The current account for freelancers and self-employed people.
Working for yourself creates some unique challenges when it comes to money. We all know what the big banks are like for fees, slow transactions and pretty poor customer service. Just like Monzo for personal current accounts Coconut have developed the Coconut freelancer current account designed for the gig economy.
Coconut Freelancer Current Account
It’s designed to help frazzled freelancers with three things: managing their expenses and receipts, keeping on top of their taxes and getting paid on time. If you’re familiar with banking app Monzo, you’ll also recognise some of the nifty touches with live data: you’ll get instant notifications on transactions, such as, which take at least one day to show up on your high street bank account.

We all know the daily pain of keeping track of expenses and remembering to keep or photograph receipts.
