5 Tech Tools That Make Tax Easy

From searching for receipts to chasing up overdue invoices, the end of financial year brings with it a sea of unwelcome admin. Like any job, finding the right tools can be half the battle. It might be too late to do the heavy lifting this year, but these handy apps can help you be better organised for tax time in the future.


When used right, this powerful app can handle huge amounts of the admin tasks required at tax time. It gives you the ability to create, and store professional invoices. Expenses can then be paired with the invoices you create, allowing you to easily track and organise expenses and attribute them to the job. When tax time comes, this makes it easier to attribute your claims.
