When we launched Coconut in 2018, we knew a big transformation in how people work was afoot. Self-employment was booming. And people in search of more fulfilment, flexibility, and passion in their work were taking matters into their own hands.

Covid has only accelerated this shift. The opportunity for people to work from anywhere has never been greater. The access to people who want great products and services anywhere in the world has never had fewer barriers. And the drive to forge our own paths has never been more powerful.

The self-employment revolution is here, and Coconut is ready for it. 

Introducing: Coconut 2.0

We’ve always had the same goal, to make self-employment easier than being employed.

Back in 2018, we started making that a reality by launching our first product—a banking and accounting app for self-employed people. It was transformative for our customers in many ways; this was a product made exclusively for them, that catered to the needs of their professional lives in a way that no one had before.

Those three years taught us a lot about the self-employed community: what makes them tick, what fills them with joy, and what brings them the most anxiety.

So, in 2021, we decided to put that knowledge to good use, and home in even closer on what it is that self-employed people need most.

The result? Coconut 2.0, the ultimate tax app for self-employed people.

Coconut 2.0 doesn’t have a new vision. It simply focuses much more closely on the needs of one group of customers.

And it does so by equipping them with:

  • a complete record-keeping to tax filing experience
  • a “Making Tax Digital”-ready solution
  • a seamless integration for those who have accountants

Coconut 2.0 is the future of Coconut, and—we believe—of self-employment.

Come along to our Launch Event on 15th December

We’re incredibly excited about what Coconut 2.0 can do for the freelancing community. 

That’s why, on Wednesday 15th December, we’ll be hosting a launch event at the Loading Bay in Shoreditch to go even deeper into the how, what, and why of all of these exciting changes. And we’d love to see you there!
