All Together Now: What happens when banking, finance and accounting collide?  Ed Molyneux – Chief Executive, FreeAgent*

It only seems like yesterday that cloud accounting was the latest innovation. Now there’s an even faster shift occurring, driven by Open Banking, Making Tax Digital and a new wave of technology development from providers old and new. Business owners’ expectations of what their banks and accountants should provide has never been higher, and both start-ups and incumbents are rising to the challenge.
