As a sole trader, tax used to be something I dreaded. I hated doing my business activity statement and keeping track of my PAYG instalments. But with Rounded, I barely have to do anything! It takes about 30 seconds to pop the numbers into my BAS, and all I have to do for my income tax return is share access to my account with my accountant.

Doing my business taxes used to be the hardest part of being a freelancer. Now, it literally takes me minutes to submit my return every year. I love the tax calculator – it makes it super easy to see where I stand throughout the year so I can make sure I have enough stashed away.
