Save hours of paperwork with FreshBooks and Barclaycard

Less paperwork. More time to focus on your business

Running a small business is no easy feat. There are many things to think about, from customers to cashflow – but manual admin shouldn’t have to be one.

With FreshBooks, you can automate tasks like invoicing and expenses. That way, you’ll get a clearer view of your finances – making it easier to track your cashflow and any tax owed.

It could also save you 553 hours a year on admin tasks – giving you more time to do the things you love.*

And the best part? It’s absolutely free when you sign up to make or take payments with us – and you’ll have it for as long as you keep your account.
