About Float

We’re a group of entrepreneurial minds united by a love of helping businesses grow, a passion for problem-solving, and a soft spot for puns. And cash flow, naturally.

Like all good origin stories, Float was born out of a singular need. Colin, our CEO, was running his creative agency and needed to understand how much cash his business was going to have in the future. Not knowing his future cash position meant he couldn’t make new hires with confidence or invest in his business.

He sat down behind his laptop on a Friday night (because this guy knows how to party), rolled up his sleeves, and began creating his cash flow forecasting spreadsheet. It was completely manual and too laborious to keep up-to-date, which meant that it was an absolute pain. He raised his fist to the stormy Scottish skies and declared “there must be a better way!”

And, wouldn’t you know it, there was. Since 2011, Float has grown from humble beginnings as a complicated spreadsheet to a growing team that helps businesses across the world make informed decisions about their cash. Over the past decade, we’ve integrated with FreeAgent, Xero, and QuickBooks Online. There have been multiple awards, like Xero’s Emerging Add-On, a Software Excellence award for Best Forecasting, and an ICB LUCA Award for Cash Flow Software of the Year. And there have been plenty of Burrito Fridays.

If you’re looking for a more traditional “About Us”, it’s this: Float is an online cash management and forecasting tool that helps you manage your business, keep on top of your cash, and make decisions with confidence.

Our mission is to put cash flow at the heart of every business. That sentiment guides everything we do.
