Coconut is an Accounting Game Changer!
Using the Coconut business bank account has transformed the way YES does business banking and all financial admin. We highly recommend it for anyone who is self- employed or has a limited company.
We can’t tell you how simple it is!
One banking app through which you:
- track your business bank account
- can link other bank accounts
- can give access to your accountant
- upload receipts and attach to the relevant expenses
- create and send invoices to clients
- can see, in real time, an estimate of how much your taxes will be
Please let it sink in for a moment just how great it is to have all of the above in one single app!
As a result, we therefore:
- spend less time on admin
- spend less money on an accountant
- spend nothing on bookkeeping
- expense more (e.g. it helps you actually to remember to spend business money on travel and some food etc and then immediately upload receipts)
- know as soon as clients pay
- spend NOTHING as it’s currently free of charge!
Having proper insurance protection is vital to running a business. You always have to think of the ‘what ifs’. We highly recommend our broker, PolicyBee, who provide hassle-free protection for freelancers, sole traders and limited companies.
They’re so helpful and friendly too and really quick to answer emails.
