My only regret is that I didn't move before!

I founded my company and did first year of accounting with a larger provider, that was cheaper and using their own accountancy software and not FreeAgent, and it's been a disaster. Not real interaction or customer care, and their software was a nightmare. I found about GoForma, their more 1-1 customer oriented approach, and FreeAgent that I found immediately much easier to use, and my only regret is that I didn't move before! Very welcoming, patient explaining everything, it just feels like they care. FreeAgent is amazing. Very happy to be with GoForma now that my company is starting gearing up.
