Finances with Hnry // Episode 41
If you talk to lot of self employed people, or people thinking about starting a business, more often than not the one key area they are feeling unsure of are the finances – tracking income and expenses, paying tax, when do you have to pay GST, and those surprise ACC invoices that always show up out of the blue.
So of course for one of our Topic Chats I had to get a bit finance-y. If I'm honest, it's probably my least favourite area of business and - as today's guest himself says - it's totally not sexy. But it's so important if you want to succeed in business – and actually just in life in general, right?
Today's guest is James, co-founder of Hnry. Hnry is a handy app that takes all the hassle out of accounting for self employed people, freelancers and contractors. Your income comes in and Hnry automatically takes out your tax and ACC payments at the appropriate rate using a clever algorithm, so you know you're meeting your requirements and don't have to worry about setting aside money each month (or let's be honest, spending it accidentally!). So handy!
On this chat I'll pick James' brain for some finance and business tips, but also make sure we hear the Hnry story too – as they are making some serious waves and disrupting a very old school industry in a pretty cool way. Alright, let's pop our money-geek hats on and kick into it...
