The tax regulations in Germany are pretty complex. Luckily Accountable makes the process of doing taxes worry-free and downright pleasant. What I really like is that they give you a guarantee that using their app will not get you into any trouble. That means they really stand behind their product, and I applaud that.


Extremely helpful as a foreign freelancer in Germany, would be lost without it. Any questions i ever have are also answered quickly and informatively by staff too.


Really nice app that has all that I want as a small business ( freelancer ). Simon on customer service was spot on


It’s intuitive and easy to use and all my administration is in one place. Next to that, the app actually gives you tax saving tips, just with those I’ve saved the more money then the app cost me!


The app looks great, it’s simple to use, and the support with video calls is excellent.
