Tax Q&A with Hnry
About this futureproofed workshop
In this online workshop, the sex worker friendly tax accountants at Hnry hosted a Q&A and guided us through their services and the features of their tax app. Additionally, Hnry helped us understand our legal and financial obligations as sole traders. These questions included what could or could not be claimed, what to do if you haven’t paid your tax in a while, setting up a Hnry PayID to take deposits anonymously, how Hnry automatically deducts your tax and super so you don’t have to and general tips to organising your finances.
We futureproofed the most commonly asked questions into graphics for you to grow your understanding around tax.

“Hnry made the idea of paying my tax less scary. As someone who is not well off, who has never been taught financial literacy and mostly lives week to week, this really took a lot of fear out of it. The presenter was very friendly and knowledgable, they not only say they are SWer friendly, they have actually put measures in place to BE SWer friendly. I was happy to hear that they will be able to help me sort my financial mess out, which they did in a very kind and understanding way. So I’ll be signing up to Hnry. Thanks Bigger Sister Channel.”
