Loved by freelancers

Excellent software!

If you are just starting with accounting or already using Smartsteuer, sevDesk and the like, you will feel at home here.

From my point of view it couldn't be easier, both in terms of interface / design and functionality as well as support.

Colleagues and friends of mine already use Sorted and are surprised by the easy handling and the access to a competent tax advisor (with focus on self-employment, e.g. as freelancer) at very reasonable prices.

Easy to organise everything

I'm very satisfied! Sorted helps me not to keep track of my papers. I save my invoices, see which invoices have not yet been paid and don't forget to track my expenses. For me, sorted is a great way to organise my papers.

Highly recommended

I've been using Sorted for almost a year and I'm very satisfied. It's easy to use, very good prices, good customer support.
