FIN Team

Meet The Team

Freedom in Numbers is a Sheffield accountancy practice with a big vision. Our goal is to build a reputation as being an asset to your business, not a necessity.

Our team at Freedom in Numbers is packed full of experience. We love what we do, and undergo regular training to ensure that our skills are up to date, and that we can offer the latest advice to our clients.

As we are pioneering cloud-based software, we are able to offer our services to anyone in the UK with access to the internet. We find this can be of huge benefit to small businesses based in rural areas.

Based in Sheffield, we can serve the surrounding areas of South and West Yorkshire, and Derbyshire, but being cloud based, we can work with businesses all over the country. Cloud technology allows us to work remotely with ease.

We love to meet you face to face, but if a face to face meeting is not something you can commit to now, we can also organise a call on Skype or Zoom.

Say hello to our experienced and friendly team, we’d love to get to know you too

About Natalie
