Do you have a setup fee?
No! The billing cycle will simply start on a monthly basis from the date you join, normally once the FreeAgent account is created for you.
What information do you need to setup my company?
Along with basic details such as name, address and your company name, we'll also need your Date of Birth, National Insurance number, Proof of Address (usually a bank statement or similar) and Proof of ID (a passport or valid photo ID). You can see all of the info on our registration form.
