Emily Coltman

Emily Coltman, Chief Accountant to FreeAgent, is a very unusual Chartered Accountant – she speaks plain English as well as accounting-speak!

After graduating from the University of Cambridge, she trained and qualified with growing accountancy practice Cannon Moorcroft, where she looked after accounts and tax for a portfolio of micro-business clients.

This gave her a keen interest in accounting software and training, which led to starting up her own business making screen-capture tutorial videos, and later to joining FreeAgent, where she works with worldwide small businesses to help them use this simple online accounting system to keep their books in real time.

Emily is passionate about helping the owners of small and growing businesses to escape their fear of ‘the numbers’, and believes that, with the right tools and guidance – some of which she aims to provide in this book, absolutely anyone, even if they were hopeless at maths at school – can learn to look after the finances of a small business.
