If you asked today’s guest what she does for a living she’d tell you that she translates small business finance and tax into practical common sense, following the innocent drinks “nan test” – if you can’t explain a concept so that your grandma would understand, you’re making it too complicated!

As the Chief accountant at FreeAgent – the online accountancy software company, she helps to make online bookkeeping and accounting for freelancers, that’s not only very easy to use but even fun to use too. I use it and that is so true!

I couldn’t think of a better person to invite into the Insider’s Facebook group to talk to about tax and answer all our specific questions than Emily Coltman.
