Announcing our FreeAgent integration

This article describes our Legacy integration with FreeAgent which has been replaced with a newer, upgraded Open Banking integration. Up to date details can be found on the FreeAgent website.


We’re pleased to announce that, as of today, your Tide account will be able to link directly to FreeAgent. This integration lets your Tide transactions be uploaded automatically into FreeAgent, giving you better visibility over how your business is doing. For now this integration is available on the web only – you can access it here.

What’s the integration, and what are the benefits for me?

It’s a feature for users of FreeAgent, the accounting software service. Our integration creates a direct connection between your Tide and FreeAgent accounts. Instead of manually downloading and uploading electronic statements, you’ll now be able to connect your FreeAgent account to Tide – and we’ll automatically import your transactions.

The integration is secure, free and will save you time, month in, month out. No more downloading, re-formatting, and uploading into FreeAgent – simply authorise the connection once and leave the rest to us.

Great. How do I set the integration up?

Head  here and follow the simple instructions. You’ll see three steps:

1. Authorise Tide on your FreeAgent account

2. Authorise FreeAgent on your Tide account

3. Select the Tide account(s) you want to match with your FreeAgent “bank accounts”, and select the start date for which you’d like transaction information shared

We have an additional FAQ here if you have more questions.
