Yes! Totally free – and it always will be.

Our bread and butter is our accounting support: professional expertise provided by our network of accredited accountants. Back in 2017 when we launched TaxScouts in the UK, we did that selling our slick and snappy online tax returns, filed by an accredited accountant. Now we offer two one-off accountant-based services in the UK (tax returns and tax advice consultations), and we’ve got more in the pipeline coming in 2023. 

We charge for our accountants’ time and expertise. But when it comes to the bookkeeping tools to help you get organised, it’s on us. Part of our ethos is keeping things simple and straightforward, and not needlessly charging for things. So we’re sticking to that belief.

No. It’s totally up to you whether you buy a paid service in addition to using the free tools. 

The self-employed. So anyone earning untaxed self-employed income, whether this represents all of your income or a side hustle alongside your salaried job.

It’s especially useful for people who are just starting out as self-employed as we can help you get organised to make tax-filing totally seamless. Everything we’ve built is easy-to-use and stored online so everything you need is all in one place.

Expenses are costs that you might be able to claim against your earnings so that you pay less tax.

What you can claim will depend on your situation, sources of income, and the tax-free allowances which you’re already claiming.

The two most common sources of income where it makes sense to claim expenses are for self-employment and rental income, but it is possible to claim certain expenses from other sources of income too. Read more about expenses.

You can claim pretty much everything that you use “for business”:

  • a portion of your home
  • transport costs
  • accountant fees (including ours!)
  • laptop, phone, etc.

For most of these things, you need to calculate what proportion you actually use for your self-employed business.

The complete list of self-employed allowances is here.
