a row is a tremendous achievement. It’s a real testament to the hard work of our team, our continued growth as a company and the rising number of passionate and loyal customers who are using FreeAgent to manage their small business finances.

“Since starting FreeAgent in 2007, we’ve been able to build our business successfully to the point where we now have over 35,000 customers in more than 80 countries. We’re also steadily growing an outstanding team in Edinburgh who have all been instrumental in enabling us to cement our position as the UK’s market-leading online accounting system for micro businesses and freelancers.

“We’re thrilled to once again be named among the 50 fastest-growing technology companies in the UK and we hope to build on this success in the coming years by growing further and continuing to provide the best service for all of our customers.”

In addition to being placed 18th on the 2014 Deloitte Fast 50 list, FreeAgent was also revealed as the second fastest-growing company in Scotland - as well as the 9th fastest-growing company outside of London.
