SMALL BUSINESS ACCOUNTING SOFTWARE OF THE YEAR

The SME accounts category is always the busiest and most hotly contested of our annual awards and this year was no exception- with added Covid disruption on top. Last year’s winner Capium missed out on this years shortlist as did once-hardy perennials VT Transaction+ and Sage 50clou. That left the road wide enough open for FreeAgent to edge past a still tough competitor set including Xero and Zoho Books to claim the 2020 Small Business Accounting Software of the Year Award.

Commentary: “In an amazing blanket finish, the differences between all the finalists in the Small Business Accounting Software of the Year category were wafer thin. But based on the continuing loyalty of its microbusiness users and a growing group of practitioner champions, NatWest subsidiary FreeAgent reclaimed the crown it used to win regularly when it was an independent software house.”

This year’s finalists:

  • Clear Books

  • Countingup

  • FreeAgent

  • Xero

  • Zoho Books
