Becoming a freelance creative can be one of the most liberating and fulfilling experiences. From hand-picking projects to being in control of where and when you work, it’s a fantastic way to get in control of your life and away from the hustle and bustle of traditional employment.
However, with this great freedom comes the great responsibility of business and financial management – all the stuff that distracts you from the most important thing, your creative work. With more than 240,000 curated professionals working with Twine and businesses all over the world hiring them, it’s fair to say that strong business management skills are a major plus.
Tackling business finances and accountancy can be a demoralising task, not to mention that any screw ups with your tax management could really affect your profits.
The reality is if you’re finding managing your accounts to be really stressful and time consuming then it’s not because your stupid or lazy, it’s because your accountancy service is not giving you the support you need.
So our message is this, it’s not you, it’s your accounting service.
