The freelance lifestyle gives us space to explore an alternative way of living.
That’s what lures us in. The promise of flexibility, independence and control. The opportunity to embrace what really matters and make the system work for us. The vision of choosing our own clients, expressing our creativity, and maybe – some day – working from a sandy beach in Thailand.
But did you ever daydream about managing your money?
That part hit us like a slap in the face. Unexpected tax bills, missed filing deadlines, chasing payments from clients, managing an unpredictable cashflow. Money is a complicated business for freelancers. It’s the great unknown.
And we believe your bank can do more to support you. That’s why we’re building Coconut. A business bank account that works out your taxes, tracks your expenses and helps you get paid on time. An alternative bank account designed for freelancers, by freelancers.
We’ve explored the problem of money management from the inside out. First accidentally – when we became freelancers ourselves – and now very intentionally as we try to fix it. The team building Coconut is a mix of current and former freelancers, and we’re passionate about simplifying the way our community works with money.
