Hnry vs DIY

See how Hnry is better for sole traders than doing all your taxes yourself

Here’s the thing - comparing Hnry and doing it yourself is like comparing apples and oranges.

Doing your own taxes sucks, and can get overwhelming and complicated real fast. Taking it all on yourself often means endless shoeboxes of receipts, rows upon rows in spreadsheets and the fear of not getting it right - not to mention the countless hours you're spending. Hnry, on the other hand, is totally different (and a world first, just quietly). What we offer gives new meaning to ‘all-in-one’ solution, because our service covers what others can’t.

Hnry vs DIY? Here are the benefits to using Hnry

We automatically pay and file taxes, provide a service for admin management, and become your accountant. In short – we get it done, so you can get peace of mind that your taxes are always up to date!

Why is Hnry ideal for sole traders?

Hnry has been designed to give sole traders everything they needed. We’re not fancy, overcomplicated software that’s designed to make it easier on your accountant, we’re not just a simple admin management system, and we don't have multiple levels of subscriptions that limit you from features. None of the fluff, we just get it all done for you — simple.
