After leaving UMIST with an Honours Degree, Steve had 2 years’ experience in the field of insurance loss consultancy. In 1989, at the age of 24, Steve set up Carrington & Co, his own loss assessing practice. Over the years Steve has acted for several thousand clients in the preparation, negotiation and settlement of insurance claims.
His experience of badly sold policies and the nightmares people endured dealing with insurance companies led to him establishing Steve Allen Insurance in 2004, a service orientated insurance brokerage. The general insurance arm is done in association with Reich Insurance Brokers of Manchester. For the health protection side, such as life, critical illness, sickness and redundancy, Steve Allen Insurance is directly authorised by the FSA.
“Prior to using Freeagent, I used a spreadsheet system and the difference is amazing and saves me so much time by posting repetitive entries in a group rather than having to do this individually. You can also upload your bank statements, which is quick and easy, and because this system is online you can access it from anywhere. It also has many other added advantages, such as keeping a track of expenses, and you are able to see your expenditure on items on a monthly basis. I would highly recommend this system.”
“I started using Freeagent approximately six months ago. I have no previous accounting experience and found this system very easy to learn and extremely user friendly.”
