Simplifying tax by using technology
“There must be a better way.” is what Yogeeta Devi thought each time provisional tax was due and she’d spent hours and hours on calculators and spreadsheets to calculate accurate amounts for her clients.
Once she started talking to other accountants – to find that ‘better way’- she realised there wasn’t a better way. Everyone did their own manual calculations. “Unacceptable in this time and age – where there’s an app for everything”, Yogeeta thought. Months of research and hard work later, TaxBuddy was born.
Making tax simple and quick, for both business owners and accountants
Yogeeta’s passion is to make tax simple. With her extensive background as an accountant and her interest in technology, her goal is to simplify repetitive, time consuming tax processes – starting with provisional tax.
TaxBuddy is here for both business owners and accountants. TaxBuddy will help business owners to easily calculate provisional tax, accurately. And it will support accountants to serve more clients in less time, and also facilitate the changing role of accountants – where the expectations of them are to be more proactive and offer business advisory than been just a number cruncher.
