Who am I?

Hello, I’m Anita, a Chartered Accountant turned content creator on a mission to simplify money and taxes for the self-employed. (I’m also a Spreadsheet Geek and Money Nerd!)

I believe that just because we aren’t taught about money at school, it shouldn’t prevent us from creating a financially stable life on our own terms.

That’s why I created my website which is full of straightforward advice and guides to make topics like taxes, accounting, banking and insurance easy to understand at every point in your self-employed journey. I want to simplify business and tax for UK sole traders, like you.

You make money doing what you love; I’ll help you look after it.
