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.

Frequently asked questions

Is Sorted for me?

Sorted covers the entire tax needs for the vast majority of the freelancers and self-employed professionals. Check out our FAQ section on does Sorted support my specific case for more information.

How much does Sorted cost?

You can register as a freelancer, do your bookkeeping and submit your yearly tax reports for free with Sorted. Once you start earning above a certain amount or have clients in the European Union (EU), you will need to submit a monthly or quarterly VAT declaration. This could be done with the Sorted Pro plan. Check out our pricing page for more details.

How do I prepare my tax reports with Sorted?

Your tax reports are automatically prepared by Sorted based on the income and expenses you enter. The only exception to this is your personal income tax return, which requires a few more details to complete the report, such as your health insurance or pension contributions.

Who submits my tax reports to the tax office (Finanzamt)?

You submit your tax reports electronically to the Finanzamt through Sorted. Sorted is connected directly to the Finanzamt through their official software provider, ELSTER.

How long does it take to submit my tax reports to the tax office (Finanzamt)?

After you submit your tax reports, you will immediately receive a document confirming that the reports have arrived at the Finanzamt. However, it may take a while before the Finanzamt reviews your tax reports and sends you a tax assessment via post.

Do I need to have an ELSTER account to submit my tax reports?

No, you can submit all your tax reports directly from Sorted. No ELSTER account or certificate needed. Sorted takes care of connecting to the Finanzamt through ELSTER.
