Declarando is a platform that helps Spanish self-employed to avoid certain errors when paying taxes. These workers pay around 4,000 euros more per year in taxes than they should, as they deduct fewer expenses than they are actually entitled to in their quarterly VAT returns.
With Declarando, a self-employed person keeps his accounts, makes invoices, presents his taxes and optimises his annual income tax return. But the most important thing is that you do not need to hire an external tax advisor, as the startup already has its own, an automated virtual system of personalized advice.
The company, founded by Marta Zaragoza (Lawyer and CEO), Juanjo Traver (Economist and Head of Sales and Finance) and Vicente Solsona (Engineer and Head of Product and Marketing) in 2015, has a freemium subscription model. In the free version, the freelancer can present the tax models every quarter in just five minutes, and without having to go to the Treasury website.
On the other hand, in the payment version, which ranges from 39€ to 139€/month, Declarando takes care of the self-employed person’s accounting, optimises their income and offers tax advice to the user.
The company, which was launched on the market without external investment, participated in the Residency program of Google for StartUps of the Madrid Campus, and was one of the 10 fintech selected to be presented at the 2018 South Summit Madrid.
