Freelancing is big Creatives have been freelancing for years. Project managers, too. More and more professionals are finding it easier to freelance because of:

  • online collaboration: broadband internet makes it easy for people to work together, without meeting in person

  • subscription software: independent contractors can use enterprise-level software for a small monthly fee

What this means for freelance accounting Accountants used to need a lot of corporate-level infrastructure. This included things like archive space for paper files, expensive software packages, dedicated servers, and meeting rooms. It also took a lot of human resources to do all the clerical work – entering data, filing documents, and maintaining journals.

And that was just to do the basics of tax and compliance. It required even more time, effort, space, and people to offer payroll services or produce good business management reports. With online accounting software, a single home-based freelance accountant can now do all of this on their own.
