Squared Away Consulting selected Freeman & Co as their accountants over 4 years ago. During this time their service has been nothing but efficient, professional and of the highest quality. They helped us make the required business changes including company shares, PAYE and VAT. Having been impressed with Freeman & Co’s service over recent years they were the natural choice as our accountants when we established Squared Away Digital. Again Jonathan and the team arranged all the legislative and formalities required for an Ltd Company allowing us to focus on growing that business too.
Over the years Jonathan has saved both companies and ourselves personally significant amounts of money. His availability and willingness to quickly answer or research any queries we have has assisted us in being agile and making informed decisions with confidence. I am more than confident Freeman & Co will continue to provide the same high professional standards over the coming years and look forward to continuing to work with them.
I launched my company 18 months ago. Jonathan has been fantastic at helping me start up the company accounts. I am using Xero and Jonathan helped me get the settings correct for my business. We recently connected Taxomate to the Xero account for the Amazon sales. Jonathan has been invaluable with helping me set this up and resolve reconciliation issues with Amazons settlements. Jonathan is very happy to look in to new online software to connect to Xero to make the most of the features available. I definitely couldn't have done it all without his help. He is always at the end of the phone when I have a question and is quick to look in to any issues I have via his online Xero login. He has also been very efficient with completing my tax returns. I would definitely recommend using him as your accountant, especially if you do your accounts online with Xero.
Also, efficient and helpful with all queries. Happy to give advice and make suggestions about initiatives that may help the company progress.
Superb and helpful in every way, a very professional accountant, who is also friendly and approachable at the same time. I can confidently say, I will be using Freeman & Co for many years to come.Mr M Hull - sole trader and personal tax client - Market Harborough
Leaf Architecture started 10 years ago and we have enjoyed a growing reputation for bespoke and creative architecture since. In terms of our business success and financial management I can firmly credit this to choosing the right accountant in Freeman & Co. They helped setup the business from day one - with companies house through to a limited company, shares, VAT and tax management to annual accounts and PAYE. Jonathan keeps up to date with changes in legislation that effect both our business and personal finances and has on many occasions saved thousands of pounds. Jonathan is extremely professional and polite as well as being helpful when needing financial advise or clarity. It is not an exaggeration to say that I put a lot of our businesses success down to a solid financial foundation put in place with Freeman & Co and can highly recommend their services for both new businesses and those established. On behalf of Leaf ArchitectureMr R D Norwood BA Dip Arch RIBA - Managing Director - Leaf Architecture and Design Limited (Market Harborough)

We are both very relieved, to say the least, with the outcome of the HMRC appeal. Again, many, many thanks for your assistance in resolving this matter.Mike Sweet - Director - Squared Away Consulting Ltd - Market Harborough, Leicestershire.
I have used Jonathan as the accountant for my Sole Trader business since 2008 and due to ongoing success, in January 2018 my business became a Limited Company. Jonathan helped me to make the changes to my accounts, banking and Kashflow as well as providing lots of information on who I needed to inform and when, about the changes. The paperwork involved in setting up the business was very easily handled with Jonathan's help and there were no problems at all during the changeover. Advice was given on all aspects of the Limited Company setup and it was done at a pace which suited me and allowed me to continue working at my job while the administrative issues were sorted out by Jonathan. I am now in my 9th month operating as a Limited Company and can already appreciate the benefits of the change. Separating my personal expenditure from the business has enabled me to see more clearly where I can improve things and make savings and this has enabled me to run my finances in a much more efficient and easier to understand way. I am delighted with the way things have turned out and can highly recommend Jonathan's services should you decide to go down the Ltd Company route.Ms Janet Nelson - Owner - Janet Nelson Limited T/A Artsea - Crail, Fife, Scotland

After having problems in completing my self-assessment last year I decided I needed an accountant, and looking online I was not very impressed with the advice on offer, but then found an advertisement in my local ‘Rural Trader’ for Jonathan Freeman. As soon as he answered my telephone call, I felt that here was someone I could trust. That trust was confirmed when we met for the initial consultation. Jonathan took the time to explain things in a clear and concise manner, and put me at ease with my concerns and questions. He dealt with my accounts quickly, and in a very professional manner, and through his attention to detail, he also found, that following some amendments to my previous years self assessment, I was actually due a tax refund. Quite a sizeable one for me personally, and I am still trying to digest this information! It was the best decision to contact Jonathan, and I cannot thank him, or recommend him highly enough.Mrs S Mann - Great Glen, Leicestershire
