To fulfil this vision, Georges’ team has designed a Saas product that takes care of freelancer’s accounting and tax paperwork in minutes by simply connecting to their professional bank account. The software then reviews every transactions, automatically tag revenues, fills in the paperwork and sends it the relevant tax administration. Doctors, lawyers, architects, and really any freelancers, can get rid of their accountant and gain real time insights into their accounting.
Georges is targeting a long existing market made of accounting consultancies and traditional players like BNC Express, with a touch of Machine learning and product design excellence.
