About us

Freelancing is about more than money

We all start working for ourselves for different reasons. For some it’s about greater flexibility about where we work or what we do. For others it’s a journey of personal discovery. Some of us have spotted an opportunity to earn more. And for others there’s a dream of working from a beach somewhere hot.

But what we don’t factor in are the unique challenges when it comes to money. Staying on top of tax and expenses, getting paid on-time or managing an unpredictable flow of income. All of this takes us away from doing more of the work we love.

Coconut was born out of this frustration. It’s a smart business current account that’s built for the unique needs of freelancers and self-employed people. It helps you manage tax, stay on top of expenses and get paid on-time.

Meet the team

We’re putting years of experience in accounting, technology and freelancing to good use and creating the current account that solves the biggest money problems we face when we work for ourselves.
